Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen.

I think it would be wise to see your doctor and have it evaluated with and EKG and possibly a monitor worn for 24 hours to check for abnormal heart rhythms or other potentially harmful causes of the symptoms. ...Read more
