User :   Hello,
For the past few months I have had pain in my left side underneath breast pain verys location but its a small dull pain sometimes bit sharper. I have also been burping alot and the pain seems to be relieved by that. when I eat i burp even more and gag as well. my stocmach doesnt hurt but food seems to be having a problme going down. I feel like once in a while I have a skip beat or something like that. I'm scared to eat now because of the constant burping and pain ive lost 10 pounds in 2 months. my primary gave me prevacid that help a bit then changed it to dexulant and that didnt help. Im not on nexium and that only helped as far a burping I dont need to do it so often. My pain is still there!I've had ekg of my heart 2 times its normal and on ultra sound thats normal also on endoscope testing for hpylori everything came out normal. what do I do now? Im 25 and I just want to live normal!
