Not sure if I chose the right topic but either way here's my problem. Over the last 5 days I've been experiencing a harsh pain in the area between the bottom of my rib and diaphragm. I can only describe the pain as if it were an expanding bubble that is about to pop. Reminiscent or the scene from "Alien". Sometimes I'll go an hour or so with no pain then I'll go a half-hour straight with the pain every other minute. There's no heartburn or any other symptoms like normal indigestion or acid-reflux that I've experienced before and antacids are having zero effect. Never felt this before and I just want to know if its going to get worse and if i should be more concerned.
