View Full Version : IBS and chest discomfort

01-24-2014, 03:39 PM
Four months ago, I had my gallbladder taken out because it was working at 22%. My back pain went away but I was having chest pains and burping all the time. I still have the chest pain, which has lessened a lot, and the burping. I was diagnosed with IBS at the start of this and it came out of nowhere. I dont understand it. Can IBS cause the chest discomfort? It seems to get worse when I have a flare up or when I eat too much or not enough. If I skip a meal, I burp and hurt in my gut. All I drink is water and get normal exercise. Also, the chest discomfort will also be on the left side of my left breast, under my armpit. And the chest discomfort is located under the left breast and to the right of, left of the sternum.
