Posted , 6 users are following.

24/7 The left side of my stomach (the area around my ribs/spleen basically below my armpit all the way down to the bottom of my stomach. the whole left side) I rate it ten out of ten pain and can not do anything. I am also nautious as well all day everyday. this has been going on for weeks. i have trouble p*****g, number two, always feel constipated and never have an appetite really. specialist did endoscopy and said no ulcers looked a little red but fine. Docs dont really know where to go from here. I am in so much pain and feel like throwing up all the time and i dont know how to fix this bc no one knows what it is. does anyone ever felt anything like this before? or know how to help with it. its just a dull aching pain that sometimes feels sharp and super painful around my chest to. but the lower left side of my stomach is constantly hurting all the time. I quit drinking and smoke cigarettes. didnt help/. soemtimes i feel like bubbles rising in my chest.

    Hi it does sound a bit like trapped wind. Try fibogel for constipation relief. Have you made any changes to your diet? Try healthier version, low in spices, also take probiotics from health shops or plain yogert with live culture. Drink more water. Keep a food diary and take multivitamins. That little redness in the stomach indicates a beginning of mild ulcer or soreness so it gives a plenty of reason to try and look after your gut. I hope I dont sound too mumsy. Hope you feel better soon.

    Has IBS been mentioned which doesn't show on any test? Ask your doctor for an anti spasmodic and try s food diary. Have you noticed if stress sets it off?

    I also have pain in the upper left abdomen, and this is going into 5 years now, It hit me suddenly in March of 2016 out of nowhere, never had anything like it before. It has a set pattern, it would hit in certain months and it has 3 phases. Months were Dec, March, June,Sept & Oct. Each one lasting 6-8 weeks. Beginning phase is bowel purging, chills, headache and neck pain, feeling very very unwell, and nausea,that increases in intensity , then going into phase 2-acute phase of severe upper left ab pain, into the mid spine and across the left ribs, it is now also going across the right ribs as well. The nausea is very intense but little throwing up, Pain is very severe, Eating is hard, any food seems to add pressure and adds to the severe pain, many days I eat nothing or drink ensure. Just try to stay hydrated. I feel very unwell, total exhaustion,shaking, chin chatters, not from cold or anxiety, brain dead/fog, feel almost autistic...in my own world.., hard to even carry on a conversation, at times my legs feel weak and shaking and it is hard to walk, Neurological symptoms. I never think I will survive the acute phase, I feel like I will die. The final stage, recovery is a real struggle, it is very, very slow and I feel very unwell, I dont feel like doing anything at all, just lay there watch TV or sleeping. For the first 4 1/2 years I would go into remission after each 6-8 week episode, and have a few weeks of feeling perfectly fine. Now I do get a bit better but never 100% any more. This has been for the last 6 months or so. I have been mainly home bound since Sept 2019. I have done endoscope, treated H. pylori, now gone, colonoscopy, CT scans with dye, ultra sounds.Been in the hospital several times for 6-10 days at a time with it in the past, but do all I can to treat it at home. The ER docs are idiots when it comes to any kind of pain. I am doing the full exome dna test now, awaiting those results, most docs think it is porphyria or med. fever at first, but so far both neg. I am as you can imagine very desperate for an answer, My case is now live on crowd med, case name is Xavier for anyone who is a doc/or has something like this... and may have some idea of what this is, please go to the site and read my details. thanks !!!
