I am a 29 yr old male and a few days ago started developing an excrutiating pain in my left abdomen. I thought maybe it was gas but nothing I took for it worked. It stayed in that one spot for almost the whole day. The following day I woke up and it was gone. Within a few hours it was back and had moved up my whole left side to my left shoulder. Again, the following day it was gone when I woke up and was back in a few hours....this time in my chest and not in my abdomen at all. Now, on the 4th day of this horrible knife wrenching pain, it's directly under the middle of my rib cage. I am a healthy, thin active person. I eat a strick diet, work our 4-5 times a week. I have no idea what this could be. The problem is I am in between jobs right now and am without health insurance, which is why I have not gone to my Doctor's. Has anyone experienced this before or heard of this?
