I've been having abdominal pain since 6 month. It all started in January, with a dull pain for weeks, which then grew into a constant sharp pain.
It's sometimes so unbearable that I had to admit myself 3 times to the ER. My live is on a stop at the moment, can't focus on my work, or my business, can't plan having kids with my wife, because I think I am going to die....
The pain is most of the time in the upper right quadrant, however from time to time the sharp pain occors in the upper left quadrant as well. I have point tenderness, if I press anywhere between the center of my stochmach and center left or right side it hurts! I can also feel the pain sometimes going to the center back.
I've seen a specialist and he thought it could be the kidneys. We did a CT scan and couldn't find anything.
I've done 2 ultrasound scan which only found a fatty liver and I am currently trying to lose some weight in regards to this.
I do have acid-reflux if I eat to much spicy food/fatty food so I've reduced that and the acid-reflux is in control. I've had an endoscopy and stool example taking telling me I have H Pylori. I was on a 1 week medication with antibiotics and anti-acid tablets, which didn't help. However for some reason I can't believe that H Pylori would cause point tenderness.
I don't smoke and I am social drinker with 1 or 2 pints of beer a week.
I've had constipation a while ago, but I got that in conrtol by drinking 2 litres of water and eating more fibre (muesli) a day.
I've asked my GP to referr me back to the specialist, because I am desperate, but he just said 'the specialist is going to laugh if I refer you back, because he didn't find anything'.
I don't know what else I could do. This illness is causing me anxiety and panic attacks, because I don't know what it is and that I could die any moment from it....
