Hi,
Pain may be due to chosto condritis but you go for ECG to rule out coronary cause. if it is normal then consult your orthopedic surgeon.

I have been having chest pains on the left side for about 5 days. I already take Prilosec for my stomach, I have problems with pain in middle under ribcage for a while, no tests done but doc said could be ulcer. I have tried gas pills, malaoxx and of course still on the Prilosec. I went to the e.r. yesterday and blood work, ekg, and chest xray was fine. they gave me a concoction that should have made my stomach feel better if that s what it was, I think malloxx and lidocaine. it still hurts and I don t think I have pulled anything. I do feel like I have reflux in my throat at times but I have had no relief and now I am having tingling in my fingers, which I have had before. I also have had problems with swelling of my joints for a while now, been tested for lupus and ra which were negative. not sure where to go from here since I have no insurance for a lot of testing. main worry I have is that I am not having a heart attack. I am 34 yrs old and I have been trying to quit smoking for a while. I smoke about a pk a day and have for 20 yrs. scary. I don t know what to do.

4 year old son has the following symptoms.: abdominal distention, diarrhea, and vomiting for 1 week. Vomiting sunsided and abdominal distention persists, regular stool and stomach pain ( upper stomach- just below the rib cage in the middle). He was put on Zofran for nausea, 3 week course of Clarithro and Amoxicillin since H pylori cam back positive - done by pediatrician. Meanwhile the gastroenterologist did EGD post abx therapy said biopsy is normal and stomach looks fine and that his symptoms should resolve. HEr belief is that the nausea and abdominal pain is a result of a bad gastroenteritis. It has now been 6 weeks and the diarrhea returned for 24 hours with vomiting for 12 hours. HE now continues with the stomach pain which comes and goes and what he describes as his stomach rumbling for food. He has been on Prevacid for 5 weeks. Upper GI with follow thru is normal. IS there something else wrong?? PEdiatrician blood test for lactose and gluten sensitivity were negative. What could be the cause of this chronic stomach pain with nausea?

Hello. I am 29 (almost 30 years old) and I ve been having a persistent abdominal pain on the left hand lower side for about 4 months. It seems to be most aggravated when I go from sitting for long periods of time and standing and I feel it almost constantly through out the day. I exercise and doing any type of abdominal exercise is painful. I also get a stabbing burning sensation along with it on occasion, which seems to be aggravated right before a bowel movement. What could this be? Also, it appears my perineum is a bit swollen.
