Q: I am hurting just beneath my ribcage on my right side. I feel a little nauseated. It may sound

funny-but to sleep at night--I must lay on my right side-if I try the left-I can feel more pain.  I have been a little constipated the last few days.  I am tired and yet it is hard to sleep.  I am 52-2 children by C section-over 30 years ago.1 later surgery to remove my appendicts about 28 years ago.  I take no meds.

Time to see your doctor. You may be experiencing gallbladder disease. The gallbladder is located in the right upper part of the abdomen, near the liver. A simple blood test and maybe an ultrasound can diagnose gallbladder inflammation. Many women your age have had their gallbladders removed. But, do not wait too long to have it checked because like the appendix the gallbladder can rupture and that is when things get complicated.

Have your gallbladder checked immediately!!! See my post from earlier today, I have become a gallbladder expert lately. Good luck! Christine

Debster,

I am a retired LPN due to my disabiling chronic pain. Your symptoms, to me, sound typical of a diseased gallbladder. Surely by these symptoms and as time as marched on since this posting, I pray this has been detected.
