Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni
I’m 39 years old (lady). Recently ate my lunch late (i guess wind in stomach) which caused me vomiting at night (only 1 time) and the next day when I cough, my right side (back part) ribs very painful. May I know is there anything serious about my condition now? Do I need to refer to my panel doctor immediately?
Greetings! Thank you for your question.
Due to the limited information given by you, I can only provide you with common causes of back rib pain.
I would advise you to monitor for any progression of this rib pain. Otherwise, this might not be a serious condition if it occurs once without other symptoms to back up a more concerning diagnosis. However, you may get online consultations with our doctors here for medical advice and treatments. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
