Pain under left side of rib cage page 3 – spleen forum – ehealthforum c gastronomie vitam

I began having pain in this area when returning from a beach vacation in june of this year. Thought i’d cracked a rib but soon after returning home I started to break out in a rash in that area and around the left side of waist which was later diagnosed as shingles. The pain associated with shingles is sometimes near unbearable. I’d always thought those that complained with shingles pain was complaining because of discomfort of the rash. Not the case. The pain of shingles is internal and feels much like a cramp you have in your leg that won’t go away. It took two months to get over this. Now i’m having pain again in the same area. It’s not the same type pain, not like a cracked rib but a dull pain. One odd thing is that my heart seems to skip a beat during these episodes. It feels as if there some kind of flip-flop thing going on and it wakes me sometimes at night. I’ve recently had ekg’s and a heart cath with negative report. I’ve read the posts here many of which sound much like my own complaint but I haven’t seen anything mentioning the heart

I have a lot of these symptoms a boney lump that gets bigger and smaller moves position is sore and tender and nagging pain coming from around the lump. I have had this for a few months and have seen a physio who has given me excersises that have improved the size of the lump. He said it was inflamation of muscle but can also feel damaged cartilage. I too have pains across my stomach and a lot of gas, suffered anxiety/panic attacks for last two years since my son was born and pain in my rectun for the last four years since the birth of my first child. Not sure if any of these are linked but they sound similar to every one else here. My son has also been extremely ill since I started weaning him and we now susspect coeliac disease which he is currently being tested for. It causes all sorts of problems with the gut and digestive system as well as painful joints and weakening of the bones and many more underlyin conditions/problems. It is caused by a gene in the family and can occur at any age not just from birth. I wonder if this could be linked to my problems, it probably isn’t but it is worth a try as I cannot think how I could have damaged my cartilage!!! My physio asked me if I had a severe blow to the area but I can’t think of anything.

Hello and wow, so many with the same or similar problem. I just started having it pretty severely today. But a bit different than some of you in that the pain was around the whole rib cage and wrapped around to the back. I could lay down for a while and it would go away but then come back. I go along with the trapped gas idea on this. I don’t know about the pain under the rib cage because mine wasn’t that far down. And I just had a big meal and stuffed myself at mcdonalds, which I don’t often do, then laid around on the couch and watched a movie. That’s when I really had this ache and pain start up. Very similar to my back being out or something. I came across this site when searching google, which I always do when there is some unidentified pain or something I have. Well, thinking about the trapped gas idea, I thought perhaps bread would absorb any gastric juices in my system (don’t know where I got that idea, but seems sort of common sense) so I ate some bread and drank some water because it made me thirsty — and the pain totally went away. So… I can say, if you have the same pain as I described, eat some wheat bread (or white bread — who knows) and see if it doesn’t help. Crazy maybe, but it certainly can’t hurt!! Much better than drugs!! I do think it was trapped gas and probably not moving through my system because of all the fats in the foods I just ate. I ususally have a lot of gas and particularly when a bit stressed. Been stressed a lot because my mother is currently ill. But seems you can take some sort of action to alliviate problems and then stress is less! Good luck.

man you really hit the nail on the head. For some strange reason the past 3 to 4 days I have been having this soreness type feeling in one spot right below my left ribcage. I figured it was just a sore muscle in there because I was doing some pulling the day prior to all this. It’s nothing sharpe or painful by any means, just some soreness. I also do not have any pain in my back. I haven’t been to the doctor because it just happened and I wanted to give it time to go away. The even funnier thing is that my g/f is going to nursing school and was doing some vitals homework on my lastnight and noticed that my heartbeat was irregular. I have a heart murmur and have had it since birth and told her that’s what the irregualrity was from. I figured that’s what it was…I am really starting to get worried because i’m 21 years old and don’t want to start having any major problems. I don’t do much physical activity or exercise like I use to in high school. I notice alot of people are saying they have the same symptoms, but aren’t really offering much explanations.

To the person I have quoted, have u been to the doctor and had any sort of tests? I’m really interested in your case because it seems similar to mine. Any information would be much appreciated. Do I have any real reasons to worry or stress about this? Like I said it just feels a little sore nothing big and I don’t have the sharpe back pains like many of you have described. Do any of you think it could actually just be a strained muscle there?
