About 13 months ago I lifted a cooker into my kitchen,as soon as I put it down there was a sharp,heavy pain in my chest.I've never felt anything like it before.For some stupid reason I left it 2 months before seeing a GP,despite the pain.They kept fobbing me off saying it was a just a case of a strained muscle in the chest.The pain would not stop and I kept going back and fore the GP's.After 3 months they did a stool sample and I was told I had a H.Pylori onfection.So I did the triple treamtent for 7 days.After the pain just would not let up.So the GP over time sent me for some blood tests (all cler) heart tests (All came back OK) and an Ultrasound for gallstones (again all clear) I was still taking omperazole as the "Injury" had given me brutal reflux issues.The constant pain,vomiting and general rubbishness I felt was getting me down.After 10 months I finally got them to refer me too a Gastro expert (Still waiting for an appointment!) Anyways I'll right the pains I have an maybe someone can help me.
-Pain in upper left abdominal area that very rarely goes away.And can sometimes make it feel like someone is pulling the left side of my body down.
- The pain radiates and shoots too my neck/back/arms (mainly the left arm)
- Vomiting and generally struggling to keep food/drink down.
- Headaches/feeling woozy
- Random shortness of breath
- Random sweats
- Stomach pains
- Pain in the middle of my chest (Think it's my ospheagus)
- Sometimes feel like something is stuck in my throat
I've had a sneaky feeling it might be a hernia but the GP has said it probably isn't.I know some of these symptoms are because of reflux and the meds.But I'm desperate to know what the left abdominal pain is.........
