Thanks for replying to my post. I don't know what to believe anymore from doctors. I have the pain below the breasts but I don't have symptoms that are typically associated with ulcers or gastric. In the past 2 months that this has been going on I have not vomitted, felt nauseated or burping. I'm waiting for results from an upper gi that I did 3 weeks ago. I have heard fms sufferers to complain of pain in the ribs below the breasts and thats where I feel it, not in my stomach. This disease is so damm confusing and it really plays around with your mental state. I appreciate your input on this matter and hope to chat with you soon. Tess. P.S. I had blood work done which apparently can show ulcers and it came back negative.
