Hi all,I haven't posted for a while it was just last night I really thought I was having a heart attack the pain was horrendous so I went into bed and lucky enough fell asleep. This morning the pain I have all down my left side is really sore. I also get pain after I eat and als have to go to the toilet as my stomach really hurts. Has anybody else experienced this.
Should I go to the doctor??: Hi all,I... - British Liver Trust

Yes, go to the doctor. Any unexplained pain that is so bad needs investigating.
Thank you Airshirek much appreciated.x
You are saying you felt you were having a heart attack the first thing you should do is get to hospital. What if it was/is a heart attack? Get checked out.
It was that bad I was going to call an ambulance but was scared I would be wasting their time
If it's that bad and you felt it might be a heart attack then no you are not wasting anyones time (only potentially your own). That's exactly what 999 is for ........ extreme pain needs assessing professionally. Its the stubbed toe calls and the not getting the right meal at McDonalds that are the wasting time calls.
Get checked out today, better safe than sorry.
Well said katie
Thank you Katie for your advice. I don't no what to do because that pain has gone apart from the pain at the right side.x
What can I call 111 for?
Call 111 if:
you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency.
you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
you need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
See the doc.... yes
Thank you Laura.x
I'd still see your doctor and tell him/her about this pain. A few years ago a co-worker was having really bad pain in her back. She knew that I always had co-codamol in my bag so she asked me for some and carried on working. A couple of weeks later she had to go to the hospital for a pre-op where they found that she'd had a heart attack! Her only pain had been in her back so don't assume that heart attacks cause excruciating pain in your chest. The pain can also be in your jaw and neck.
Take care. Deb
I can't say anything more than others have said. I hope you get the right help as soon as possible and that you're feeling better soon. Thinking of you.
Thank you Shazzje.X
Yes please go to the Doctor. Hopefully it won’t be anything serious but best to be sure. Next time don’t go to sleep if you are unwell you should always get to the hospital.
Def needs to be seen by a doctor but what you are describing could very well be a symptom of a GI problem like GERD
What's GERD ?.x
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD. Doctors believe that some people suffer from GERD due to a condition called hiatal hernia. In most cases, GERD can be relieved through diet and lifestyle changes; however, some people may require medication or surgery.
Hi , I had the same thing , felt like a heart attack right side pain right under the rib, it was a gallbladder attack . Worse pain ever! I had to have my gallbladder removed , I feel so much better . Doctor sent me for an abdominal ultrasound . , that’s how it was diagnosed . Please get checked out, hope you feel better soon!
You should go to the hospital immediately..
Yes, I agree, get to hospital soon.
I had heard and hernia. I had an opportunity called fundoplication, it worked wonders for my gerd
At least that was sorted. Take care Lynne
Sounds to me like you might have pancreatitis.
I have chronic pancreatitis as part of my portal vein thrombosis and liver damage. I know it hurts like hell.
A blood test will show if your bloods are ok or not and that is always a good starting point.
Not what you're looking for?
