Elastic Band Pain around Stomach Below Belly Button

Posted , 4 users are following.

For OVER one year, I have had Elastic Band Pain around my Stomach, Below my Belly Button. I have had an Endoscopy and Colonoscopy and found nothing. I had double hernia surgery after I thought it was a recurrent hernia but hernia surgery did not stop the pain.

ANYONE else have this elastic band pain feeling like you are being RIPPED IN HALF?

    I had this symptom for 3 years. After about 2 the tops of my thighs started going numb also. I had the lower MRI, colonoscopy and much more. It got real bad and put me in a wheel chair. I finally found out what it was when I went to Mayo clinic, a tumor in my upper spinal cord. I saw 7 doctors before one caught it. If I closed my eyes I would fall over. I guess only 400 of these happen a year. No doctor orders upper MRI's for some reason even tho the nerves that are in the upper thigh are controlled there. It takes 7 to 10 years to get to the point of total paralysis but once it gets to where you have trouble walking it goes fast.
