Avatar n tn I saw my regular doctor about abdominal pains and chest pains with an added zyphoid process inflammation and poked out belly button.. He said that I have an umbilical hernia but not a serious one.. But didn't do an ultrasonic. He also prescribed what I'm told is the best acid indigestion medication available. I feel like the medication helps with the chest pain and sometimes with the zyphoid process inflammation but the abdominal pain isn't changing. I am a 32 year old male 5'10" 220 lbs.

The problem is I still have the band under the ribs with the bloated feeling have difficulty bending forward as i get a weird sensation where i have to straighten up quickly otherwise really uncomfortable sensation like something is moving upwards and i have to try and push it down but it doesnt work. Still have gastritis according to consultant and have to take ppi 2 daily total 40mg.
Avatar n tn I press hard and rub on the middle of my chest bone (directly above the zyphoid process - correct spelling?) to help it stop (not sure if this actually does anything or if it is just a placebo effect since that is what my mom would do for me when I was a kid, not knowing what else to do). The pain very slowly starts to subside then I can breathe again and it's all over. It only lasts about 30-50 sec but it is always scary.
Avatar n tn I am a male, 46yrs old 6ft and weigh 175 lbs. My pain comes and goes and has for about 6 months. It is not severe pain, but at times is more annoying than anything. It feels like there is something in there pinching me. I went to an internal med MD in July. He ran blood tests that all came back fine. He sent me to have an abdominal ultrasound which showed only "healthy" organs. No dilated bile duct, no gall stones, liver enzymes were in normal range.
