left abdominal pain below rip cage
was wondering if you found out what was causing the pain... I have been to ER twice this week... having all the same symptoms you were having... pain with coughing.. breathing or certain movements. I went the day before yesterday with unbearable pain.. a 10 on the scale. they told me I was constipated and sent me home... done what I should for that and the pain has still no subsided .. not as bad as it was the night I went to the ER but I have also been doing less moving around. Whereas the night I went to ER I had been on my feet working all day. I can not function like this I have a 6 year old I have to take care of and I'm a cosmetologist so If I'm not there I don't make money I am seeking answers and would appreciate a reply thanks
