Gastroenteritis, pain on applying pressure to specific regions on upper left abdomen. Cure?

Hello, About one week ago, I had gastroenteritis . I m better now, but when pressure is applied to a very specific region of my upper left abdomen , I feel a sharp pain. The spot is about the size of a golf ball and is located about 1.5 inch below my rib cage and 2 inches left of the sternum. The pain instantly stops when no pressure is applied. thanks

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you should take an antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg once daily before meals.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Do not miss meal.
3. Avoid emotional/mental stress.
4. Drink lot of pure water daily.
5. Avoid smoking/alcohol, if any.

If the problem persists get an Ultrasound of abdomen done and get yourself clinically examined .

I hope this is helpful to you..
