    Default Help diagnose me

    Ok so I need help- obviously im not trying to self diagnose myself but im trying to find if other people have experienced the same and what their outcome was.

    I've had really bad pain under my right ribs (upper right quadrant pain) thats really bad under my right shoulder blade as well.
    I've easily had it for over a month. It can be worse on some days and then not as bad on others.

    Ive had a million blood tests every week and nothing indicates that anything is wrong with liver or gallbladder.
    I am however having an ultrasound on them on tuesday to see.

    I have low blood pressure and no protien in urine.

    My poo (sorry tmi!) Is black but ive been told this is just because of the iron tablets im taking (was anemic)

    Had cholestasis in previous pregnancy- but so far not in this one.

    Just at a point now where I am over not knowing and having no answers and was hoping maybe someone experienced the same?

    Ok this sounds like it would be to simple but I had a horrible pain sort of below my ribs and into my shoulder blade on the left side in both my last two pregnancies and it was from a muscle in my back. The Dr reached around and slightly pushed on the offending spot when I was laying on my back and there was no mistaking it was the problem. She referred me to physio but I never got in before DD was born and the pain went away a couple of days after that.

    Interesting, never thought that it could be the rib itself. Thanks will ask the doctor if he thinks this could be the case

    Ive been thinking it could be muscle but have been to a chiro and osteopath and both haven't been able to cure my pain

    I have had the same but on my left side. How far along are you? I'm 31 weeks and it went away yesterday after nearly 2 weeks of it coming pretty much after lunch everyday. I'm pretty sure my bub has moved as I started doing exercises to get him/her anterior and since doing them I felt a huge shift in bubs yesterday and haven't had any pain since. Not saying it's the same as you just sounded so similar to what I was having.

    37 weeks, and it does seem to feel worse after food- especially at night

I don't have a clue how it happened and it fixed itself all of a sudden too (after about 4 days).
    Wow thats crazy, I honestly haven't heard of that before in pregnancy, but can see how it can happen. Thanks for posting!

    I think cholestasis.
    It can take a couple of weeks for bloods to reflect symptoms

    Gallbladder attacks. Ask for a ultrasound on your gallbladder to check for stones. You may need your gallbladder out
