If these are canker sores then why do I have them for weeks and at work my throat was burning and the at the end of the day I was horse and almost losing my voice?

I read that it could be crohns disease or celiac disease or something wrong with the immune system , Im worried that it's something bad and won't get better!!

your anxiety symptoms are out of control.

you need to stop smoking and eat healthier and stop binge eating and start to exercise.

I was up today at 3am, the reason why was because I have this pain, it's on left side right under my left breast, I have had two bowel movements and last night I had drank a tall glass of milk before bed so I don't know if this is gas or what, it hurts if I cough or push and sometimes when I move certain ways. what is this? It wasn't like this last night but when I woke up its been like this!

it is most likely from gastritis from your prior history of binge eating and poor diet and acid reflux.

Customer reply replied 12 months ago

why does it hurt the most when i cough

Customer reply replied 12 months ago

i just coughed and it hurts bad right under my left breast

because your stomach is inflamed from gastritis.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 12 months ago

i know what to do for it long term but what should i do for it now?

you can take stomach acid reducing agents like maalox, mylanta, zantac to decrease stomach acid

and eat regular meals. don't skip meals.

i have been gassy, i also had two bowel movements today thinking that would help but the pain is still there. What is in that spot that the pain is?

your stomach is in that spot. the organ which receives your food from your esophagus and produces stomach acid to help with digestion.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 12 months ago

so this is gas? Is gas or a gas pocket this painful?

it is inflammation of your stomach called gastritis which is causing the pain.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 12 months ago

is this worrisome?

you need to get your stomach acid under control

you need to eat healthier and take stomach acid reducing medications

and you have to start to exercise to improve your abdominal muscles.

I keep telling you these things, but you are not willing to do them.

so you continue to have acid reflux and symptoms.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 12 months ago

is this something to be worried about if I start to do the things you have told me to do?

you don't have to worry about it

but you have to change your habits to improve your health.

why does it hurt so bad when i cough just in that one spot? Did i break or fracture a rib in my sleep?

coughing can spasm the diaphram which is right above your stomach.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I have had this pain all day but i have also been gassy all day too
Customer reply replied 12 months ago
Im not sure it feels like a gas pain or pocket??

the pain is from inflammation of your stomach from something you most likely ate.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What if this is something bad like cancer or doesn't get better??

all of your symptoms in your past have gotten better before.

stop smoking if you are worried about cancer.

smoking will cause you to get lung cancer and other cancers.

I have to make some drastic lifestyle changes and one starts today which is my diet, yesterday i didnt eat until around 1:00pm and it was a big meal and it was junk and then the rest of the day yesterday i had indigestion, and when i woke up this morning i was still having indigestion, its like there is food sitting in the back of my throat, i also have some nasal drip as well

you have been eating poorly like this, missing meals and binge eating like this for many years.

you have poor eating habits

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
why does it feel like there is food like sitting back there?

because you have severe indigestion and bad acid reflux and irritation from post nasal drip.

another thing that has been going on for a week or two but I just havent mentioned it. On the right side, middle back, when I bend over or if I am just sitting here it will feel almost as though it fell asleep. What's this about?

you most likely have a herniated disk pinching a nerve in your lower back right side.
