Burning sensation below the ribcage 2 ctscan.6 endoscopy.2colonoscopy.3capsule endoscopy all normal except pantoprazole 40, mg for years doesn't help?

Burning sensation below the ribcage 2 ctscan.6 endoscopy.2colonoscopy.3capsule endoscopy all normal  except pantoprazole 40, mg for years doesn't help?

Not sure: Wow, you've had a lifetime worth of tests already. It's great they were all normal; that rules out a lot of bad stuff. If the strong antacid isn't helping, then that implies to me that the problem is not the stomach or related to acid production. (seems reasonable to stop the med.) i would try treating this with good sleep, a healthy, fiber-rich diet, and regular exercise and see what happens... ...Read more

I have severe burning pain under my left ribcage feels like somethings stuck at times also is hot to the touch my feet lips and face burn 2nd x in 2yr?

Hard to say: Since this is the 2nd time in 2 years you're having symptoms i would ask your primary care doctor to either work the picture up by ruling out simple things such as an infectious process (if in fact under the ribs it is hot to the touch) and going from there or to send you for a neurological evaluation. No specific disease to call based on what you've written but a work up, i believe, is warranted. ...Read more

Can acid reflux cause burning sensation in left shoulder and arm pit chest area. If I touch where it hurts it hurts worse?

Can acid reflux cause burning sensation in left shoulder and arm pit chest area. If I touch where it hurts it hurts worse?

No, this isn't GERD: This symptoms constellation is not consistent with reflux disease. It should be checked out just the same. The fact that the pain is worse when you touch the area suggests that it is either musculoskeletal or nerve pain. Is it related to meals? I'm wondering why you are associating this with reflux? The best way to approach this is to visit with your doc and have an exam done with some tests. ...Read more

Burning sensation in left testicles alone. Took scrotal ultrasound test. It said no problem. But still worried. I have GERD problem. Is it related?

Dont think so: Needs physical exam and more history, if you are still worried then discuss with your physician other options. As far as gerd is concerned make sure you are also tested for h pylori which is a bacteria associated with ulcers. Try to avoid any motrin/aleve/ibuprofen for your pain as that may make your gerd worse. Good luck. ...Read more

Possibly: Sometimes ovarian cysts rupture and women know it, sometimes it's painless. I don't think the discharge is affected by or is affecting the cyst. At 12 cm i would also keep torsion or twisting of the cyst in back of my mind. Watch out for roller coasters or going upside down. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I just finished 7 days of cipro for a severe UTI. Was better 2 days after now having burning sensation in left flank and stomach area as well as when urinating. Doctor prescribed macrobid which I've used and doesn't seem to help. Found traces of blood in

Resistance : There is becoming a higher rate of resistance to meds used for UTIs, particularly with Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and especially with Macrobid. Keep track of your temperature and evaluate your flank pain throughout the day as you the infection could turning into pyelonephritis. At this point, I'd recommend going on Levaquin, a stronger antibiotic. For future simple UTIs ask for Kefex 4 x / day. ...Read more
