Pain Management

Pain Under Ribs



I am 15 years old and I have been having frequent mild pains on my right side under my ribs. I have been to the doctor and he sent me to get a abdominal ultrasound. I did that and the results came out normal. Do you have any idea what this could be?


Especially due to your young age, this could be various things. It is probably musculoskeletal in nature. I advise you to see a sport medicine doctor or your primary care physician.
