This is the area of the stomach and the lower lobes of the lungs. If this is just pain without any a cough then the pain is most likely due to stomach issues.

Such a pain can be brought upon by stomach inflammation - gastritis or acid peptic disease (ulcer in the stomach).

You should start on Prilosec 10 mg twice a day and avoid spicy, salted, smoked and barbecued foods.

Drink a glass of milk to calm things down and keep an eye on them.

If the pain goes beyond a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10 or if you develop nausea and vomiting, this will warrant a visit to the ER or the Urgent Care.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5-star rating today! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5-stars at the top of the screen (rating me now does not close your question).

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.

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.
