dull ache under left side of chest for 6yrs, turned vegan and it went but watch

    • Thread Starter

    Ive had a dull ache for many years and never went to the doctor about it because I just didnt really, it usually comes at night time or after eating and I would have to lay on my side with my arm over my head to reduce the ache.

    However when I went vegan last month the pain disappeared and I was surprised and last night I ate some cheese in a meal and it did come back slightly. I feel really weird about it thats why I never have been to see the doctor because I dont get any other symptoms I dont think and my mum used to say it was because I was fat but I lost alot of weight and it still remains.

    Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? I am very confused, dont just say go see your gp because that doesnt offer any new advice. I dont want to waste mine or their time by going for something when they will probably say its nothing

    Sounds like heartburn.
