I have pretty constant pain just under my ribs, to the right of my sternum. The pain radiates to the right and through to my back where I get a a stabbing pain. I aslo get a twinge in my right shoulder, and regularly feel I'm getting facial flushing.
I burp a lot, but don't get any foul taste in my mouth. I sometimes get the feeling of a lump when I swallow, or that there's something stuck in my oesophagus, although I accept that this could be nerves due to my worrying. I surf the net looking to match my symptoms (as I'm sure we all do) and you name a disease - I've got the symptoms.
I don't think it's gall bladder - I tried a "Tagamet" I got from a friend (I know you're not supposed to do that) and it seemed to subside a bit.
I'm obviously worried and concerned that this might be something serious and would ask if anyone else has similar problems.
