Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

This started months ago. When I would eat or drink something cold, I'd get a sharp pain under my left shoulder blade. The only way I can describe it is JUST like a brain freeze but in my back. Then I was getting pain in my left side under my ribs. They were very tender and felt like there was something under there. Like a lump. But I could never actually feel a lump. So I went to the doc and she scheduled an upper GI. Before I had my appt I ended up in the ER with the pain under my ribs. They ran tests, blood, urine, etc. They did and xray and said there was nothing there as far as tumors or anything. They also gave me a "GI cocktail" and I found out the hard way I'm allergic to viscous litocaine. The cocktail didn't help. I went to my upper GI appt and was told I have a small hiatal hernia and mild reflux. I was prescribed omeprazole which doesn't help. I've had heartburn. I had it the entire time I was pregnant. This is not the same feeling. The doctor in the ER suggested it might be costrocondritis but I thought that was more in the middle of the chest like in the sternum area. Well now for the last few days I've been getting sharp pains in my back like between my shoulder blade and my spine on my left side. It feels like someone is stabbing me with an ice pick. Or like sharp "electrical" pains if that makes sense. If I touch my bottom rib in the front, it's tender but pushing on it actual relieves the pain I feel under it. Someone suggested maybe because I carry my son (he's 20 months and about 25 pounds) on that side when I pick him up, maybe it's muscular? The pain doesn't get worse when I take deep breaths. I can't lie on my left side because it's so uncomfortable. Not painful. It just feels like there's a brick in my side. I don't notice a difference when I eat. I can't find a connection between the two, but could it be gas?? It just doesn't seem like typical reflux symptoms.
