Surgery 2008. Abdominal pain like so many I just read about. Left side, feels like a squeeze at first, hard to breathe, then severe muscle like pain just under ribs.. feels like it creeps to other side. Been to GI Dr. nothing, had exploratory surgery to see if hernia. Only found a few areas of intestines attached to wall, corrected. Have had that pain since, so not intestine attachments! Only thing I do now is apply heat and take a muscle relaxant will subside. issues now are feeling nauseous or gas bloating which can be so painful!!!! nice to hear I'm not making this up!
