Any pain in mid line just below breast bone? Regards
Last question please;
How severe is the pain?
Has it gotten better with acid reducers and do you have nausea?
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. As per your description, there are few possibilities at this location. It can be muscular or it can be due to stomach ulcer, gall bladder or pancreatitis. Since you don't have gall bladder we can rule it out. Muscular is not likely because of presence of nausea. Acid reducers haven't helped so ulcer is not likely. Here there is a possibility of this being pancreatitis so you should visit ER to get yourself examined and investigated by serum amylase, ultrasound and/or CT scan. Further treatment will be done accordingly. I can reassure you that there is no chance of this being related to any cancer or heart disease. I can understand insurance problem but nothing is above health so please visit ER and don't try anything on your own. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards
You are most welcome. My best wishes and prayers will be following you. Please remember to rate my answer. Regards
