Looking in all the wrong places

by Margaret Sobus

I have been suffering after eating with a bulge right under my right ribcage. The pain goes all the way to my back and I was sure it was gall bladder. My doctor had an ultra sound taken and it showed my gall bladder was normal. Today for some reason I am wondering if I have an aneurysm. I have already had an ulcer rupture in my duodeum (small intestine. and it was soooo painful. I am on 7.5 mg of prednisone for PMR.

The swelling comes right after I eat and I must lie flat for a while to get relief from the pain. Sometimes my back feels too swollen to lie on my back. Either I am learning to live with it or it is getting better. I have an appt. with another doctor on Monday and Hope I get some idea what it is.
