Is it just pain, or do you have severe vomiting or something? this
sounds like a "little" thing I have called COSTOCHONDRITIS, the
inflammation of the chondra around the ribs. Eating too much
and having tight clothing makes that inflame and it feels
like a heart attack, or stomach stuff, but it's the insides
pressing on the lower ribcage that is really the problem.
VERY painful, but is not serious. Suggest that to the doc. I have it
when my stomach is too full, or too gassy (stop bubbly drinks
and gassy foods and see if it's better) Watch out for
very tight clothes around your waist. Mine comes and
goes, for years now, coughing makes it happen sometimes,
if I have bronchitis or something, and overeating with
tight clothes or eating beans and cokes and things
just KILLS me. SO I am very careful.
