I am at my wits end, my symptoms are such a mystery and I wish I could find some answers. My doctors don't have a clue, so I was hoping some kind poeple on here could read this discussion & maybe shed some light on this/me. I have pain that comes in cycles/flares, I have a constant pain which is achey/twinges in the upper central abdomen, about 2 inches above my belly button. My pain will last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, then magically starts to lessen & then disappears, this is why I call it flares. I have had all the tests a few years back. Ultrasound, endoscopy, colonoscopy, tested for celiac etc... My pain is constant, it does very in intensity through the day, but it's always there, smack dab in the middle of my upper abdomen. Nothing I eat makes it worse or better, bowels are soft than hard, so i was told it's ibs. But why would ibs come and go like this? I can sometimes go months and be fine, but when it does happen, I have it for weeks/months and it is relentless. The only thing my ultrasound ever showed was a fatty liver (which I have been told is not the source of my pain) and if even I did think it was this, my pain is central, not to the right (where your liver is) My endoscopy a few years back only showed mild inflamation, could these be gastritis attacks? Any info/input would be greatly appreciated...thanks
