Two days ago I started experiencing what I can only describe as a sharp stabbing pain that randomly comes and goes either in my right side ribs or under my right shoulder blade. I thought it at first to be trapped gas but this feels different. I have no other symptoms, no fever, chills, no elevated heart rate or bp. I do suffer from GERD and take 40mg of prilosec and 150 mg of Zantac as needed up to 2xs daily. I do have trapped gas in my chest a good bit and use gas-x for it. I did have upper gi series that came back unremarkable outside of fatty liver. Blood work was normal outside of slightly elevated ast/alt, hep was negative.
My question is two fold.....could this just be a gallbladder attack and if so will it pass on its own? Thanks for your time and insight.
