Avatar n tn I have had pain and extreme tenderness in an area just below the sternum for about 2 years. It starts at the base of the sternum just where the stomach starts and seems to extend about two inches down towards the stomach. The pain seems to radiate into my left chest wall and causes a feeling of tightness. My doctor has told me to ignore it and it would go away. Easy for him to say right? Does anyone know what could cause this?
Avatar m tn I went for various blood tests, various psychiatrists, I went for a barium test, an ultrasound, all showing no signs of anything, But now more recently (every week to two weeks now) I will wake up feeling sick (pain below the v - in my chest, nauseous a little, tired, you name it) and then out of no where i will go numb, heat up, become very nauseous and hold back from gagging. and now it is always happening when im driving or out at work.
Avatar m tn I have dull stomach pain just below the sternum. It hurts worse when I'm getting hungry but scared to eat to much cause I been getting this feeling that I need to throw up everyone I eat a little too much. I used to be Abe to eat rice and pasta but now can't seem to digest it. It seems to get stuck around my upper rib area and then I eventually end up throwing my dinner up. On June 1st I weighed 203. As of today, October 19th, I weigh 162.
Avatar f tn Well yes, muscle strain, too much work load, bad posture etc can all cause pain in the spinal area below the shoulder blades. However do get a MRI of the area done to rule out any bone problem or pinched nerves. Gastric reflux and pancreatitis too can cause pain more near a point under the left shoulder blade. Omeprazole is a good drug to combat gastric reflux. Along with it you can try over the counter antacids. Avoid heavy meals.
Avatar f tn I have been having "attacks" of pain just below my ribs in the middle of my chest, wrapping around to my back. I feel like I cannot breathe and it feels like my ribs are compressing my lungs. I have taken pain killers and nothing seems to help. It can last anywhere from ten minutes to a couple hours.
Avatar n tn for the past one week i am feeling heavy pain on my left side just right side below the nipple. when i take deep breath then also it hurts.
2181319 tn?1337741409 I've been experiencing a sharp burning pain located just below my sternum on both side of my chest. The pain then expands through my chest and and middle/upper back, neck and shoulder areas. When this happens, i can't slump over or curl up (which is my normal response to pain), because the pain just intensifys. It forces my to sit straight, when i do that, i get extremely dizzy and sick. After about 10-15 minutes the pain begins to fade away. what could be causing this?
Avatar f tn i thought there was something wrong w me i asked the dr but nothing can be done the baby is just stretching! they told me to massage my stomach all around to move the baby out or lie in a recliner and stretch out real good!
Avatar n tn Hi All, For about 5 months now I've been baraged by a series of different symptoms (these have been getting worse), including dizziness, stomach pain, chest pain, shortness of breath and feeling like I'm going to faint. I feel dizzy all day. Get stomach (feels like acid reflux) and chest pains that worsen at night and sometimes feel like I'm going to faint, most often when I'm out. I feel specially bad around meal times, most often ~20 minutes after I finish eating dinner.
Avatar f tn I have fibrocystic breast and even at the very top of my chest just below the collar bone it hurts and it is fibrocystic breast. It is very tender to the touch. But does it hurt without touching it, like inside your bones? If so, you can get a bone scan to make sure there is nothing going on. I have had one and it can't hurt. They may take a Xray first instead of doing the bone scan. GERD is more in the stomach, or esophagus or in the chest area sometimes. It is not usually felt in the bone.
Avatar n tn Can the hernia and/or weak valve cause chest pain located just below the left breast or in between the breasts? The pain is sometimes very sharp, and it scares me. I find that I can make the pain go away if I stand up straight, or push on my chest. Has anybody else had this problem? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Went for an ultrasound today and noticed strange chest pain when they had me hold my breath. It only happens when I hold my breath and I am laying on my right side, and the chest pain is about an inch to the right of my left nipple. Like a stab that intensifies the longer I hold my breath. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn ) the docs keep putting it down to anxiety or stress (the chest pains) and the stomach pains down to IBS. The stomach pains can be severe as can the chest pains, i've been taking Colofac 135mg three times a day for the stomach lately, it is always taken before meals which to be fair helps a little (dulls the pain) but it is still there. and doesn't go completely. The chest pains are slowly less painful but again still there.
