chest pain / admonial pain

Can anyone please help or advise me, i have had this chest pain / adominal pain for nearly 1 month and its not getting any better, been back to the doctors lots of times but no answers yet, had a ultra sound today but they did nt do my whole stomach.

It feels like something may be behind my belly button which moves around and pushes up on my chest / sternum area, its so painful and now the painkillers i take tramadol is not working like it did.

I have IBS but never experienced the pain like this before, could it be linked. I also have the Mirena coil and what i can tell the strings are still in place.

Please help

xx nette

Apart from IBS, dyspepsia, pancreatitis, myocardial ischemia (heart attack) and lactase deficiency also need to be ruled out. You need to consult your local doctor about these symptoms and he will conduct a few tests like complete blood counts, cardiac enzymes (CK-MB, LDH, SGOT), and ECG (Electrocardiogram) of the heart, a CT scan of the abdomen, and an Upper GI endoscopy to find out the cause of the pain.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Sounds a bit like the symptoms I had when I had gallbladder disease & had to have surgery. I would see your gastroenterologist and tell them your symptoms, being as specific as possible (i.e. - which side (more left or right of belly button, above or below belly button); any foods, drinks or activities that seem to cause the pain or make it worse (fatty foods/drinks, acidic foods/drinks, exercise, bending over).
Best of luck
