For the past year now I have been having really bad pains in the upper middle and right hand side of my abdomin like someone is stabbing me. It is tendor to touch (no pain on the left) and cant sleep properly on my right hand side as it is too sore to lean on, feel nauseous most of the time, have the pain when I eat and when I dont eat (feel like I cant win). I cant do any excerise as it makes it worse, I have been losing and putting back on aroung 5kg ever so often and have had to take a few days off work when it has been really bad. It is taking over my life and getting me really down!
I have been for all the tests MRI, CT, HIDA, endoscopdy, colonoscopy, ultrasound, blood works etc etc and they have all come back clear yet the pain is getting worse as the year as went on and still going. All the doctors are trying to blame it all on my IBS, which I have had since I was 18, but I have never had any pains like this in the 10 years that I have had and not had any bad episodes with it in years as I have learned to manage it. I know my own body and I know it is NOT the IBS and wish people would listen to me!! However, 2 of the GP's that I have seen have both told me that all the tests can come back clear but my gallbladder will still be chronic and will propbably need to get it removed. I have tried even medication under the sun from anti-acids, nerve pain, ulcer medication and not currently just on tramadol to manage the pain, although it does not take the pain away but dulls it enough for me to go about my day to day life and be able to sleep.
Has anyone been through this and got anywhere futher than I have? What was the outcome? Any advise would be helpful.
