Pain Management

Pain Under Ribs

11/28/2007

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
