OK so 31 yr old female, reasonably healthy, no genetic disorders that i know of..do not drink, smoke, etc.
So about a yr ago (September 2015), i was coughing and turned around and felt intense pain on my upper left side...i could not take a deep breath or breathe in. I took anti inflammatories and recovered in a few weeks time.
3-4 (december 2015, Jan 2016) months later i was doing ab exercises (intense) and reinjured. Again took the anti inflams. Pain is always the same, cant breathe in, hurts like a strong stitch when i breathe in deep.
Then i felt the pain on and off for a few months every time id cough to excess especially after a cold earlier in the year( march?)
Back in July this year i felt it again after getting out of bed suddenly, anti inflams helped.
I came back from my trip in late August this yr and had an ultrasound and they found nothing except for 2 small polyps in my gallbladder (right side) and 1 tiny kidney cyst left side. All organs look fine. I then went for an xray to check for maybe bone damage, all fine. Blood test, fine. Physical exam nothing.
Since the Ultrasound, so September October and November this year, i have noticed a pain stitch like/cramp like AGAIN but now in the upper left and occasionally, upper right side. If i eat more then usual, i experience more pain in those areas. Sometimes the pain is affected by movement (if i exercise, move suddenly or twist)... but its not affected by food (it doesnt matter if i drink alcohol, eat meat, cheese or fat)...
The only thing i can say is in September i took a probiotic and it made me EXTREMELY Bloated and gassy for days so i stopped...but maybe i shouldnt have..maybe it was dead bacteria flushing itself out.
But the pain is there nearly every day, its intermitted though..like right now i dont feel it but if i move or do something odd or press there i may feel it.
It bothered me so i requested a second ultra sound, a second blood test to check for organ function, stool sample and i had an MRI of the entire abdomen... waiting for results for these.
The pain is also not the same as the pains i felt when i couldnt take in breaths...its still a stitch like pain but its like the pain you get when youre exercising only milder.
If these are negative though.. what do i do? The ONLY other conditions that i keep hearing could cause pain like this is peptic ucler , gastritis, H pylori...
But i have NO other symptoms... all of the above mention nausia, vomitting, loose stools...
My stools (providing i eat enough fibre are normal) , i have no nausia , vomitting or fever
What else could this be and could this be in my head now as a result of the previous testing?
