Intensely bad burning in stomach help!?

Posted , 7 users are following.

For the past 10 months, I have been suffering from this awful burning in my gut. Followed by random sharp pains all throughout it. It also radiates to my sides and back and stings real bad. sad guys I'm at a loss of words. I've lost my job, I'm too sick to attend college and I can barely go out with my friends. I've had an endoscopy, which came back as normal with mild gastritis. A cat scan that was normal of my abdomen and a normal ultra sound. Also had a hida scan and a gastric emptying test. Stool sample and blood tests ALL normal.. I'm only 19, I'm healthy I'm not a heavy drink nor do I smoke and I workout regularly. I do not know what to do guys. My parents are acting like it's all in my head.. It's not. I can physically feel it and it's ruining my life. Can someone please suggest something I've also tried natural supplements that were useless..

    Nerve pain?

    You would need to see a pain specialist.

    The pain is real, very real!

    The trialed pain treatment/meds needs months to kick in if it does at all, so you better get going asap please. 

    It's good to have had normal med test results, but it is very frustrating when nothing is found since there is nothing in your hands to grip it, tackle it, know it. Tests can miss things for sure, too, of course, sometimes the road is a long one if it is something rare, yet again a pain specialist after many tests and time worth a trial, too. It's chronic pain

    It's not in your head actually, peripheral nerve endings can cause huge havoc, going on firing even they needed to stop. Sometimes it's 'in your head' by the processing of pain in brain, but still: the feeling of pain is real!

    Best of luck!!

    Since everything has come out normal apart from gastritis, has IBS been mentioned?  You could also ask for PPI medication for the gastritis.
