,I have just inexplicably felt pain in the lower right

Resolved Question:

Hi,
I have just inexplicably felt pain in the lower right side of my rib cage (it hurts when i tense (almost like a stitch sensation) or when Iapply pressure). However, no pain occurs when breathing.
I can;t think if anything that could of caused it, apart from the awkward position I was in lying on the couch.
What could this be.
I do play lots of golf and go the gym lifting weights a few times a week, but had no pain from either!
Thanks

This is Dr. David

the pain can be from inflammation of your gall bladder

or from inflammation of your distal stomach or duodenum.

sometimes excessive stomach acid can cause inflammation of your distal stomach of duodenum.

alcohol and fatty foods can cause the gall bladder to be inflamed.
