hi, im new here. 3 days ago i started to get a dull pain on top of stomach then spread to the left. Pain got worse. So bad. Felt it on my back when the pain hit its peak. Everthing i eat i throw back up. I tried to get a doctors appointment today but there was none left. Anyone know what it could be?

    Left side? go to doctor and have your heart checked or you can try antacid and gas pills to see if it lets up. My son had this and it was gastritis and acid reflux. BUT, This should not be taken lightly no matter if it goes away or not. Go to emergency room. they can quickly check through an EKG right there. This happened to me but I didnt throw up. They kept me overnight and did tests. One more test to go. So far heart is good but you never wait, this is a symptom. Good luck and please dont wait.

    why wont you go to emergency room. pain that bad is not normal. I hope you will consider this. It could be a situation that they could have helped before it gets worse.

    coudl be food poisoning?  the left is where the stomach is....heading that way; there is such a thing as pain being in an area not affected;.. did you take any antibiotics? If not 'garlic' is akin to penicilin adn you can take some of that whilst you try to get yoru GP appointment..  Try eating some anti-inflammatory foods with water in them (beetroot, red grapes)  to keep hydrated. hope you feel better soon.smile

    Olivia phone the surgery first thing in the morning and say its an emergency and you have intense pain in your left side of chest and back, that should make the receoptionist fit you in.

      Endoscopy is not bad at all. I have barretts esophagus. Thank goodness they can do these. It helped stop me getting cancer. Blood tests can find alot. You dont look when they take it. smile. Good luck to you. Its a scary thing when you dont know whats wrong. Until they figure it out, you stay on them. Pain is never normal. Something is causing ut. Even as minor as a pulled muscle puts a persons mind at ease. So nice to see so many supporting you with tips and ideas. I go again tuesday to see why i have had nausea for almost a month. Dont stop until you find answers.

    My blood test is wednesday morning. And she gave me Omeprazole to take once a day. I have to be mega carful what i eat too. High fibre foods and low fat dairy. If i have fatty foods it triggers it like crazy. I dont know when the endoscopy will be. Waiting for an appointment through the post.

    I will come back and update.

      Olivia; please check out the liver; look up fatty liver disease; which would perhaps explain the fatty foods (liver processes fat and when it gets a build up you can experience problems).

      There are some vitamns you can take for liverhealth and also eat garlic (akin to penicillin/anti-oxidant).  The liver is good at repairing itself. Omeprazole is good ; as it will assist if you hae bacteria/ ulcer..

      however also look up glutamine tablets in reference to the liver issue. And drink some apple juice. smile
