I had a similar problem, when this stabbing pain would flare up under my left rib cage... It was also hard for me to inhale. I had an endoscopy and my doc says it's reflux. He put me on nexium.

cheers I have been put on lansopazole,the tablets are not helping.I have salbutomol inhaler that was doing nothing .I have never had breathing problems in my life.I dont no why this is affecting my breathing.I was told my exray of my lungs was normal the question is why is my heart racing.It might be developing in to panic attacks because it gets to me when I can not get full breath.When I eat it makes the problem worse ie my breathing.I am going to docs next week I dont think I can put up with this much longer thank you for responding
i hope it is reflux hopefully they can get this sorted.I had to go for peak flow but I could not get enough air in to get a reading.

Does it correspond with eating dairy? If so, it may be lactose intolerance. I am going thru the same thing right now Sad

Stomach Ulcer
Hi thanks for the reponse I am still finding it hard to take a deep breath,
i have stopped smoking for 10 month and still have stomach pain.I did have a ulcer been on the meds so far camera down tried differant tablets nothing has helped.I have been put on rabeprazole this seems to be making me worse.It has all started since I stopped smoking,so much for making me better.I was losing weight now I am putting weight on and not eating have a much falling to bits.Still can not take full breath stomach feels hard all the time like a football.Told I had panic attacks on top I think it due to the pain heart still going fast can not get my breath I could breath no problem before this stomach problem.Hope some one out there got an answer my doc thinks I am mad :(

Cutterplillow, that's -exactly- what I'm feeling right now. It feels like I'm burping a lot more lately though (could be my imagination), but it feels somewhat like trapped gas in my stomach. When I breathe in, it's like something is fighting for space in there (like my lungs are pushing against something)! It hurts, a -lot-. Dx

Hi everyone. I was having all these strange symptoms until I had my gall bladder removed. I went through every test and every drug for eight years. The room would spin, my heart would pound after meals, I had pain in my stomach and chest and on right side by bottom of rib cage. I felt horrible, really foggy and annoyed. I was anemic and had to get B-12 shots. I could not get a decent night's sleep. The gall bladder had a 90% ejection fraction. Only a great Dr. will know this is too high and is not functioning correctly. They are doing research on this now. I started back on acid reducers to help the gastritis heal since it did nothing for me before surgery. I hope this post helps. Hugs- Susan

I get this same problem too. I get the shortness of breath and the pain after eating from acid going up my throat. I have a hard time burping and when I do I burp 20 times in a row. I also noticed I am not passing gas like I used to before all this. I found that I can breath much better have passing some gas or burping?? I am starting to take Zinc Carnosine and multi vitamins. There seems to be some relief from multi vitamins. the Zinc Carnosine pills hurt a my stomach a little but I am goin gto give them a chance. I read that if you are low on magnesium that can make you have acid reflux. I'll let you know if I find a cure. I totally understand your panic and frustration.

An answer to other posts
I was diagnosed as having an ulcer about 6 months ago and the pain ya's have described sounds like the same as me.....no painkillers relieve the pain and the main pain comes from below the breastbone and top of the belly. I have to go for a test next month to make sure its not bleeding etc....ask ur docs to test u out for an ulcer Smile

I have had this fullness feeling and discomfort in my chest and a dull pain on the right side under my ribcage for quite some time now. The doctor keeps telling me that it is GERD. My friend is a RN and told me it was Gallbladder issues. I mentioned it to my doctor and he didnt tink so. I have taken many different meds and nothing helps. The only thing i have found to help is eating a heartburn diet. I am pain free and no heartburn. If interested, www.heartburn.about.com/od/heartburnfreere cipes
Hope this helps!
