I have had an issue with my stomach since. December 2nd 2017?

Hello. I have had an issue with my stomach since. December 2nd 2017. Had an endoscopy done last month. Only found gastritis (biopsy was clear…no precancer or h.pylori infection ) and hiatal hernia. Upper middle stomach near rib cage been hurting really bad but now my upper left side is hurting really bad. Can’t eat (wasn’t eat much anyways) and can’t bend over. Now left breast is inflamed all the way in,my arm pit and can’t move my arm at all. What exactly could it be ? Not just gastritis

Hello. In my opinion, your hiatal hernia is producing acid reflux which in effect is causing inflammation of the breast. So hiatal hernia could be the cause. Treatments are available for acid reflux, consult your doctor. Thank you for your question.


The pain is due to acid reflux or GERD only..
The pain in upper middle part of stomach is mostly due to acid reflux only..
Consult a Gastroenterologist and get evaluated..
Antacids, proton pump inhibitors etc can help in improvement..
Also sleep with head slightly raised as compared to feet.
Avoid spicy and acidic foods..
Take probiotics like yogurt..
Take small frequent meals..
Drink sufficient water..

Hope this helps..
