Symptom’s that happen on a daily basis Monday-Sunday

Morning 6.15

Get out of bed to go to the toilet, start to urinate and the pulsating starts in lower part of stomach, get back in bed for a short snooze, and start getting pain under my ribs and seems to transfer through to my back. Kidney area, get up getting changed pains get a little worse, take tablet and have breakfast and a drink of tea, then drive to work in pain from being crunched up in the car. Pain in the same area. Whilst at work I try to limit my sitting down to the minimum because of the pains, the pills only neutralise the acid for about 20min that why I have to chew spearmint all the time even in class, which I shouldn’t do. But it only last for a short time, also the ratdadine causes some pain whist being dissolve in to stomach it seem to dissolve in the centre of my rib cage. Still get the pain in my left hand chest area and still pulsating in to my left arm. And also the pulsating gets worse when I am sat on the toilet have a number two. Just seem to vertebrate through my body. Having to work at a computer at work for more than 10min have to get up a have a walk around.

Breathlessness still seems to happen, go for a walk and whist coming back, have to stop about six or seven time to catch my breath.

Some times when the pain is bad it goes in to my shoulder blades

I have been for all the test and had all the different tablets. Has anybody had a MRI scan for these pains that happen in my lower section? Doctors only seem interested in giving me pain killer that don’t seem to do anything. So wondering if MRI would be my best option

    Hi Mark,

    Has anyone sent you for an ECG, where they can check your heart just incase its anything more serious.  I don't mean to worry you but when you say that you get pain going from you chest to your left arm?  Maybe ask for one from your doctor justto rule it out?

    Hope that you feel better soon.

    Amanda.

      Hi Mark,

      Yes I would definitely try and get more tests done and get to the bottom of it.

    Jeez, this is the exact same daily routine as me...

    I dont know much to tell you either as i have gone to the doctors, and emergency already and they seem to only focus on the chest pains that where occuring at that time.

    When i try to use the washroom (#2) I get a sudden pain and hard pressure between my ribs just above my stomach that is unbearable lasting atleast 30 minutes after using the washroom. Is anyone else getting these ?
