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
Nonspecific: Your symptoms are nonspecific and could be due to lactose or gluten intolerance or sensitivity. Irritable bowel syndrome is another possibility. If symptoms are very recent and bowels are loose, an intestinal tract infection(viral, parasitic) or food poisoning may be present. See your physician if symptoms persist or worsen,vomiting occurs or if your abdomen is very tender. ...Read more
May be gas in large: This may be what we call the "splenic flexure syndrome" where we get gas in the large intestine where the intestine flexes from the tranversecolon to the left descending colon - across the top of the abdomen and down to the left side. The intestine turns under where the spleen is and that is why it is called the splenic flexure where the intestine turns. Intestine gas can build up = pain. ...Read more

Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment. ...Read more
Having bad hunger pains with lower back pains swollen stomach and thumping in lower stomach. Help?
Define "hunger pang": Sensation of hunger is related to contractions of stomach muscles, that lead to hunger pangs once they become severe.

Irregular meals make hunger pangs worse. If real pain, get evaluated please--U sound concerned. ...Read more
I am feeling nauseas and have no appetite. I also have had gas pains in my back ond chest. I am not able to have a bowel movement for several days.
Constipation: Sounds like you're very constipated. In the long term, adding more fiber to your diet and drinking more water are essential to prevent this from happening. For now, try taking an over the counter stool softener like Miralax (polyethylene glycol). You can take this twice a day until you are moving your bowels, then taper it back to once daily or once every other day to keep regular. ...Read more

I have severe Pains in my upper left side of my chest. How c an I know the difference between gas pains or something more serious??
You can't.: chest pains can be difficult to diagnose, even for experienced physicians. If you have new onset of chest pain, no matter how innocuous it may seem, you should make an appointment to see your doctor. If your pain last for more than a few minutes and has not yet been evaluated, you might even consider a trip to the emergency room. The most important thing is not to ignore it. Good luck. ...Read more
Symptoms are nausea, gas pains, acid reflux, burping, and chest pains. It started this morning. Everything but the gas & chest pains happen often.
I think I keep getting gas pains in chest between breasts, 3 days. Saw dr last wk for physical if anything was bad would show in blood or ekg then?
Things can certainly: change quickly so a clean exam on Monday does not preclude the potential for disaster on Thursday. If the symptoms persist you should request a revaluation of your new symptoms even though you were just seen. Labs and EKG will not necessarily be predictive of impending issues. ...Read more

I am confused as to what type doctor that i need to see.
Urogynecologist: You should seek evaluation by a urogynecologist with experience in performing vaginal mesh revision surgery. However, your other symptoms are not likely related to the mesh. True vaginal mesh complications include pelvic/vaginal pain, vaginal bleeding, pain with sex, difficult or abnormal urination (after placement), groin pain, or other pelvic symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Been gassy for 2 weeks and stomach has been making a lot of noise. Have some gas pains. Back hurts. Had unprotected sex. What can this be?
Not related to sex: The gassiness is probably not related to unprotected sex. It could from a disturbance in your intestinal flora from recent medication, mild viral infection, or something you ate. You can try taking an OTC antacid for fast relief but may need to add a probiotic to address the problem more fully. If the symptoms continue, see your primary care doctor for further evaluation and management. ...Read more

Gas and acid reflux: These symptoms seem related to stomach and intestinal gas with acid reflux. You may also be relatively constipated. I recommend adding much more fiber to your diet, like high fiber cereal, oatmeal, apple, pear, celery and avoiding banana and greasy meat and pasta and sauce. Eat smaller amounts. Drink 2-3 liters of fluid per day in small sips. Do not gulp. Take simethicone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Taking simethicone after meals may prevent gas buildup. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate you. Appropriate tests will be done and dietary advice given depending upon the results of the workup. ...Read more

Get med-check up: I am not too concerned about the sweet taste in your throat. But an enlarged lymph node may need a physical exam from your doctor.
