I have a question? I have a lumbar curve and I was wondering if anyone knew if scoliosis can affect the pelvis? Apart from misalinging it, does it have anything to do with a stabbing pain I feel on the right side of my pelvis? Has anyone experienced this before? Or pain just below my right ribcage? Has anyone felt this?

Hi Carly...

Is the pain in the front? Right under the ribs on the right side is your liver.

This could be way off base, but my youngest daughter had really bad pain on her right side just below her ribcage, as well as radiating near her pelvis, and it turned out to be her appendix. Her's was actually tucked up the opposite direction of where it ordinarily should be, and it took them hours before they could confirm it. She had to have emergency surgery New Year's Eve of last year.

Probably not your situation, but thought I'd mention it just as another possibility to keep on the back burner,.. even if it is unlikely.

Doesn't Gall Bladder pain give off stabbing pain under the ribcage on the right side also?? My g/f was suspected of that, but then it turned out to be Pleuresy of all things...

It could be so many different things, I think if it were me, I'd make an appt. with your doctor to figure out what it is. It could be no big deal, or it could end up being something serious,.. or even somewhere in between.

Good luck and hope you feel better! Let us know what you find out, k? (((hugs)))

Hi, thanks for all your replies. I actually went to my doctor 2 days ago, and guess what? The pain that I was having for two months now, turned out to be a ruptured cyst! I've never had that happening before. That's the pain in my pelvis. I'm still getting pain below my ribcage but they have said nothing of this...

I experience back pain all the time and usually when I do alot of walking (2 miles and/or more) my hips/pelvis starts to hurt too, feels like it is grinding.

it really depends what part the pain is
