Hello,:) I am a 29 year old female, I have pain from the left side under my rib-cage and radiates to the left side of my back. Also lately i been getting heartburn.. and a stabbing pain right by my heart to my left shoulder.. Lately i can not stand on my feet for more that 2 hours,, i have to lie down a bit for the pain to go away.. I do have constipation problems for more than 4 years(i can not go without using suspositories), and my fingernails and toenails get blue,,, I was previously diagnosed with H-Pylori twice.. i did take all the meds.. prev-pac and prevacid for 8 weeks..I am at lost now.. wonder what these are symptoms for.. please help thanks. misstired

  • hello, i think your present symptom doesn't relate to your past diseaseas as the pain originated from duodenal or gastric ulcer has relation to meal. you've pain under rib cage which we call it a renal angle, and according to your pain history, it seems like renal colicky pain. if you manage to go to near hospital, you can ask for abdominal x ray. ok take care.Hello,:) I am a 29 year old female, I have pain from the left side under my rib-cage and radiates to the left side of my back.

  • I've had that kind of pain for months now, no one seems to have any clue of what could be causing it, I've tried antacids but no difference except for it got rid of the heartburn.

  • I can feel you, this pain just won't go away.. and driving me crazy.. thank god though my test results turned out normal ( no infections) my dr just put me on keflex, and prevacid.. just cuz i had the symptoms of an infection.. i am thinking it may just be muscle pain.. might just want to try a heating pad or something.. hopefully that works,, i hope you feel better..
