    Hello Sandy, during my worst periods of gastritis trouble, my lower ribs and left ribs particularly can feel painful, including to touch-pressure, if that's what you mean. Maybe hiatal hernia can cause that pain too when it is involved with gastritis and similar stomach problems. The feeling tends to ease off in a day or several days depending on the severity of my gastritis set-back and/or oesophageal burn.

    Your body is under attack. It means you are likely to feel various aches and pains.

    Try to discover what is causing your heartburn by keeping a food diary.

    What medication are you using for it? If it persists see your doctor before it does permanent damage to your oesophagus.

    Hi sandy  first I am sorry for your loss , I said I am not a Doctor but I am a 

    coginitive behaviour graduate, once again I feel you have several problems 

    which is stress , but as said by you you have had flu bug and took to your bed for 2 weeks . Have you been examined by a GP this is a for most for you . But stress is a muscle straining on your body . I going too say you must relax . Food is a part of your wellness but the correct food , you do not need coffee , fried food ,wine, beer , chocolate , now you need fresh veg, herbal teas chamomile is a relax drink  try to bring your body into a relax state  , if you need to help the pain only take panadol tablets but only if you really need them.  Please go and see your Doctor he knows best .

    i wish you well and remember try to relax, your loss is a great loss and the only healer is time take each day as you can. If you need me to talk too I will watch out for your messages
