I have doctors looking at this but just wanted to see if I might be missing something.
A couple of weeks ago I had an attack of something when I laid down for bed. Pain was right side (front), under right rib (near gallbladder), just below sternum (felt like sawing), back pain center of back and out. Took some naproxen, didn't feel like a heart attack (might have been but EKG a couple of days later seems to have been normal). It stayed around for 2 days then lightened up and I stopped the naproxen and started with the doctors.
I do have an endoscopy / colonscopy (apparently I'm overdue by a few months) scheduled.
The thing that bothers me the most (but doctors don't seem to care much about) is that there is a tightness under the ribs when I exercise. I've had this for a year plus and kind of just put it off as stress / anxiety. I was not long ago doing 5.5 mile run / walks up and down hills and now short walks tighten this area up. I can walk about a mile before it tightens up.
On Sunday, I got on the exercise bike (3 sets, relatively short) everything kind of hurt. I was also having PVC's like crazy and fairly strong as the pain built up. Pain, which leads to stress, was possibly triggering them. And now the weird part, about 3:00 I had a bowl of cabbage, and a naproxen. At 5:00 things normalized, the PVC's stopped and the pain lightened a lot (naproxen takes awhile to kick in so maybe that).
The GI didn't think gallstones after the ultrasound, and labs, but we'll know more next week after the fun time. The GP/Internist/Cardiologist (not board certified) didn't seem too worried about a heart attack.
I just know, not fun.... At least it's easy to talk to a doctor right now.
