Hello @bree9107, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I see that you had a similar post in another discussion. I have no medical training or background but I did a search using one of the symptoms you described in your post – "stabbing pain under my left rib cage that will move across my abdomen to just above my belly button" and came across an article that discusses this symptom and gives some possibilities.

Sudden sharp pain under the left rib? Reasons other than heart attack: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/health-news/sudden-sharp-pain-under-the-left-rib-reasons-other-than-heart-attack/articleshow/74636554.cms

I would also like to invite @astaingegerdm into the discussion to see if she may have some insight or suggestions for you. Your symptoms sound similar to those found in Costochondritis. I did a search on Connect and found another discussion that you may find helpful.

Have you thought about getting a second opinion at a major teaching hospital or a major health facility like Mayo Clinic? If you would like to seek help from Mayo Clinic, contact one of the appointment offices. The contact information for Minnesota, Arizona and Florida can be found here http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63.

Hi Ginger @gingerw, I haven't taken the walking sticks on the road yet but have been using them to walk in place on my sand dune stepper to help keep my balance. Suppose I should pick it up a little and take the show on the road so to speak 🙂

Thanks Don @dsh33782, I like seeing the information on a monthly basis vs daily. I also use Weather.com as they have a COVID-19 link that breaks it down to your County based on the town selected for the weather report.

Thanks Ginger! @gingerw – Just did a search and found this one in sign language but probably not the one you were referring to. My mother grew up in an orphanage and learned sign language. She tried to teach me but I wasn't a good learner at the time 🙁
