I'm a 19 year old female and I've had a strange discomfort in my left side just below/next to my ribs. It's been going on for approx 18 months but I usually only get it when I'm sat up, like driving or eating. I have been diagnosed with a small hiatus hernia, chronic gastritis and dyspepsia, but I feel this discomfort is unrelated to the symptoms of reflux I have been having, unless it's pain from the hernia which I don't think is likely. I also have strange heartburn, as soon as I lie flat I get instant relief which is usually the opposite to what most people get, but I don't think it's related to the discomfort only in the way that they both can be relieved by lying down. I'm wondering why my heartburn can only be relieved by lying down(prescription meds or antacids don't even make it go away) and what this discomfort is in my left side.
