Hi all. After months of various symptoms, tests, bloods, samples etc, I have been diagnosed with DD. The reason for my post is that I don't think this is what is causing my severe pain. I don't have bloating, I'm very regular and normal, the pain is constant, but not made worse by eating etc, and the pain is in my lower right side, but typically pain is felt in left side with DD according to the research I've done. I can feel a small lump which pops, which made me think I had a hernia. When going for the results of my CT scan, the GP basically read out a list of normals and kind of just slipped in DD. I had to say " excuse me, what was that?". I was then told to eat more fibre, but I already follow a really healthy diet, with loads of fresh fruit and veg daily and I have porridge every morning for brekkie. I asked what else could be done for this constant pain that goes from sore to very painful, to keeping me off work for 4 days, which is unheard of for me. He told me painkillers like cocodamol, but they don't even take the edge off it. I honestly don't think I have any sort of gastro problems, but hey, I'm only a layman.
