Left abdominal pain due to hiatus hernia

I have been having upper left abdominal pain for approx 12 yrs. It is a dull boring pain that lasts 1-3 days. An endoscopy 10 years ago indicated a mild hiatus hernia . I lost weight thereafter (27 to 25 BMI) and the pain went for 2-3 years before returning. I do note that pain starts 12-24 hrs after alcohol ingestion , and in the last 4 years has also occurred around my left kidney area as well (again 1-3 days). The pain is noticable more at night resulting in sleepless nights until 4-5am. The pain tends to be higher in the chest when lying and lower in the left belly, kidney and more usually in lower left rib cage area during the day. Anti-acids, heartburn are of limited use as are acid inhibitors. During the day I find that wind in my stomach area that is relieved by throwing back my left arm which makes me burp??? This gives a minute or so relief from the pain (more or less) Recent ultrasound, ct scan , have come negative as has the recent endoscopy (no hiatus hernia?). The doctors state they have ruled out pancreatitis based on negative CT scan. Is this correct, what other examinations would inform ??

Welcome to healthcareMagic forum.

the investigations which were done very relevant and very informative to pick up all possibilities for your pain , as they have been negative , I would not advice you further new investigations,these symptoms could mean a diffuse non specific abdominal discomfort, as a mild hiatus hernia was there 10 years ago ,I cannot think of any other possibilities for now, so do not worry

It would still be wise to cut down the alcohol consumption . This will help you.
