Gas pain upper back

Common Questions and Answers about Gas pain upper back

gas

Dear belcher: There is definetly a connection between gas and skipped beats The upper part of the heart and parts of the gut are both innervated by branches of the vagus nerve. When you eat certain foods, especially very seasoned ones,there is sudden hyperfunction of the vagus nerve to stimulate movement of the stomach and gut and this inderectly acts on the heart,producing hyperexcitability and skipped beats called atrial premature contractions or APCs.
hi I an 24 years male i have an upper back pain on right side which extends to right shoulder and right hand .The pain is not always and is very mild i a can do all my daily works.i am a mild smoker for past 3 years.there is a persistent cough problem.there are no signs of chest pain.what could be the possible cause.is it due to smoking?..
I have the same problem sometimes, its most likely gas pain. When I need to relieve gas pain in my chest and upper back I drink about 2-3oz of lemon juice in a glass of water and take a few gas x. It helps me a lot. Try not to drink carbonated beverages after 6pm, and drink the lemon water after dinner and before bed to help relieve the pain all night long, It works wonders for me.
Just how severe can gas pain be? Can it hurt in your chest, upper back, ribcage, and make you feel short of breath? I am really scared that something is wrong with me. I don't have money or insurance.
but still i am facing with back pain/constipation/gas trouble. Last 6 months i am into a special project at job which involves continuos working on computers for hours..this has made me live without any execise for last 6 months.Also I had real bad chest congestion which continued for months after which I stopped my habit of smoking and through that chest problems have gone 90%, but still there is a slight muscular pain around my chest.
About 1 month ago I began having some pain, mostly while laying down, that was somewhat similiar to the pain that I had with my diseased gallbladder. While not as severe, the pain is mostly in the upper center stomache region with some pain passing through my back. This has not occurred every night, maybe 6 times in a month. Last couple of nights have been worse with little sleep, pain more constant and not relieved with antacids. I also have had extreme flatuance with this latest episode.
i heard abt lower back pain. but is this possible to having upper back pain n sides back pain during pregnancy or because of pregnancy? n sometimes specialy when i m on bed i feel difficulty in breath. for 2 weeks i feel all the time tired. gastric problem is the common problem in pregnancy or should i see gastro doctor? i dont have constipation ( except sometimes) or nauses. but this gas is killing me!!!!!! i m 18 week pregnant and 27 yr old. this is my first pregnancy.
It's been 5 year I've had upper back pain near shoulders. Just to sit for about 5 min. without lean on something makes my back hurts. I also have belching,bloating,flatulence and headache too. Also i feel my stamina is decreasing too as when jogging or running, I can only do it much less(getting fatigue faster) than before. I've visited several doctor and had MRI for my head and back, but the result says nothing wrong. I also had x-ray and the result says I have GERD.
I have noticed that since I have been pregnant, a few hours after eating, I would get this deep dull, very painful pain in my upper back. It is a very intense pain, and walking helps. Also, I noticed a hot shower hitting my back helped a lot. It went away then came back 2 years later with the next baby, and now, I noticed that sometimes it comes back if I don't get my three full meals, for ex. if I eat once a day, I will get gas pains. Antacids don't help right away at that moment.
Anyways, I also have high upper right side and high middle belly pain! My doctor said without even looking at my back or belly that it was gas pain in my belly and a pinched nerve in my back.. they scheduled an app. for 3 weeks from now when I told them. I was in so much pain that I had to call then to assk them what was going on. After telling a different doctor what my symptoms were they scheduled me for an immediate ultra sound to check my gallbladder.
Now today, the discomfort in my upper abdomen and the upper GI gas is worse than usual. Again, the pain isnt severe or sharp. It feels some what broad. Sometimes in direct center of my upper abdomen, sometimes a bit left or right or across the entire area. Right now, its direct center and a bit more intense than it has been. and it's usually worse after I eat or try to have a bowel movent. Now for a brief history: 10 years ago I had a battle with non-hodgkins lymphoma.
But I swear, it's the same symptoms I read and talked to others about the gallbladder, just it's on the left, upper back, under shoulder blade, continuing around to the front and closing in on my chest. Can't take deep breaths, lift my arms above my head or reach down.

The pain is so intense that prescribed pain killers only put me to sleep but doesn't erase the pain. Burping doesn't help and passing gas relieves little pain and the pain feels like muscle spasms. I can barely move or sit upright when in pain. Is this more than just trapped gas? I have no appetite but must eat because of my diabetes.
It started on the right side of my chest and has migrated towards the center. I also have a dull ache in my upper back (could or could not be related). Im 23 years old in the military, and do extensive cardio on a daily basis, i have never experienced any problems with my heart, so I dont think its heart attack symptoms, but then again i know nothing about medical stuff :P Any help would be greatly appreciated!
to do some counselling on here - I am sorry you have had no replies as yet. My husband has had some quite serious problems with gas and upper abdominal pain, using about a half litre bottle of Gaviscon a month, and being up 3/4 times a night. For some inexplicable reason, he decided to take himself off almost all dairy products about 6 months ago, and he hasn't needed to use Gaviscon since then and sleeps the night through. He only has 2% milk in tea.
I started out with a sore throat, headache,, gas, nausea, back pain upper right side.I thought that I had a severe sore throat. The Dr. prescribed antibiotics(cefuroxime). I felt worse(stomach) and stopped the medication. I had acid reflux problems three years ago and was on medication,so the Dr. thought it might be acid reflux..He prescribed Nexium(once a day) and Ranitidine (twice a day). I have been on this medication for a week. I still have bloating and gas attacks with some back pain.
I am 53 and lately have started experiencing what feels like gas and bloating pain just below my sternum- It is like what I have eaten is taking along time to travel down to my stomach. I have had my gallbladder out about 21 years ago- I am on thyroid medicine and also on vicodin for lower back pain- It comes and goes and sometimes when I am laying down, it causes difficulties in breathing for a short period of time. Any clue as to what this could be.
They suggested a chiropractor and deep tissue therapist as the pain had gone around to my lower back on the right. Where's the gastro piece? I have also had increased gas, less frequent bowel movements, stomach gas that makes so much noise I am afraid my cube mates will hear when I stand next to them and foul smelling feces. I am embarrassed to talk w/ others and wonder if I am imagining things?
I've been getting some pain the back, upper area, just under the bra line and sometimes higher. I'm wondering if it's gastro-related or not?
