I have had constant pain under my left rib into tummy and also in my mid back, its always hurting when i lay down, more often than not better when im sitting up, i went to A and E yesterday and had to virtually plead to get an xray, this came back all clear, im due to have a ultrasound scan,in a few days, is it ok to go back to another A and E as the pain isnt getting better, and could this be potentially serious condition

    Any pain under the rib that radiates to the back , could be serious. Most of the time it isn't though. If all test come back clear though or without answers , I would go to a cardiologist . Just to set your mind at ease. Especially if the pain continues.

    But , he's right. It could be gastritis. I have H Pylori. Today's my last day on the antibiotics, thank God. I had your pain plus other symptons. If that's it , it will only get worse without some kind of treatment. Good luck
