Hello everyone!

Im experiencing pain throughout the right side of my torso and not sure exactly what it is. Last night I went to bed with what felt like a knife under my shoulder blade. Today I woke up with

a sharp pain in my lower right abdomen that dulls out until I move, another pang just a couple inches above that, along with a shoulder blade pain and a stiff, painful mid back section.

All of the pain consists to the right side. Not sure if this is Lyme or Candida or possibly the biproduct of the medication I'm taking. Moving bowels has been extremely difficult for a week now as well. Not sure if that has anything to do with it!

It's not constipation pains bc I am going to the bathroom, it's just a struggle. And usually that pain for me is in different locations.

I'm worried about my gallbladder. Could that be the source?

Thank you!

Right side is gallbladder. What meds are you on? Are you drinking enough water? Drink two glasses of water every morning when you wake up (it will help).

I'm taking Plaquenil, azithromycin, IV Rocephin, Flagyl, omnicef, and diflucan.

I drink water all day long, mainly water with lemon. What's strange is that when the pain hits me, that side of my back gets totally stiff

That's a lot of meds. Maybe your kidneys are not happy?

That is a lot of medicine. It sounds like your gallbaldder and kidneys are speaking to you. You might call your lyme doc tomorrow morning. One or more of your meds might not be agreeing with you (too much for you).

I think I'm going to have to give him a call.

Now the pain has subsided but now I'm super bloated, I can't move my bowels, I can't even pass gas! Ugh! My stomach has been making these ridiculous gurgling/ sloshing noises for

hours now. What is going on?! My right side back is do stiff. I'm so unconfortable and nothing is giving me relief

I get these pains too. But I always get that for 2 weeks in a month and then it calms down. I had stomach checked and said its all fine.

My pain happens on the right side beginning at the end of rib cage.

May God Bless you, answer your prayers, relieve you of your pain and make you stronger than what you are today. Ameen.

IDK your gender or other important details. Could it be pain associated with ovulation? This pain occurs 2 weeks after your period. Ladies usually ovulate more frequently on one side.

Might want to consider Ursodiol or milk thistle to keep the liver and gallbladder clear.
