I have the same problem and I have gone through CAT scans, ultra-sounds, x-rays and bone scans and my doctors cannot find anything abnormal.  Have you had any answers?

I don't have the answer--only more questions. I too have been suffering form a pain under my left breast that has moves through to my back and up under my shoulder blades. My only relief has been to take pain pills to dull the pain. Last month, I had a CT for something else and while reviewing the CT film with my doctor, he commented that I have an enlarge spleen. That wasn't what he was looking at, so it was just a comment in passing. When I got home I began my own internet investigation. While surfing the web, I keep finding reports that an elarged spleen can cause this pain on your left side up into your shoulder. WHY?????? and what can I do about it??????? Reply

You have trapped gas that cannot find it way out of your body.  Take some GASX two or three time a day until the gas is release and the pain is gone.  The pain can get worst and make you feel like you are having a heart attack.  It can cause you to been over and have sharp pain that can stronger when you try to stand up.  Avoid eating ice cream and drinking milk because this cause the problem to continue.   Eat small amount of dairy products and not to often. 


If you are looking for a quick remedy to your problem this is what will help resolve the issue faster.  Get you a glass of warm water and add baking soda and drink it.  It will help you burp and release the gas and get rid of heart burn.  This is is what go rid of my problem.  I hope it can help you.
