Customer Question

I think I have an alien living inside me...there is something either in the bottom of my left lung or the left side of my stomach that is pushing my rib outward
JA: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?
Customer: no, no stomach upset issues, just a feeling of pressure on lower left rib, pushing out, has been there past 5 yrs or so
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I've seen a DR for this when it first started and was referred to a specialist but I am uninsured and low income and initial consult w/specialist was $600, so never happened

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for your symptoms.
There can be a few possibilities.
There can be distension of stomach from gas causing the feeling.
Reflux can be a factor.
Hiatus hernia can cause it.
Lung or spleen issues like a growth or enlargement can cause such feeling.
However, it is unlikely to be a serious or malignant issue as it is persisting for 5 years.

You can take an examination in a free clinic as you have insurance problem.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
