Chronic pain

Hi guys

ive been having bad stomach pain for the last month. I'm starting to get worried about what it is, my doctor said its constipation, but I'm not sure.....

Sometimes the pain comes and goes at certain times in the day, but usually it's all the time. The pain is all around my abdomen to be honest, but today it's in the lower left, and I feel like I'm winded around my upper back and chest. I'm only 16, but I'm just worried that it might be something bad. My stomach hurts all over when I press in one place, but sometimes it doesn't hurt at all? I've been pooing hard balls lately, and a bit of blood came out today which worries me. Also the pain sometimes hurts around my shoulders, and today I woke up all achy...

i have a swollen gland in my neck as well, I'm just wondering if this could be related? 

Any feedback would be soo so appreciated as I'm very worried

    Hi joeyboy7

    Ask your doc for an ultrasound scan or MRI scan to investigate what is going on in your abdomen and upper part of your body...due to you having hard stool this probably has caused an anal fissure and caused a rectal you eat a healthy diet? If not start eating lots of veg and fruit fidh chicken and salad and drink plently of water. Also keep a food diary to see when you get the pain if it coincides with something you are wishes.....

      Good advice Lilian,

      You must have a good Dr - generally speaking if you ask for an MRI they will almost always say CT scan first (after ultrasound). CT is cheaper and actually better at seeing into the abdomen (the nurse in radiology told me this) . The downside is that CT emits radiation

      Hi, well it wasn't my doctor it was a surgeon, as I went to hospital thinking it was my appendix, and he felt around my abdomen and he said he could feel 'stool loading'
