Pain in both sides of rib cage. - July 24th 2017, 11:55 PM

So I've been to the ER twice and they have run multiple tests and they cannot find what is causing me pain in either of my sides. They did a CT scan which showed enlarged lymph nodes in my stomach last night. This could be indicative of a stomach virus or something, they told me to see my family doctor. BUT I have no symptoms of a stomach virus and this pain has been going on for a few weeks now. I just don't get it.

Has anyone else had pain before in their ribs? I had my gallbladder removed last Thanksgiving so it's not that and all of my blood work results and scans came back clear except for the enlarged lymph nodes. I'm doing some research into this but have come up with nothing so far, so I can come up with questions to ask my family doctor when they call me back with an appointment.

1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

I've had pains in my stomach in the past, which were diagnosed as developing ulcers. I have been taking medication for that since about 2014, and the stomach pains are virtually non-existent these days.

I would definitely stick to the questions you have prepared to ask your family doctor. The thing with researching online is that you might get misguided information, which I am sure you know about. I don't want to give any examples, but we all have heard of the "horror stories" of misdiagnoses from those supposedly legit medical websites. I hope the family doctor gets back to you soon and you are able to secure an appointment with them. Let us know how it goes!
