  • My doctor always says this is indigestion, he even did EKG's to make sure. I have Gastroparesis though. I checked it out with the doc though, you never know with pain so close to your heart! I have been having it on and off on my left side above my breast since my menstrual cycle started this week though, being in a different place is kinda freaking me out but I imagine it has something to do with bloating and tenderness

  • If its gas you can make it go away by drinking honey and cinnamon together in 6-8 oz glass of warm,not hot water, 3 times daily also drinking raw mothers 2T organic apple cider vinegar with 1/8 tsp baking soda in a 6-8 oz glass of warm or cold water is a big bonus. Now I did this because nothing the doctors gave me helped I was in pain and gas would get stuck I know how you feel its irritating and ruins your life. Try these remedies whenever you feel this way.

  • I'm training to be a massage therapist so I have 2 ideas. The first one is Angina Pectoralis- literally means chest pain. The second, which sounds more suitable, is Pectoralis Minor syndrome- it is where your pec minor muscle compresses your brachial (i think thats the one) nerve. It can be treated through neuromuscular therapy sessions at a massage clinic.

  • I'm guessing Gallbladder. Hope you feel better!
