Suggest treatment for ingestion with back and rib pain

I have a indigestion back pain near and under the back left rib radiating to the front. 5 days ago a took a slight fall, could my back be out of alignment? Also the indigestion pain is agrivated after eating or standing for a long period of time. Should I be concerned with heart, I keep a regular check on my heart & 6 mos. ago it was all okay. I do suffer from Polymyalgia Rheumatica & Fibromyalgia, could that be the cause?

Hello,

Yes, possible the pain in the back with polymyalgia. Other possibilities like left renal calculi or lumbar muscle spasm or lumbar spondylosis or splenic flexure of colon inflammation or gastritis. Use tablet pantoprazole before breakfast for one week. If symptom not improved, please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.
