But for years, I get these stomach
flair ups. Out of nowhere, I get this intense pain
behind my rib cage on both sides. It then moves to my mid back, and sometimes up my chest and into my neck. That comes along with hot flashes, nausea and vomiting, and shakiness and being lightheaded. It can last anywhere from 1 minute to a couple of hours. When I say intense pain, that is not sufficient. There is no term to explain the pain. It's excruciating, bring me to my knees pain.
