Hello, I have been having quite a bit of pain & burning on my left side and bottom of my rib cage. Does any one know what this could be? I'm looking in to seeing a gastroenerolgist. Thanks so much. Lorray

hi, I have been experiencing a dull ache and burning sensation above my left breast and burning just under the right and left side of my ribs. I visited the doctor who queried gastritis and prescribed me omeprazole to reduce the aacid in my stomach. My symptoms are much better although i still the burning above my left breast, which i guess is heartburn. I have to take the omeprazole for 2 months to give my stomach wall enough time to heal. I suggest you visit you doctor and get yourself checked out i'm glad that i did because i was starting to get quite worried about it.

Hope this helps. Sares

Hi

I took omeprazole 40mg for 1 month, when i came off them, i went onto a step down dose of 20mg. I'm now off them completely and the pain seems to have cleared up. I do occasionally get a few twinges and strange sensations, but i'm not sure if its the same thing or not.

How long have you had the burning?

Sares.

I seem to be having the same problems. As I am sitting here at the computer I notice them more. When standing up it is releived a little.

I would be interested to hear of ways in which people overcame this irritating problem and what it was/is ?

Hi
I'm back on 20mg omeprazole to keep the acid at bay. I keep getting the strange sensation below my left rib and wonder if it's a hernia.

I notice that the sensation comes on more often toward the end of the day and I also feel it more when i'm seated.

Louise -
i've been having the same thing happen as you describe. very irritating dull pain. not really enough to take anything for but annoying. i notice that when i'm sitting at the computer it is worse. and when i'm at work (where i stand the whole time) i don't notice it as much. let me know if you find out anything. i'm going to a gastroenterologist on dec 18th.

I have the same problem with the discomfort on the left side. I have found however, that taking probiotics and 2 tablespoons of apple-cider vinegar in a glass of warm water in the morning has helped tremendously.

Costochondritis is a problem that they said I had, its associate with fibermyalga. Mine is lower than alot of you describe. They say that it is caused by the inflamed place where the rib connect. mine is very low rib and almost under my rib. The doc said its usually higher so i am going for an xray
