i have had this pain for more than 8 months, and it feels like its getting worse. my abdomen, my upper lip, and my arms tend to twitch when I think about this condition. its like a swelling pain, almost like a constant cramp, but it doesnt hurt when i breathe. and at night its hard to sleep because of it, i cant go to sleep on my left side at all. Last night it frightened me because the pain moved to what felt like my heart. my back also had pinching or piercing pains, upper back a few weeks ago, and recently the lower back.
