spasm pain

I have pain and spasms under my right rib cage that are almost unbearable. I can barely move at times, like when standing up or using the muscles in that area. I could be completely still and all of the sudden get a spasm, or a feeling that something is tightening terribly, and then it releases....but its hard to even move at all at times. This has happened before and went away within a couple of days, but the pain is so bad I am worried of what this may be.

Have your doctor check your gallbladder. Sounds like the pain I was having when my gallbladder quit.

Agree with tdavidson, sounds like gallbladder problems; attacks.  I would recommend an US of the gallbladder and a HIDA scan.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The pain of this intensity coming spasmodically could be due to gall stones, infection in gall bladder, liver abscess or an abscess under the diaphragm. A CT scan of the upper abdomen should be done immediately. The other possibility is intestinal spam due to celiac disease or Crohn’s disease or due to IBS. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
