Hi I have a dull achy pain beneath my left breast but it feels under my ribcage . I have had it for 2-3 months now. My GP checked it out about 6 weeks ago I intend to go see him again next week. I wondered if you can shed any light. I am 50, overweight (107kgs @ 160cms), don t have high blood pressure last time my cholesterol was checked (approx 3 yrs ago) it was fine. I have recently lost weight (approx 14kgs in total) am continuing with my eating plan. I used to have IBS heartburn almost daily but have recently changed my diet . I have cut out caffine, alcohol, wheat, limited dairy, no additives or preservatives where possible. I no longer eat low fat varieties of food but have full fat versions (without all the junk) but limit the amount. My IBS heartburn have gone I feel much better. I am still bugged by this pain though. I also feel as if I am not breathing using my whole lung (does that make sense?). When I sit up straight take a deep breath I do it slowly as sometimes it causes more pain. The pain is not severe, I can manage to live, pretty much as normal but it is annoying not improving. Could this be anything to do with the increased levels of saturated fat in my diet? By the way, I am not, nor ever have been a smoker. Any suggestions, gratefully received. Many thanks.
