Hold thumbs please.

Im a little scared .. I have a doctors appointment again this morning.

I have been feeling very tired for the past few months .. with funny things happening, throat infection ,tooth abcess etc.

Friday morning I woke up with a terrific pain under/in my ribcage in my back ... it graduated to my my front ribcage (does this make sense?) and there it has sat ...im in a lot of pain.

I get the feeling it could be gas ( acid reflux or something ) BUT I have had pleurisy twice in the last 6 months ..and my doctor warned me if I get pleurisy again its time for tests .....

I wont be able to have tests now Im flying to Capetown on Wednesday morning .... so im praying it is a diet/gas issue.

Re: Hold thumbs please.

I hope that they find an easy answer to your pain. Maybe it is just an inflammation in the cartilage between the ribs. That can be pretty painful.

Good luck Carol! I thought I had acid reflux too, but it was my gallbladder, which I had to have surgery for . Maybe you should get an ultrasound done? That is what I did.

Goodluck with your tummy troubles, Carol. I deal with tummy issues daily, too. I know how not fun it is.
