From stomach?: Burning is due to excess air that you swallow during eating and drinking trying to come out of your stomach. The area you describe is where your stomach usually is when distended with food and water. Pain is felt due to muscles in between ribs contracting along with your diaphragm to expell air out in to esophagus. ...Read more

GERD a Possibility: GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease) could be causing your symptoms. This is when acid in the stomach goes up into the esophagus and causes pain.

Your symptoms are: Highly atypical for a unifying diagnosis. Therefore it is impossible to provide a diagnosis over the internet. You need to be examined and perhaps have blood work performed to sort this out. Go to a health care provider for an evaluation. ...Read more

Ihave random digestive noises, off bowels&random shooting pains on my left side and under my left rib. No reflux or burping but gas. Vagas nerve related?

See your doc: Bowel problems range from bad food, to lactose intolerance. You can try eliminating gassy foods such as milk, cabbage family, beans, etc or try adding digestive aids, but a colonoscopy would tell if the tissues are healthy or not.
Bowel habits, frequency of BMs, and diet are very important for a healthy digestion. GI docs, or your FP can answer your questions ...Read more

Pain below my ribs on the left side for 2 days, I can't take a deep breath because it hurts worse when I breathe too deep. When I burp it hurts extremely bad! I have very bad congestion and a cough, not sure if it's related?

Pain below my ribs on the left side for 2 days, I can't take a deep breath because it hurts worse when I breathe too deep. When I burp it hurts extremely bad! I have very bad congestion and a cough, not sure if it's related?

Could be related: The complaints sound consistent with pleurisy which is inflammation of the lining round the lung. One of the more common causes of pleurisy is infection and most commonly viral in nature. Pneumonia also a common cause but many times that is associated with fevers, cough, and mucous. Anti inflammatories like Advil or Aleve can be helpful. It would be a good idea for a medical provider to look at u ...Read more

Can excessive gas cause rib and back pain? Sharp pains under left rib, down left side and mid to upper back. Some burping and flatuence

Yes it can: Excessive gas in the bowels can cause pressure upwards and backwards. Pressure upwards effects the diaphragm which attaches to the ribs. Pressure backwards can impact the back. Drinking warm tea and gently massaging the belly may help move the gas along. ...Read more

Pain down left side, ribs and back. Burping a lot. Some burning feeling in middle of chest. Tiny black specks in stools is it excessive gas?

Pain down left side, ribs and back. Burping a lot. Some burning feeling in middle of chest. Tiny black specks in stools is it excessive gas?

Melenic specks?: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums. Persistent melena with your dyspeptic symptoms however warrants md visit. ...Read more

Constant lump sensation in left side of throat, frequent burping, feels like liquids get stuck going down chest leftside, pain under left side of rib?

Constant lump sensation in left side of throat, frequent burping, feels like liquids get stuck going down chest leftside, pain under left side of rib?

Get evaluated.: Anytime you feel a sense of food or fluids "sticking" at a specific place, I am concerned that there may be a narrowing in the esophagus. This may be as simple as irritation from a capsule that got stuck to something more complicated like a tumor. Needless to say, you need the information. Your doctor may refer you to a gastroenterologist, or send you for some imaging studies first. Good luck. ...Read more

I ve continuous chest pain on left side for 3 months. And I burp a lot. What it is & is it dangerous? Smoker bt already quit. And my age is 25.

Unsure: Left sided chest pain can have several causes, some very serious. With burping, uncontrolled acid reflux is high on the list. What did your Barium swallow show? If the omeprazole hasn't helped, you are due for endoscopy. Also make sure H pylori is ruled out and you avoid nsaids. Other possibilities are heart/heart lining problems, lung inflammation, chest wall musc/connective tis pain etc ...Read more

Sometimes when I burp I regurgitate some I know this is a sign of acid reflux but canit cause some pain on the left side of my chest also?

Yes: One of the biggest differentials for chest pain is GERD/reflux. Although it is a big differential and it seems like it could match your presentation, we wouldn't want to miss anything with the heart. I would get examined either way and hopefully your doctor can rule out any cardiac cause. Good luck! ...Read more

Can G.E reflux cause pain in chest on left side? I have chest pain on left side while making movement & whatever I eat or drink burps start. Wht it is?

Yes, but: GERD can cause left sided pain, but not pain with movement which sounds muscular. On the other hand, burping with meals means you're swallowing air ("aerophagia") which can be a symptom of irritation in your GI tract or just of stress. So, you have more than one issue going on, sir. ...Read more

Probably chest wall: It needs to be checked by your doctor but it seems it is in the chest wall according to your symptoms. The other causes can be gastro esophageal reflux, pleuritic pain. At your age it is unlikely to be from your heart. Get it checked by your doctor to find the exact cause. ...Read more

?: You list acid reflux and omeprazole. Your burping, which can be normal, may be a symptom of GERD. The pain you describe is muscular. The key observation is that movement of your chest muscles exacerbates it. This is not true of lung or heart disease or of acid reflux. ...Read more
