    Burning sensation below left rib cage

    I had my Nissen 7 years ago and it's worked quite well on the reflux. I do get "dumping" every now and then but watching my diet helps. Lately, though, I have had a burning sensation in my left side below my rib cage but only when I sleep on that side (not during waking hours when I am up and about). I'm wondering if it might be gas. I had a sonigram and everything looks fine. Has anyone experienced these symptoms?

    It could very well be gas, or it can be gallbladder related....although your gallbladder is actually towards the right center, you can get pain on the left side as well...its called Referred pain.

    When my gallbladder went bad, that was where I had pain- and in my back the night before my surgery. Talk to a GI doctor about a HIDA test to rule out any gallbladder issues.
