Hello all, I wonder if anyone can help shed any light on my pain. I've had an achey pain in my right side for the last 2 years, if I stick 2 fingers in my right side right under the bottom rib that's where the pain is, very specific and in that area, occasional I get an ache in between my breastbone and occasional stomach ache, sometimes severe. I've drunk heavily for the last 20 years but cut right down in the last year or so, (I'm overweight 16 stone and 5 foot 10 male) the pain sometimes radiates to my back, some days it's there other days it clears up, if I drink too much it flares up but spicy food or fat doesn't seem to make it worse or better nor does normal drinking on occasion. I had an ultrasound done last year, which came back normal, liver tests have been normal, kidney tests ok and I've been tested for H Pylori and that came back clear. Last week I had a Gastroscopy and that came back clear, I do suffer with excess acid, the doc put me on Lansaprozole but that hasn't helped the pain and as I had to stop taking them for a fortnight before the Gastroscopy and I didn't feel any difference and the acid didn't get any worse I've stopped taking them. I'm going back to the Doc's this week to see about further tests, does this sound like Pancreatitis or gall bladder, oh, I do have loose stools and go to the toilet at least a couple of times a day, sometimes more. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.
