Still got pain!!!! ADVICE NEEDED

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello again.

If any you have seen my previous posts, then I am still having pain!!!!

I am 20 years old. I have a dull/crushing aching pain in the lower of my left rib, upper stomach. This can last for hours and come at any time. It makes me feel nervous sick when I get it and causes me to have hot and cold flushes. It also gives me pain right up my back and into my breasts. I also suffer my heart burn quite regularly. Sometimes it feels like there is bubbles in my left rib and I can feel them bubbling about. I have had to get up and leave work and restaurants on occasions as I can’t handle the pain.

My stomach infection which I had (gastritis) has been treated but I’m still having the pains. Also my blood tests for any liver, kidney or pancreas problems have came back fine. Waiting to see a different doctor about this.

Does anyone have any other ideas to as what this might be?!?!?!

    It sounds like you need to get a referral to a gastrologist? Not sure of the name, but a doctor to do a scope. I had this and I had trouble with digestion and the acid had caused barretts esophagus, which can be helped. You are young, so I doubt you would have barretts yet, but the stomach acid can cause problems. There are various stomach ailments they can find with a scope, and it doesnt hurt at all, they put you under a mild sedative. Good Luck, and please try this and let us know.
