Does it hurt after you eat? There is something called the splenic flexure there. I have an enlarged spleen and sometimes get pain and gas there.

Is it sudden? Does it go on and off? Hurt after you eat? I get pain underneath my breasts, mostly my right one though. My mom thinks it's just because I'm a D cup but I think it's gas related.

Not that long ago I ate about a pound of peanuts and ended up with the worse stomach pains.

Yeah, that'll do it. Very common reaction, nothing to worry about, try to eat less peanuts.

The ancient Greek word hypochondria means pain under the chondria or ribs.  Just something to think about.  It's quite common for HA sufferers.

You can do a search, but the meanings of the Greek words are clear: "hypo" under and "chondria" the holding together of the ribs.

I have this sometimes - I ended up being diagnosed with acid reflux and esophagitis which was exacerbated by stress, haha. So basically, I would eat something fatty/greasy/unhealthy, and I already have a genetic predisposition to have acid reflux fairly badly (dad and mom have digestive issues including acid reflux), and then I'd be spending my afternoon with funky pain in my upper left abdomen. I thought I had the weirdest things (and most terrifying) but I ended up being diagnosed after getting an endoscopy and bloodwork done to rule other things out. Now I occasionally take 15 mg of Prevacid and it clears the issue right up until the next time I stress/eat poorly. Evaluate your diet and when the pain occurs, this may give you some clues as to what is going on.

Can stress really cause real physical symptoms or atleast feel real?....seems like its not possible
