Just below my ribs I keep having a pain. It is on and off and nothing that I know of causes the pain. It doesn't matter what I eat, drink or whatever. It just suddenly happens. When I does happen it can be very sharp. their is no point in taking any pain killers because it only lasts for a few minutes, but they can really hurt when I get them!?

My stomach has been hurting on and off making weird noises when im not hungry at times my stomach gets hot but not to the point when it hurts. But also my gum is grown over my wisdom tooth and i've researched about it and it said gum produces bacteria. Is it possible that i could have swallowed it?

Hello Anonymous,

I really don't understand what you mean by your stomach gets hot. Is the skin hot to the touch? Or do you have a burning sensation in your stomach area?

Intermittent stomach pain must be discussed with and evaluated by your primary care physician.

You need to have that affected wisdom tooth looked at by your dentist as soon as possible.

Sounds like you may have a problem involving your gallbladder. You need a physical examination and an ultrasound.

Keep us posted,

It is more important to determine the cause of the pain and correct the underlying problem.

Is the pain felt on the right or left side? Is it felt more toward your back or in the front?  With answers to these two questions, it can be determined which organs are affected.

Any abnormalities, such as your intermittent but sudden and sharp pain, is a matter of concern and needs to be physically evaluated.

With more information, I may be able to give you possible causes.

The pain is mainly on theright hand side, but then other times it can be in the middle or left, but its mainly on the right side. The pain is also towards to the front.
