Hi Guys so after 12 weeks and 21 visits to A&E i got my diagnosis. All tests , 15 xrays, 2 abdomen ultrasounds, ct scan, mri small bowel scan, endoscopy (small hiatel hernia) colonoscopy, ct aniogram all clear. Im still having the constant dull ache and sharp stabbing pains on movement, bending, reaching, twisting, when going over speed humps or round corners in car, shortness of breath even through conversation. Then being put on antidepressants because they found nothing else. A surgeon said it was Costocondritis, i then went to out of hours doctor who confirmed it by pressing my sternum in centre of chest. So i still have it. I now can only take paracetamol, voltarol gel and heat pad. Does anyone else have this as mine causes upper abdomen pain too and im struggling to manage my kids (im a carer for one) and i lost 2 stone in weight. What else can i use please
