Lower right abdominal pain

Posted , 6 users are following.

I am a 23 year old male.  Approx 2 years ago, I started having really bad lower right abdominal pains.  I went to emergency (3 times ) and ran all kinds of tests.  Blood tests, urine tests, did an endonoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI, Cat Scan, seen a urologist, surgeon, gastro specialist. All my tests come out with no obvious signs of problems. They have given me a really high dosage of antibiotic and still did not help anything.  So here we are 2 years later and still same thing.  I will explain whats happening:  I am pretty well kept in shape.  So when the pain starts to develop, I can feel it start to bubble down there.  I start doing my own therapy.  Massaging, yoga, physical therapy.  Does ok for awhile.  I have a job now that requires me to drive about 45 minutes there and back.  My job is hard labor.  I am fine driving there, then when I start working... Boom! Sets it off again. I can feel like something bubbling, then the pain kicks in.  Not sure what to do, since all these doctors/specialists cannot find anything wrong.  What next?

    Have you had stool tests done and an ultrasound?  Do you have change in bowel habit? Go back to your doctor and ask for these tests if they have not been done.  Ask about the possibility of IBS.  If the symptoms start when you are working, maybe stress is causing it.  Stress and IBS are linked.

      Yes. I've had a couple of stool samples. It would get so bad that I would poop blood. They ruled out IBS. Working out is a stress reliever for me. My job is a good workout. What seems to set it off is sitting for a long period of time (driving to work) then twisting and bending just right, like shovel snow. One time I woke up, got out of bed with a twist and felt it irritate.

    Hey there, I have the same problem for 3 weeks now. I was freaking out about appendictis and I still do but I guess it would've happened by now. I asked a doctor and he said it might have something to do with the muscles there, or a strained tendon or something. Maybe it's that,as you said you work out a lot,and your job is hard too.
