Hi everyone, I really hope I can find some answers or information/advise here.  I have been havin stomach problems for almost a year and a. It now. It started off with pain and burning around the diaphragm area and a feeling of dullness in the pit of my stomach. Could not tolerate many foods. Was referred to a gastroenterologist and a scope was done.  Was diagnosed with H.pylori bacteria and hiatus hernia. I was treated and for a while I felt a little better. Not to long after I started having pain again and bloating etc and pain on right side flank. First I was told it was colitis then I was told it's IBS. I'm at my wits end. The right side abdominal flank pain is getting progressively worse. It feels almost like a pulling/stretching or poking under the skin, kinda internally. It is really freaking me out. Anyone else experiencing anything similar? I would appreciate any input. Thank you

    Wish I could get/give a cogent response,

    My issues, r side primarily, abdomen feels bloated, started with urinary issues, strange pain sort of sensation, R lower quadrant, have had every test known, all OK; thinking abdominal adhesions, but surgeon does not want to do the procedure. WHAT NEXT? ?

      Mine is also right lower, but I always put that down to my fibroid as apendicitis was ruled out.  So I have been assuming the lower right pain is unrelated to the pain going from there  upward. Who knows what's next. Just so sick of not knowing. Want a definitive answer.

    I would get tested for h pylori again which can be resistant to antibiotics or can go away and then cone back again.

      Have thought about that. I have an appointment with my gastroenterologist on Thursday, so will mention that. Thanks for the reply

      I lost faith in doctors after three and a half months of no diagnosis.  Eventually, I found a doctor who recognised my symptoms as IBS.

      I have also been diagnosed with IBS, but I sometimes think it is a cop out blanket diagnosis when they are having trouble making a diagnosis. Synical I know...but that is how despondent I have become.

      IBS is a genuine diagnosis.  Tey to accept your IBS and you will be bettwr able to cope with it.  I accepted my IBS once I was diagnosed and my symptoms dramatically improved.

    So, ANYONE; I do understand the complications with doing a surgery to remove abdominal adhesions, but I was under the impression that (because the abdomen needs to be expanded for the procedure) there was "a better method " than just pumping air in; anyone know

    specifically to what I am referencing? Thanks much.
