Hello, i hope you can help me with what this is. For the last 4 days my stomach has been SO bloated! And the sides of my stomach, below my ribs feel achy. So does my back. Its not painful but im quite slim and this uncomfortable bloating isnt normal for me. Ive recently had ECG s and found abnormal ECG. But said it might be normal for me. The reason for that was i was gettin chest pain . They told me its costochondritis & anxiety . Im not anxious! Still get chest pain and shoulder blade pain. But this bloating is new. Im only 23/ female and quite healthy. With a good diet. BUt i do smoke. This bloating is very uncomfortable, also (Ahem..) Ive been a little gassy lately and a bit constipated. Is there anything i can do to relieve it. Scared it might be hernia, ulcer or worse. Please Help :(
At present these symptoms are likely due to acid peptic disease and gastritis.
But I wonder as your ECG is abnormal and you are 23 years and even then they say you are normal.
Even it is costo chondritis and pain is due to gastritis your pain should be re evaluated.
Consult physician and discuss about above points.

hi, my stomach is bloated and swollen to the point that I feel pregnant it pushes up under my ribs and hurts. also I have back pain like strained muscles but I haven t done anything. it s not my lower stomach. I ate a Caesar salad that I bought at Costco Saturday, and Saturday night my stomach hurt severely and I had a lot of back pain. of course I had no idea what had caused it. but the next day I had another salad, it came with 4 bowls, and again my stomach was hurting. so I didn t have anything the day after that. then Tuesday I had another for lunch and by dinner I was vomiting and back to severe stomach pain and a back ache. I threw the last bowl away but now I m left with back pain and a swollen stomach that is very uncomfortable. could this be a reaction to the preservatives?

Hello. My husband, son and I all ate fish from a fast food restaurant on Thursday. On Friday, I had diarrhea over the course of the day with some abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue. I felt better by that evening. My son was a little nauseous on Friday night, but felt better with Pepto Bismol and tums. My husband became feverish with chills, severe weakness, and severe diarrhea on Friday evening. He has continued to feel weak since then with diarrhea and some nausea. He has no appetite. I have been offering crackers, soup, ginger ale, and popsicles. He is very tired and has been sleeping most of 2 + days. He does not think he needs to see the Dr. ..... He is diabetic (oral meds) and is being treated with hormones for prostate cancer. Thank you for your help.
