Post pain in upper left back after eating???

Lately I have been experiencing a little pain in my upper left back after a meal. Is this related to a stomach problem??

Of course, I am not a doc, so you will need to have this looked at. However, I do suffer from alot of tummy ailments so maybe this will help.

One night a few years ago at work, I couldn't hardly stand up from the pain in my upper left side, right below the breast bone. It started in the front and wrapped its way around to the back. After much ado (about nothing it turns out) in the ER a few hours and an Xray later, they determined I had a large pocket gas trapped in the upper quandrant of my large intestine. Apparently, there is some syndrome where this does occur, although for the life of me, I cannot remember what it is called. I did see my Xray, and it looked like I had swallowed a small balloon.
Since yours is in the back however, you shouldn't rule out a possible kidney infection, depending on where it hurts. Definitely get checked out.

Hi Linda
Thanks for your response. I have had alot of tests but not much in the way of stomach tests. The doctor also mentioned gas pockets and that is what it does feel like. Someone blowing up a balloon in certain areas.

Try taking a digestive enzyme supplement to help with digestion. Most of the time, bad digestion is the cause of gas anyway.
