Can someone offer any information. I have suffered bloating and severe pain under my ribs in the middle of my chest (just below my boobs) for some time. My doctor thought perhaps ibs but no matter what I did, nothing helped. Sometimes pain is worse when I don't eat. Don't know what to do as poain is so bad at times I just have to go to bed in hope that I can fall asleep.

Is it a burning pain or is it a sharp pain, and is it in the "v" of your stomach?
