Diaphragm pain – general q and a forum – ehealthforum gas knife lamb

First of all I believe you. I have this problem ongoing now. It happens every morning and the only way to get the pain to go away is to take a muscle relaxant. The name of the medicine would not help because they all have different names in Belgium (where I live). It takes about 30 to 60 minutes for the meds to take effect and then I can go on with a normal day. I haven’t been able to golf since the pains started though. They have come back every morning for 16 days now (except one morning when I was relieved and thought it was over). I say jokingly that it reminds me of the movie "Groundhog Day". I also call it that sickness or illness. I do not think it is anything to do with stomach problems even though my sports doctor does. He gave me Homeopathic medicine for stomach problems but it has not helped yet. This is also ongoing. My GP thought it could be a muscle problem and gave me Magnesium. This has not helped yet and if fact I have taken magnesium in one form or other for the last 5 years or so. I do not know what it is yet. But I will find out.

savagerii I finally got my answers the result for me was that I had gall stones so they removed my gall bladder, they said they didnt anticipate it being my gall bladder because Im not a heavy girl, they said that typically they see this in patients that are over weight, diabetic or have recently had a child… anyways they did some blood work on me and at first they thought it was my liver so then they did a CAT scan and then an MRI and they then sent me to have an ultra sound done on my organs thats when they found it I was accused of faking and making it up and everytime they thought I was pregnant and then they would try to convince me that I just have acid indigestion bottom line just ask them to do some blood work on you… if they have already done blood work ask them to do it again, then ask about a CAT scan they are easier to come by than a MRI and see what happens thats all the news I have for you. best of wishes… I have no more pain and thats cause I kept pushing them and telling them what I knew for sure it wasnt! good luck!

I am also having thisi have had about4 attacks in the last month and a half. I am going to go tothe doctor and see what they say.i am 31 5’7 and about 180 lbs so slightly overweight. Ihave had three kids and just as someone else said it is compairable to childbirth pain. In fact it feels very much like a contraction but in the wrong area. It starts our like a overworked muscle the burn you get and intensifies untill I am onthe floor doubled over. I have been woken out of my sleep from one of these. I was wondering if anyone elses extended to their back? I feel it all through into my back. With every breath it intensifys and it makes you not want to breathe. I have always been one to breathe through pain so it is very unsetteling for me to not be able to breathe through it.there is absolutly no position that iscomfortable formeto get into either, no easing it I just have to waitit outand itseemsto go away almost as suddenly as it starts. My attacks don’t seem to last very long maybe a few minutes but while im in it it definitly feels like forever and just like everyone elsecompletly wiped out after i just want to go to sleep.

I wear a rib belt which seems to help, feels like it keeps me together. I had my gall bladder removed a year ago, never had attack, no stones, just didn’t function. My doctor suggested a CT scan and I said no. I knew it would come back normal and he agreed. So someone came into our place of work last week and she told my husband that she had gone through the exact same thing that most of us are going through. If I bend over to rake, pull weeds, anything that I have to do that makes me bend forward just a little causes so much pain in my back and then I feel it in the front under my breasts and it makes me so anxious I have to stop and lie down for a while on heat, take pain pills and it goes away only to return a couple of hours later. The only relief I get is when I sleep at night and always with a heating pad.

In any case this person that came in to our office last week brought me some packets of protein mix, some other things that I’m not sure of and she claims that it took her pain away. She’s out for a few days so when she gets back I will talk to her and find out exactly how this stuff works and will share it with the rest of you.