Avatar n tn Gastrointestinal causes of chest pain include reflux (acid from the stomach washing back into the esophagus), gallstones, esophageal spasm, esophageal rupture, varicose veins of the esophagus, strictures of the esophagus, tumors of the esophagus and other less common GI problems. Pulmonary (lung) causes include pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, pneumothorax, pleuritis and bleb rupture.
Avatar n tn i just want to tell u that i have had a viral infection for 5 to 6 weeks and now i am on prilosec and today i have lower right stomach pains is it gas.
Avatar f tn I very frequently, even with medication, get agonizing pain right below my sternum. I suffered with this pain for 4 days straight and then it stopped. This time, after the pain that I have become accustom to stopped, I began having pain in the lower rib cage area that extended like a band around my body. I even have pain in my back (between shoulder blades and in shoulder blades). The pain alternates as gnawing & aching to sharp & stabbing (mostly on the right side).
Avatar m tn For the past 3-4 months I've been getting pain in my stomach regin...and just below/under my right rib. I've had all the blood test and they've come back completely normal. I'm having an ultrasound on tuesday next week. I've VERY worried! The pain in getting worse and worse. When I push down in that area it's very tender. My bowel movement have be terrible for about a year now. I was diagnosed with IBS earlier this year and have adominal pains and lower back pains.
Avatar n tn Last week fatty foods, like french fries and potato chips (just a few!) gave me pain in my right side so bad I thought I tore a muscle. The pain was to the right under my ribs and I noticed I had a ton of trapped gas (it seemed) but no more diarrhea, it just seemed to get stuck there and the pain was constant, when I moved, breathed, and worse when I ate. I went to the doc and he ruled out pancreas trouble and did bloodwork, (normal) and said I could have a stone lodged in the main bile duct.
Avatar n tn Dull, gnawing stomach pain that comes and goes. The pain is often worse when the stomach is empty and goes away after eating. You may also have indigestion, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, gas, and dark stools. Possible Causes: *Stomach ulcer (peptic ulcer) *Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) Action to Take: Take an antacid or acetaminophen if necessary, but avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Don't drink alcohol or smoke.

Avatar n tn I always have a tightness below my ribs at the begining of my stomach. I have had an EKG, Strees test and 24hr BP monitor and chest xray all showing normal and the doc thinks we can rule out the heart and is now going down the route of GERD. Is it safe to rule out the heart as I stll get pains and this above all worries me. I am 32 3 months without smoking and a little over weight. Thanks you for your input.
Avatar m tn I then developed an almost constant gurgling in my stomach. Below the breast bone on my left side in the high abdomen. The next day I wanted to try flush my system out, So I drank a lot of water about a gallon and a half throughout the entire day. The next morning I woke up went to the bathroom and didn't have diarrhea. It was still very soft and yellowish. I went to the doctor's that day, and he checked everything out.
8216878 tn?1403886512 The top of my stomach hurts like its my chest also I feel like I'm going to be sick. Its hard to breath and painful. Also the top of my back below my shoulders are killing me. Im not having contractions so I didnt want to go to the hospital but I cant sleep and im dying nothing is releiving the pain. Anyone else have similar pain? Im 39 weeks and have been having pre labor signs but nothing serious.
Avatar n tn Has anybody else out there experienced a pain in the chest area and then felt some gas shift in your abdomin? I really think my pain is from gas and not my heart and was curious if anybody else had similiar symptoms.
Avatar f tn I awoke in the middle of my sleep feeling like I was being stabbed in the center of my chest below my ribs. the pain is pretty bad about an 8! It is coming in spasms and feels like it moves from the top of my chest(directly below the middle of my ribcage) down the middle of my abdomin. I took tums hoping it was an acid reflux issue but the pain has persisted. I'm a little worried that it is heart related. I also have been having some stomach issues for a while now.
