There are a lot of organs on that left side. Stomach, spleen, pancreas, heart....and then there is referred pain which could come from somewhere else. I have had pains in that area from acid stomach and also from scoliosis. I would check with a doctor. Maybe an MRI could give you some answers.
thank u, my gi got me an appt 2 have a ct w contrast, but earliest appt isnt till oct.5th. hopefully i can wait that long. ❤
I don't like that it hurts more when you apply pressure. Can you see an acupuncturist sooner? Acupuncture has worked really well for me.
no my insurance doesn't cover it and i, as every1 else, r barely getting by. yeah its like hard 2 pin point where the pain is, all on the entire left side, so from right under my left ribs,starting at where my ribs split, down to below my belly button and all the way to my side and towards the back. if the pain gets worse i will go 2 the e.r., and i cant believe the appointment is so far out myself.
Phooey. My acupuncture place is a community clinic, and has a sliding scale for payments, based on what a person feels they can pay at the time. Treatments are $25-50. I don't know how they stay open.
wow that is awesome! maybe theres 1 by me that does that. thank u ❤
