I am a 48 year old female. I am in a pain management program for nerve damage to my brachial plexus and had a Nissan Fundoplication 14 years ago. I have a lump below my sternum that is about 1.5" by 2". I noticed it about 8 weeks ago, but it has gotten larger since. I have severe heartburn and have had a few 3-4 day bouts of vomiting. I have pain in my back at the base of the rib cage usually on the mid left side, but I have also had it on the right of center. I just got over a severe resp. infection that lasted 4 weeks. I am feel like the infection is coming back. I have a foul taste in my throat and have been coughing up small bits of yellow phlem. I am running a fever of 99.6 to 100 most days. I normally am on the low side of normal. I have been getting severe headaches on my right front quarter. I am having a hard time sleeping.
Any thoughts on what could be going on?
I am scheduled for an upper endoscopy at the beginning of June. I just had an ultrasound, but have not gotten the results yet. I am supposed to be going out of the country so I am concerned about what is going on. Any insight would be appreciated.
