I have been dealing with a dull pain right below my sternum for many years now. I will be 30 this month. Just within the past year and a half I have lost almost 90lbs and I wasn't even trying.I weigh a healthy 145 now but I'm still dropping. Recently within the last year or so I started to have a lot of nausea that leads to vomiting. I frequently have diarrhea. I also always feel as if I need to use the bathroom whether just to urinate or have a bowel movement. I'm fatigued all of the time. Just today I had an episode of pain so severe it radiated from the bottom of my sternum to my right side. Also up into my right shoulder blade was like a twinge pain but intense! It hurt to breath it hurt to lay down, I vomitted. I've also had this persistent horrible pain in my back on the right side almost around the kidney area I believe. No one here at the clinic listens to me. I'm tired of feeling sick all of the time! I can't eat, I get sick. I feel like I can't get enough sleep even,if I sleep over 8 hours. I always feel cold. Our thermostate stays on 77 degrees because of Me. My family is walking around miserable because I'm freezing ALL of the time. I wear a sweater, pants and socks at all times! Someone help me! I have 2yr old twin boys,and a 6 yr old boy. I work a full time job and am miserable! They need their momma back!

  • A lot of these symptoms point towards gallstones or issues with the gallbladder, from what I've read. Especially the correlation between pain and nausea. Gallstone pain is very well known for radiating the exact way you've described, and even the pain of laying down is said to be common.

    If it is gallstones or something effecting your gallbladder, for more immediate, and unfortunately not the most potent, relief is to cut out any fatty foods. Fatty foods cause the worst flairups, due to the fact that they stimulate the gallbladder more, cause the stones to get lodged and cause pain.

    Testing for this would probably start with an ultrasound, and I would suggest you be seen ASAP.

    (As for the temp issues, this could be related to your digestion and gallbladder as well. Low nutrients absorption can cause anemia, which in turn often lowers your body temp or causes you to feel cold.)
