  1. I have been going through some wierd pains on left side. It is in upper and lower stomach. I feel pressure it travels to my back. I Am scared that it may be my heart. Ruthie
  2. Don't take a chance go to the ER. It could be chondodritis but maybe not. Good luck.

    Hi Ruthie,

    From my own experience just a few weeks ago, don't just pass it off as FM. I was minutes from having a stroke. If you have a good blood pressure machine please check your blood pressure.

    The ER Doc had to stop my heart it was beating so fast.

    I did not even realise that my heart was beating so hard. It started with chest pressure.

    I'll pray for you

  4. Well blood pressure has been fine. This has been going on off and on for 2 weeks. I was told I have gerd now.I think it could be related to my stomach. Ruthie

    Sounds like pancreatitis or enlarged spleen.

    Do you have an active infection or a recent infection where your spleen would be working overtime? Or are you in a viral flare?

    If not, then it sounds like pancreatitis.

    If you want to test this without a doctor, go off all fat of any kind and drink liquids (not a fast). Just no solid foods, no gum, no chewing.

    If you do that for 2 to 3 days, and the pain starts to subside, it is pancreatitis.
