Can ulcer pain be felt middle back (around bra strap) and upper middle abdomen?
I was sent for an ultra sound, came back i had one large stone and a few smaller ones, and sludge.
My pain in upper center abdomen (between ribs and slightly down towards belly button(not to the belly button tho) and pain in my back (around bra strap area) and sometimes only left side. Its throbs sometimes (like a heart beat)
Some days i feel fine for 3-4 days (meaning, no omg i am SO uncomfortable and tired of this pain feeling) then the rest of the week, its a dull ache or just plain old pain.
I do not think there is any burning. I never suffered from Heartburn, only had reflux a few times my whole life. Nothing since June (since i have been experiencing this)
Surgeon said my gallbladder symptoms were A typical. I asked him if i did not have stones, what could i also have? He suggested an Ulcer. But said, if he thought i did have that, he would do an endoscopy on me first.
Well crap, Atypical doesnt make me feel any better
Makes me worry more.
Since i do not have insurance it is a big deal to make sure i pick the right thing first, to help with my pain. I know 50-50 shot huh?
