    I have had this pain under my left breast around the bottom of my ribs for more than eight months, and it feels like it's getting worse. It's like a swelling pain, almost like a constant cramp, but it doesn't hurt when I breathe. Sometimes it feels like pain in my chest, too, or in my upper and lower back.  What could it be?

    My husband recently had severe pain in his abdomen.  It was scar tissue from surgery which was done when he was a teenager.  You should have an ultrasound or a mri.  Consult your doctor.  They removed the scar tissue and he is now fine.

    Cardio pain RARELY lasts for an extended period of time unless its diagnosed angnia. I doubt it its heart attack related.

    i am having this same condition i have had a hidascan for gallbladder and i hv a stone but they say its not causing it. i had a colonoscapy and throat scope done havent gotten those results yet. my reg doc thinks its a pinched nerve and im going to go to a new pain clinic. i have read on boards it may be ulcer related as have been found through colonoscapy diagnosis. ive had this for 6 yrs now.
