Pain in left side, pain in chest. What could this be?

For the last few months Ive been having symptoms of GERD , thats what my PCP is treating me for. I told him I have pain on the left side just above my clavicle in the hollow area. He felt to see if I have any swollen lymph nodes and says I dont. Now the pain has spread to my right side, and feels like it is in my collarbone towards my sternum and Im having bad pain in my chest just below collarbone on right side. At its peak I feel bubbling. Any idea what this could be? It is not relieved with any pain killers.

Hello,

You have to do an MRI chest to know exactly what is it. As this may be cardiac related or chest related and it is hard to differentiate between them.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Salah Saad Shoman, Internal Medicine Specialist

I have had pain in my left breast on and off for around 2 months now. Sometimes it would radiate up into my left shoulder, and my loser back on the left side would hurt. For about the last 2 days it has seemed to be all of the above plus chest pains, sort of like muscle pain. What do you think it could be?

My family has a history of Digestive problems. Colitis, and Ulcers in their digestive system. The last couple years I ve noticed similar symptoms with my digestive system. Today I ve had a deep pain in my abdominal area and it seems to be a throb. I first noticed it last year and lately it s been almost constant. After I eat, before I eat, if I don t eat. Throb throb throb. Today it s a pain or Pinch on my left side right under my rib cage. I ve read it could just be gas, I ve had a little or it could be Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. Or something else. I just want to have an idea of what s going on with my stomach and digestive system instead of always worrying about what I can or can t eat or even when I can eat. Please help I really want a normal stomach :) or just to find out what s wrong so I can fix it.

my son is 2; has had a swollen lymph node since May 2010 that varies in size but has never gone back down. Originally he had a double ear infection; it s even larger now due to a recurrent double ear infection diagnosed today. I want to know if it could be something more than this; it is not normal to have a visible lymph node 7mos. They keep saying it is ok.
