I have A constant squeezing pressure in my upper left abdomen, right under the left rib cage where my stomach would be. This squeezing pressure is worst after i eat, and After I eat or drink. The squeezing pressure will then move  up into my left chest, and put pressure around my heart after a full meal. What could be causing this?

You may have a hiatal hernia. Also your vegus nerve could be irritated.

Hi BearFan,
Welcome to Healing Well! Sorry you haven't gotten many responses. I think it's because many members don't know what to say, since they haven't had a similar experience.

Have you seen a GI doc for your problem? Do you have a good primary care physician? You should definitely get to a medical professional and discuss your issue. It isn't something to just sit and worry about. Go find out what's going on!

Good luck finding great doctor to help you!
Be sure to let us know what you find out.
Take care,

Gotta agree with Denise and Joy. Don't waste any time. Get an appointment scheduled at least with your PCP or better yet with a good GI doctor. Usually these things don't get better on their own. They just tend to make you more miserable.

Take care,
