After a colonoscopy and an edospcopy which showed nothing, I still have the annoying sense of achiness in the upper left quadrant,
slightly to the side of the esphogeal opening to the stomach. Ive been told that I have a slight hiatal hernia. Does anyone relate to this along with an on and off sensation of fullness and/or nausea? Thanks for your input folks!

Actually I have felt this on occasion as well. It feels like a dull ache. What I am experiencing more however is chest pain, especially after I eat. Have you felt this at all?

Thanks for responding JSantos-
I don't paticularly exerience chest pains, except upon occasion when there may be acid reflux. And, yes, it is like a dull ache.
This business is frustrating eh?

Be well.

It sure is frustrating, I have been through all and even surgery which I think made my conditio worst. However, I have been taking Peppermint Oil Capsules. They seem to help a bit. Regards.

You sound so distraught. I'm sorry that you are in so much pain. I read your message on the board too and I wish I could offer you something tangible. As it is all I can offer is my best wishes for your peace.
