left side stomach pain and mid back pain, PLEASE HELP

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone,

Please help me

Has anyone experienced this, what was the outcome for them?

My symptoms started with shoulder pain and upper back pain 6 months ago.

I have now noticed pain in the left side of my stomach, close to my ribs and under my left rib cage which usually comes on after I have had something to eat. Sometimes it is not related to food

Also recently, I have left sided mid back pain when I eat. I just have to put food in my mouth and it starts. It feels as though my back is digesting the food.

I have had lots of test and everything came back normal.

Please help!

    Did you go for an endoscopy? It sounds a bit like gastritis. I've been dealing with upper abdominal discomfort for some months now and sometimes, it radiates to my back on the right side. I recommend getting checked by your GP or a GI specialist maybe.

    I too started with RUQ pain and now its in my stomach and radiates to my back right up my spine. I have been prescribed high dose Omeprazole and am waiting for a gastroscopy. Some days mine goes away and i think yippee its gone and then the next its back again. Its really annoying.

      My thoughts exactly! Sometimes it goes away and I feel better only for it to return again. It's really annoying tbh
