I am having alot of pain that came on since yesterday

Customer Question
I am having alot...

I am having alot of pain that came on since yesterday afternoon. It is in my left upper abdomen under my ribcage. It is also noted in my left back. I am burping alot. The pain is intense and intermittent as to the point of taking my breath away at times. I cannot even bend over much. The pain is shortly relueved with burping then immediately returns. With application of pressure on my abdomen there are no tender spots. Application of a heat pad to my back is comforting and relaxing. I do not know if i have pulled a muscle or this is gallbladder, a parasite or what? I have not had a bm in a day and i took a docusate sodium at 8:30 pm last evening.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Any other symptoms?

Since yesterday afternoon

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I take care of my mother with Alzheimers who is bedfast and weighs 80 lbs. With nursing as my background i try to move correctly, but i have been known to pull muscles from time to time. My husband thinks i turned her too quickly and may have pulled a muscle. I dont think so.

It doesn't sound as though it's something muscle related, the way it radiates and the burping relief makes me think less of something muscular.

Do you have any pain when you move or when you press on the area? Do you have any nausea or urge to defecate or urinate?

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.
