Little back story- I am 24 years old and slim, eat a healthy diet etc, about 2 months ago I started to develop a really uncomfortable sharp pain in my right side - particularly prominent at night and in the mornings. I tried to amend my diet to no avail and ended up at the Drs, who suggested gastritis, however an endoscopy revealed my stomach was fine. Since then the pain has persisted, my stool is mostly normal, sometimes a little pale with undigested food and occasionally burns, but MOSTLY a healthy colour and with no blood. I have a huge amount of gurgling under my ribs and the sharp pain sometimes extends to my left side and other parts of my abdomen, where I feel a pinching and tugging sensation. My stomach is not swollen or painful to touch, when I press down I feel a popping sensation. The pain ebbs and flows, but has been constant in the right side for the last three days- it feels like a cat is sitting in there scratching me from within. I also have intermittent nausea that is relieved by burping. No painkillers work. I will also say that under my breasts is very tender, If i press down on the skin under my breast- it feels very sore- particularly when I'm experiencing the pain, It's almost quite satisfying to press down on. I have no fever and my head is clear. Over this past 2 months I have not lost any weight, but nausea has made me lose my appetite at points. At this point I am really afraid, I'm scared something very sinister is going on. I have had a CT scan, but yet to hear the results. Can anyone help me in the meantime? I'm really tired of the pain and discomfort.
