Customer Question
On Monday, I had stomach...
On Monday, I had stomach cramps all day. Monday night around midnight I began throwing up and that lasted until Tuesday morning. At least 10 times. From throwing up so much I assumed I would have dry heaves but I never did because it seemed like I had a lot of bike or stomach acid that I was throwing up. Since then I have a pain in my upper left abdomen right under my ribs. It radiates up into my chest and around my back to my left shoulder blade. If I apply heat or eat a little bit, it goes away for a little while. If I don't it just grows to be extremely painful. Is this part of a virus or is it possible I have something else?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
