Moving on from my previous post, I've seen an upper GI consultant this afternoon about my pain. He's double checked the ultrasound and there's no stones, doesn't think it's an ulcer as I've been taking meds which would have improved the pain. So now thinking sphincter of oddi although he says this is unlikely because it is so rare!
He's ordered a tonne of blood tests and is sending me for an MRI and then HIDA scan. If it's not this he says it's medical and I will have to go down the allergies or IBS route. So it seems this will all take a good few months, and I have to stay in constant every day pain, bloatedness and nauseousness!
Is sphincter of oddi very rare?
