    Chest pain can be caused by indigestion. You could try coming off omeprazole to see if the rib pain goes away and then you will know whether the PPI cause your pain. Another possibility is gastritis which can also cause rib cage pain.

    Hi. I would suggest something different which is costochondritis which is inflammation if the cartilage and often missed. I would ask about that when seeing my gp. I have suffered IBS type symptoms and costochondritis and have an auto immune disease. I din't actually have IBS when it was finally diagnosed properly I have gastritis which is inflammation of the stomach lining. Ask for a gastroscopy to get a proper diagnosis. Often IBS is bandied around without proper diagnostic tests being done. Am often suspicious of it as a diagnosis. If you are not reacting to the medication you are mentioning then look further for an answer. Good luck.

    Hi Tommy, I think you need to explain this to a health professional like your doctor. We can only guess what this is. It could realistically be anything. Good luck.
