I have read your query. It seems a bit ambiguous to me. If my presumption is wrong, please let me know so that I can correct during my reply.

I see that you have pain on the left side and feeling dizzy too. The pain is right below the rib cage.

It seems like costochondritis to me with a probable muscle sprain in the upper abdomen. Did you do heavy weight lifting recently? The colonoscopy, CT scan and the tube down your throat does not seem to be related to your current problem.

Do you have an ultrasound of the abdomen done? I would like to know where exactly your pain is - the location. And, how long is the duration of this pain?

Meanwhile, continue to take aciphex.

Please get back to me with more details, we shall discuss further.
