Thu, Aug 29 8:43am · Left chest lower rib cage pain moving upwards in Digestive Health

Hi all, after a week in icu i now seem to have some kind of ulcer. I always get strange pains feeling like a heart attack but it comes amd goes. Someone told me it could be due to the ulcer or my lungs still have not recovered 100%
Could this be correct? Pain goes from.left to right, in my back and is really not nice. All ekgs came out ok

Oh also after reading your post asked doc about chest and back pains even the sores. Sores are from the icu being in bed so long, the chest and back from reflux. Thank u so much for your reply cos i thought i was going nuts. 🙂

Exactly, i had ekg done, the tests all clear. It could be a touch of anxiety but there is definitely something else. I find when i do get them to walk and see if its a wind thsts stuck, 80% of the time a walk up snd down stairs helps if not i take antacid that usually helps but def mine is diet

That would also make sense. I smoked but after my stay in icu for 2 weeks ive stopped smoking one month and doctor actually said most of my pains etc are from nicotine withdrawals not sure though as chest pains happened before icu

So pls dont laugh, but a doctor once told me that if you push on the pain and it goes away, you are NOT having a heart attack… how true this is i dont know but it helps set my mind at ease 🙂 i went to get the allergy and tolerance tests it showed up with gluten so it might help you understand the pains… i hope so
