Thanks for waiting. Do you have any pain on moving or while getting up or sitting down? Have you tried anything so far? Any pain in mid line just below breast bone? Regards

I had my gallbladder removed last year. The only thing I have tried is acid reducers and nausea medication.

Pain does not change when sitting or standing. No mid line pain.
I have heart disease in my family and have had a thorough work up.

Last question please;

How severe is the pain?

Has it gotten better with acid reducers and do you have nausea?

Regards

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Pain is rather severe. Acid reducers do not help. Yes, I have nausea frequently.
I had an appointment with a GI dr and he cancelled as he went out of town. I was laid off from my job and lost my insurance. I don't normally let things go.

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
