Customer Question
i am having pain on...
i am having pain on left side just below breast. i was diagnosed with high blood pressure in oct when i went in for this mystery pain. was prescribed amlodipine 5 mg, then added lisinopril 10 mg later and now lisinopril 20 mg. blood pressure remains at 140-150 even though i have lost 20 pounds, cut way back on salt, and mystery pain is still here. the pain is an ache, but once very sharp, like a chest pain. it started out to be all the time, which is why i went to the doctor. then it became less frequent, like once every 2 weeks, but know it is back to like every other day. tests done since oct, blood work, chest xray, stress test, everything is normal. cholesteral count is excellent. i am white female, 58, smoker for 30 years. up until this health has been excellent, no meds, no problems. height 5ft 7, 150 pounds.

Hello,
Welcome to justanswer.com and thanks for your question.
Well as you describe there may be possibility of Gastroesophageal reflux disease in your case .
As your all investigations are normal and you have history of smoking so pain under the breast can be caused due to acid reflux .
It is advised to consult a gastroenterologist for further evaluation and management .
In the meantime you should drink plenty of water .
Avoid smoking and alcohol.
Take OTC mylanta .
Avoid spicy , fried food , carbonated beverages.
If your symptoms 'll not relieve with self care medications then you may require prescribed medications .

I hope this helps.

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.
