Central Abdominal Pain
Felt Like Crying! Upper Central Abdominal Pain
Dull pain, which felt like nothing more than a bit of gas, began directly under my chest, as I drove home from work... I took a couple of Tums once arriving home.
I had some egg whites for breakfast, a Spinach salad with a grilled turkey burger for lunch and a lo-cal mozzarella cheese stick with some melon for an afternoon snack... about 3 hours prior to this episode.
Pain got progressively worse, turning into sharp, stinging pain. I couldn't do anything to refocus from the pain...I curled up in the fetal position, hoping it would subside, but only got worse.
I went to bed at 8:30, after taking some nausea meds. I have been diagnosed with GERD, but have never felt this type of intense pain. It was pretty scary!
