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

Other stretched tubes may cause similar pain i.e. gallstones or kidney stones. That pain usually lasts longer and often requires medical attention. ...Read more

Not unheard of.: Although it is not usual to have persistent pain after a colonoscopy, it is not unusual to have some discomfort for one to weeks afterwards. As long as the pain is mild and is improving, i would not worry about it. If it persists longer than two weeks or worsens abruptly, then i would contact your gastroenterologist immediately. Good luck! ...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 more
