Hello I have had this pain for around 6 to 8 years it really affects my life style can't work can't move off the sofa when it starts and when it's not so severe it's still their making me not want to move about I find a comfortable spot and try move as little as possible all my doctors are never intrested and always sent me away with ibs treatments even when it got bad I was turned away from hospitals several times even tho I could Bearley walk or talk everything becomes a really big challenge it seems to be getting more frequent and worse they diagnosed me with ibs last year but I don't think it is then a few weeks ago I was rushed in to hospital this time they went to discharge me and I was sick a few times I'm sure because they gave me to much drugs they put camera down my throat and found a 4cm hernia pushing on my diafram gastritis Duodenitis my doctor is concerned about my liver function test abnormal for bilirubin I think sitting about 45 for the last few months since he tested it and hasn't done any more tests the hospital sent me home afterwards with omeprazole and things haven't changed I was in so much pain just the other day two weeks gone after hospital I would have rather been shot I just don't know what to do anymore I am trying everything hopefully someone knows and can help a little the pain is usually on my right hand side but when it's bad it feels like all over an un describible pain nothing takes it away I get dizzy sometimes lose my appetite can't think properly through the pain I guess it's getting so frustrating I am only 24 and I'm losing jobs and loads of time I will never get back please help if you have any ideas on what underlying causes could do this

    I am sorry you are going through this. What type of tests were done to diagnose your pain? Is your pain dull, under the ribs? Any bowel issues? Ultrasound?

      I had an ultrasound they said that was clear then I got the endoscopy they discovered the hernia gastritis Duodenitis the pain is from just above my hip to under my ribs it's quite a dull pain I do get bowel issues sometimes I feel like I have to go but nothing been a while since I had that I never ever have the runs stools are basically all ways hard and lumpy sometimes droplets like rabbits and i am usually quite frequent once ever few days or so but when I get sore a don't really eat or move for days literally went a whole week a few weeks back so toilet routine brakes up for a while afterwards

      Alexander, push for abdominal MRI, you may have a sluggish gallbladder like me... Is your bm ever lighter in color, also the pain maybe just that what was found on endoscopy, believe it or not!

    Hi Alexander

    I don't reply to often to the forums but do keep up to date when I have medical students looking to see symptoms etc

    I am a professional medical practitioner working in a busy A and E also work with colonoscopies and gastric medicine

    It would be great if you could let us know direct conjugated bilirubin levels and indirect up conjugated levels in your blood as the values when added together make the elevated total bilirubin levels in conjungated with high direct and high non direct levels which can indicate liver problems but other tests testing enzymes together with morning levels evening levels then other questions like are you on medication what do you drink in a week etc 45 is still pretty low but I would go back and get other tests done to dirt out your issues you say it's on the right hand side which is where your liver gallbladder Colin small colon is your liver hasent any pain receptors do it won't be that but please do go back and see your doctor for fill follow up

    Hiya

    i too have constant stomach pains, had diarrhoea every day now for about 5 weeks, can't eat much and can't exercise as I'm too sore. My brother has chrons disease and it took 10 years for them to diagnose him, he says my symptoms are exactly like his, GP gives me omeparazole and sends me away. I saw a gastroenterologist in September, waited 10 weeks for the appointment and it lasted 10 mins. Specialist said cause is bad luck and my genes 😳 so that was helpful. I can't wear a bra either because anything tight near my stomach kills me, it's terrible and I don't know what to do. Just know that you are not alone,p in the struggle to get better and a decent response from a dr.

      Hi katmaha i cant wear any jeans or boxers that are too tight hurts bad. seems to be more and more I am hearing everyone being treated poorly when it's affecting people's lives for years it just shouldn't be like this 10 years is a long time considering it's their job to find these things think if anyone took ten years to investigate something they would be fired before they got too a year

      Hi alexander

      I have been suffering from abdominal pains, unable to eat properly etc. for 17 months now & have had all kinds of tests like 4 endoscopies, 2 Ct scans, barium swallow tests, numerous blood tests, ultra scans & many stool tests. Only have found gastritis, duodenitis & small hiatal hernia & have been told to live with it as nothing can be done. Surely there must be a cause as you rightly say & they have no answers for any of us, this does have a massive affect on our lives and this is never taken into consideration. The gastroenterologists just tells me its all in my head!!! These so called experts are suppose to find the cause but they are not interested in us at all. They just fill their time & interested in money, total waste of time going to them now. I have just left it to GOD to help me. All the best to you.

      I wouldn't give up just yet just takes finding a decent doctor who actually listens and looks up your history to decide on further steps negligence isn't acceptable.
