Experiencing muscle spasms under left breast diaphragm area as well as tenderness in back of upper left back, with a lot of burping.Lung congestion to?

See your physician: Say "pain", not "muscle spasm"; you may unintentionally mislead your physician. Any upper abdominal pain with upper back pain radiation is suspicious for pancreatic pain. While it can be a benign gastroduodenitis, you must not miss a more serious diagnosis, like pancreatitis, or a duodenal ulcer penetrating into the head of the pancreas. See your physician. ...Read more

It can be related to deficiencies of calcium, potassium and esp. magnesium, so supplementing with magnesium, esp. as mag. taurate or glycinate is worth considering- see http://drcarolyndean.com/magnesium_miracle/ Stress may also contribute to fasciculations. ...Read more
