For the past couple of months I feel like there is a knot or something stuck in my stomach. Located just under my rib cage on the left side. If I burp I feel a little better. But mostly the pain will go away if I eat something. Sometimes that does not work either and I have to kind of wait it out. It does not happen everyday. It happens at least three times a week. It is not real painful, but is really bothersome and can be distracting. I have not been able to link it any particular foods, activities or anything. I am breastfeeding my daughter so I cannot take anything except for Tums and does has not had any relief. Any ideas?View Thread
my stomach feels really full and big. I look like I have a huge tire around my waist. I full really full and sluggish. Now I am starting to feel pressure in my chest region and pains in my middle to lower back. Pain is not really severe, just really comfortable making it hard to concentrate at work. Help View Thread
