Long term problem about right side of the body, pains, numbness burning up etc

Edited , 1 user is following.


My wife has had a problem in the right side of her body since many years. It all started with a sharp pain in the right side of her stomach. It was a sharp continuous pain especially when touching it. It felt like an wound and also at the time of pain she had burning in hands and feet. The doctors did a bunch of test and that concluded nothing. The excruciating pain went on for years. But then she realized after years that the pain attacks start when ever she carries weights on her right shoulders (like a laptop bag or hand bag). Since then we avoided her carrying any weights. But there have been random pain attacks now and then.  It's always on the right side, like right leg toes going numb of right hand  fingers going numb(especially pinky and ring fingers).

Also, she always had trouble with her right ovary every alternate month she has trouble with her periods, alternate months her period is irregular and even when trying to get pregnant by IUI and IVF we always had trouble timing it correctly. 

Recently we were pregnant (but had to terminate due to heart malformation detected after 6 months of pregnancy) and during the delivery they gave her epidural and even then she felt that left half of her body got numb quicker but right was always less numb(she felt less heaviness in right legs).

Now 2 weeks after the delivery she started getting pain in right ear and in right side of neck(between throat and cheek - somewhere close to sub-mandibular gland). The house doctor suggested taking paracetamol but we have taken it already for more than 2 weeks, the pain goes away after paracetamol 1g but comes again in a few hours.

The pain is similar to abdominal pain from 2 years back. It again feels like a wound, feels superficial excruciating pain when touching.

We always suspects that either

  1. there is clot somewhere which keeps travelling around causing the pain(from reading over internet)
  2. There is a problem in her nervous system.

Now with Corona tests and doctors are getting even difficult to approach and we are clueless what could the problem be.

It's always the right side of the body and we have no clue what to do about it. Please please please suggest.

PS:- I don't know if it is relevant or not, she always had a low iron, B12 and vitamin D. The GP suggested to take oral medication of vitamin D 25000 IU but it never helps in increasing the levels. One doctor suggested that it's possible she doesn't have carriers to absorb vitamin D  from food/medication. Then he gave her 6,00,000 IU via an injection on her bum and Iron by IV and that seems to raise the levels properly , he suggested we do this at least once an year.
