My husbend came home with severe pain under his left rib cage. He is one not to go to the doctor or to take pain pills. I have not been able to talk him in to seeing the doctor(we do not have insurance) but he found old pain pills and are taking them. He said the pain is about an 8 from scale to 1 thu 10. He is never sick!!!! the pain pills are from when he broke his finger at work this summer. He said when he takes a deep breath and holds it the pain decreases : This is scaring me and I dont care if we have insurance, I know he wont be able to take the pain much longer,its keeping him up at night unless he takes the pain med. Do you have any ideal what it could be?
Hi. i'm 14. I just went to the hospital last night with the same exact thing. What they gave me was pepsid. With is just liquid pepsid ac. Give him that. It should work. And if not, then you should go to a doctor.
Any chest pain merits a trip to the doctor. If you have not doctor then go to an ER. When you get the bill you can claim financial hardship and they may reduce the bill for you. It is worth trying. I hope you can convince your husband this may be serious and needs to be looked into.
