What Causes Pain Under The Lower Right Ribs?
Hello doctor, I want to ask, Why have I been in the lower right chest in the past few days, precisely near the lower right rib cage. What I feel is very painful when I take a deep breath, pain when laughing, pain when I will burp, pain when I want to sneeze (because when sneezing always starts breathing) it’s been almost a week I can’t sneeze because of this pain. Is it because of muscle, or what? And how to treat it. thank you
Hello Niken, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Pain at the bottom of the right rib can be caused by several conditions, including:
Muscle strain in the chest or right abdomen (for example due to injury, misplaced at work or during sports) Fracture / fracture of the ribs Side stitch or pain felt under the ribs (usually the right) during exercise due to diaphragmatic spasm Rupture / tear in the diaphragm Disorders of the gallbladder (inflammation, infection, stones, etc.) Pancreatitis Disorders of the liver (liver abscess) Disorders of the lungs, such as pleurisy, pneumonia, lung abscess, etc. If indeed the pain is very disturbing and does not disappear by itself, you should You check with your doctor so that further evaluation can be done to find the cause. Each of the causes mentioned above will have other characteristic symptoms that will be explored again when your doctor examines you directly later and can also be distinguished from certain physical examinations. Sometimes it is also necessary to be able to help support the diagnosis.
For now, you can take painkillers such as paracetamol to help reduce the pain you feel. You can also help reduce pain when you sneeze or cough by holding a pillow in your chest when you cough or sneeze.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
