Hello everyone and thank you for the great job you are doing with this website.

So, i know that the information provided here is not intended to be a doctor's advice, and i am planning to see my doctor soon about the issue, but because i am generally an anxious person i had a question.

For the past 3 days going to 4 i have been having this upper left abdominal pain. It is about where the ribs start curving to the left side and a bit lower. The pain sometimes is pressure, sometimes is sharp and days like today it kinda radiates to my back a bit.

I have chronic gastritis diagnosed in 2009, possible gerd from what the doctor has told me and until 2 days ago i was constipated for like 5 days. Last days i was also at a rocky beach laying down with my stomach and the stones were sometimes hurting my ribs.

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas of what it might be. I had blood work around a month or so ago and it was fine. Also to mention that i have been having stomach issues and aches for a long time now, but nothing like that. On a scale of 1-10 sometimes its nowhere and sometimes its like a 7.

Also the past 2 weeks i was a little bad, eating ice creams, chocolate and things like that with an empty stomach and i am not sure if that might also be the cause together with the constipation.

Thank you in advance,
John

I am sorry, i forgot to say that i have no fever, mo vomiting or blood in stools or anywhere. Maybe some nausea but nothing more than that.

Not on medication, CBT is my personal choice. Do not give up, there is always hope even at times that it does not feel like it.
