I am a 58 year old female with ongoing pain

I am a 58 year old female with ongoing pain in my thorasic spine area. I have had physical therapy and xrays with no help. this has been going on for almost 3 yrs. I have been to a spine specialist who said it has to do with my rib cage and a nerve. Well this problem comes and goes nothing seems to help at all. I just had a Bravo device placed in my asphagus and the pain is back terrible when I swallow food. Do you have any idea what this could be and if there is any hope that I can get rid of this problem. Thank you for your time.

Hi, I m an 18 year old female and I m experiencing chest pain (right in the middle, where my sternum would be). It has been ongoing for a few days now and the severity fluctuates as the day progresses from mild discomfort to sharp pain when breathing or moving.

I have an abdominal pain that goes and comes throughout the day (right lower side). Started mildly about a week ago and has increased. I started exercising about a month ago, if that matters. I am a 58 year old female. I also noticed that the color of my urine has darkened. Do you know what the problem could be?Cynthia

I have recently (18 months-2 years) been experiencing Colicky chest pains. I ve had my bloods and stool checked all came back ok (slightly raised cholesterol) I m not sure if I have a hiatus hernia as i need to have the check for that. I was prescribed Omeprazole which it appears agrivates my kidneys. Is there a way of identifying a hiatus hernia without having an endoscopy which i can t bare the thought of. The attacks of pain seemed to be 6 monthly usually when i m over tired. I have been taking exerscise and eating a very health (low acid level) diet and also lost a stone and a half, I m 46 years old and female (had the gall stone ultrasound test, again all clear) I do smoke between 5-8 cigarettes a day. Could you give me your thoughts on my next move as the pain can be very strong and wakes me in the night. I m in good relative health although I do suffer with IBS
