Just wondering if anyone else has felt this before....

Lately, about once or twice a week, I've had this severe, stabbing pain all around my torso, right below my bra line. It goes all the way through me, even making my back hurt. I am not sure if this is fiber/plan related or not. I don't eat a ton of raw veggies, and I've been on the plan since March, doing the same thing pretty much every day. I added up my fiber for two days that it happened, and it was only about 17-25 grams. It only happens late at night, usually right before bed.

It doesn't feel like heartburn, nor does it really feel like gas (too far up, I think). I can't get comfortable anyway I move, it just makes it worse. I've already got a Dr appt, just wondering if anyone else felt anything like this?.

Your question was: Nutrisystem and heart burn and bloating.

Yeah, that's what I figured. Just thought I'd ask here to see if anyone else felt anything like this. Thanks!..

I had that pain for almost 5 years- right under a rib in that area- felt like it was gonna bust thru the skin- awful pain. Nothing helped it. Sometimes last several days. Dr kept saying maybe constipation and tests did not show anything. But never tested for gallgladder- well I had a bad bout 8 mo ago on a motorcycle trip over a weekend- could barely drive- went to a specialist for gallbladders on my own. Long story short- only 18% functioning- took it out- quite a mess from 5 years of scar tissue from repeated attacks over the years.

Not saying that is what you have but I would get it checked...

So, I just wanted to thank you guys for posting about this. I went to the doctor and sure enough it was my gallbladder, so they are going to remove it next week..

I don't know if I would have ended up going to the Dr, or just putting it off if it wasn't for y'alls help. Thanks!..

I'm glad you were diagnosed and hope you're feeling much better now.

I knew as soon as I read your post what it was, and was very happy to see that it's been taken care of. It took me ten years to get mine diagnosed, but what a relief. The pain was awful...

Rachel, so glad you're getting it taken care of!!..

Comment #5

I am so glad you went to the dr. sounds like the same pain I had with gallbladder too..

Comment #6

And It Is Soooooo Nice Not To Have That Pain Anymore!!!..

Comment #7

Haha exactly! It's still slightly sore if I overdo it, but nothing like it used to get! And the good news is, even if I wanted to eat something fatty or greasy, it would make me sick, so it's a great diet aid. (for now, the Dr said eventually I'll probably be able to eat whatever I want)..

Comment #8

I sure feel your pain! Mine is coming out tomorrow morning! Good luck on your surgery!..

Comment #9

It sounds like it could be gallbladder related. Be sure to see your doc and let him know you've been losing weight. Good luck!..
