Extreme soreness below rib cage (left side)

Posted by rocupink09

I have been sick almost every day for about a year.  I recently found out that I have a hiatal hernia, acid reflux, and gastritis.  I am constantly feeling nauseated, out of breath, dizzy, and tired.  This is almost every day for me.  I am concerned.  This soreness below my rib cage has been tender for about 2 days.  I also have very irregular bowel movement.  Sometimes it can be a week to almost 2 weeks without any bowel movement.  Please give me some feed back.  It would be much appreciated. Thank you.

My tenderness is where the colon starts to descend - pain for 4 days and a bloated abdomen. Think it possible inflamation but dont know the cause - very uncomfortable


I have Fibromyalgia.  You wouldn't happen to have muscle pain also?

Several years ago, I lay curled in the fetal position in constant pain for approximately 8 months.  I only ate a little bit in the evening because the pain after eating was almost unbearable. I had many tests and the Doctor finally decided that it had to be a bacterial ulcer.  The medication came packaged with 3 different medications for 7 days.  Included in this package was Prevacid for Acid Reflux.  As it turned out, my acid reflux was so severe that I had to take 2 capsules per day instead of the usual one per day.

A few years ago, they removed my gallbladder and afterwards, because I didn't feel so well, I quit taking all medication.   To my surprise, no more Acid Reflux Disease.

I too am very irregular  and  also suffered with irritable bowel syndrome.  I have also experienced shortness of breath and dizziness.
