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. :(

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.

All the paws and fingers are crossed for you.

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.
