Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now from what you are describing it sounds like you may developed one of a couple of conditions. The first one which comes to mind is that you could have developed a problem with the gallbladder. You could be experiencing pain due to gallstones which can commonly cause pain in this region as well as pain which radiates to the back as well. A simple ultrasound would be diagnostic and if there are gallstones then it can be treated with surgery. Another cause can be gallbladder dysfunction this would require a hida scan to be diagnosed.
The discomfort in the left chest area can be due to gastritis or reflux which can commonly cause this issue. This would be diagnosed on the basis of a simple clinical examination an d then can be treated with otc prilosec 10 mg twice daily.
However since there is pain in the left chest a EKG should be done in order to get this evaluated for possible heart disease even though the possibility is low.
The absence of the cycle can be due to a hormonal imbalance, thyroid disease and even perimenopause.
Do you have anymore questions?

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
