Pain on the left side of abdomen after food poisoning

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been having persistent pain on my upper left side , under the ribs radiating to the back, after I suffered food poisoning 1 week ago. I have been constipated and very bloated. Passing gas has also been an issue.

I do not know what to do to relieve the bloating.

I do not think this has anything to do with my GERD or hiatal hernia. Or does it?

The pain is dull but always in one spot.

What exams must I require from the doctor?
