Ibs, gastritis or worse

Posted by jadillow @jadillow, Fri, Sep 6 3:35pm

Hello all. I have had a hyda scan done as well as a scope months ago and they said I had a very small high hernia. Fast forward to two night ago while in bed I had a pencil stabbing like dull pain in left side below right pectoral/upper abdomen. It lasted the next day and was tender to the touch. The next night if moved to the left side breifly. Yesterday it started in left and then around stomach area. Comes and goes but is still there. Happens with movement and can feel if you push the area. Feels like a stabbing in that particular spot. My doctor seems to think all is well for now but wanted another opinion from maybe someone who has had similar or any recommendations. Thanks in advance guys.

Is the doc you saw a gastroenterologist? Since the symptoms continue, you should see a GI for a second opinion. Readers here may have had similar symptoms but they wouldn’t necessarily be related to the same condition as yours.

Yes. I saw one after my endoscopy and they said at that time they saw no major issues

I would see a GI also. My endoscopy showed gastritis only. A couple of weeks later I was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Blood work, CT scan and MRI showed it, along with an EUS which is an endoscopic ultra sound. My pain was also on the left side.

diverticulitis is also on left side usually.

I also have diverticulosis and when I have attacks, yes, they are on the left lower side.

What about possible gas feeling like a heart flutter and almost nonstop feeling of having to burp?
