The pain is so severe that it makes it difficult to breathe. The heartburn started happening this past summer, and then sometime last semester, I started getting really intense stomach pain. It may be totally unrelated, but for the last few years, I've been getting excruciating pain located in my chest and sides, but it hurts most when it's nearest to my heart. It happens at seemingly random times of the day, and of the month, but it literally knocks the wind out of me. But so far as I can tell, the pain in my stomach usually only happens right after I wake up for class. When it's really bad, I stay home or go in late because it doubles me over even though I'm already laying down and the only relief I can get has been from sleeping it off by staying extremely still. Usually, it's a very concentrated pain in my sternum area that's usually constant and throbs a lot like a really bad headaches. I had it again this morning when I woke up, only it was different this time because the pain seemed to move all inside my stomach, and it's a sharp, hot pain that just makes you want to clutch your stomach, cry, and when really really bad, scream. I don't know what's going on, but I'm wondering if anyone knows what it could be before I go in to see a doctor on campus. On another note, I think for the last couple of weeks, I've been experiencing UTI-like symptoms, so I'm getting really concerned. I'm really trying not to be a baby about this, but the pain is really starting to affect my physical and emotional well-being. All help is appreciated.

Do you know of any female reproductive problem in your family. During menstration does the pain get worse or better. You're pain sounds like Dysmenorrhoea, but you're doctor would have to make that diagnosis. I would see you're Ob/Gyn first. If you're Ob/Gyn rules out any problems with your reproductive system, I'd see a GI doctor.0
