I've been suffering from lower abdominal discomfort and pain for months now, and no one's been able to make it stop or figure out exactly why it's happening. I started noticing persistent lower abdominal discomfort in December of last year. Had an abdo x-ray, had an endoscopy. I have IBS-C and they chalked me up to those kind of things.
In April, I started getting a burning skin pain feeling in the exact area of my usual discomfort. It hasn't let up since. The only time it goes away is when I've been on vacation or house sitting for my parents. If I'm able to take my mind fully off it, the symptoms are lessened. Otherwise, it's from the time I wake up to when I go to bed.
There's no rash, there's never been a rash. But no one knows what to make of me. When I put heat on the area, anymore, it gets itchy. I just had bloodwork done by my PCP a few weeks back and it was all perfect. Is it possible to get a raging case of internal shingles and not have it go away or present with rash?
The pain is in the middle of my lower abdomen, 2-3" below my navel. It probably radiates in a circumfrence of about 3" total....
I'm so desperate to find exactly what's wrong with me - beyond anxiety and my usual bowel issues of constipation (got put on Celexa 20 MG about a month and a half ago but it hasn't worked intensely well for me yet)...
