Hi there..I have been having severe pain in my right upper abdominal pain, blood test came normal except that I have iron deficiency and anemic. Doctor suggests iron deficiency can cause muscle cramps, but the right side abdominal pain is frequent and unbearable. Also I get burps all the time and usually once a week i have severe acitidty(acid reflux). Doctor wont refer me for ultrasound as blood test came out normal. I am in pain daily. Can gases cause such pain? or is it any other issues. Any advice would be helpful.

I have been given iron supplements too and blood test show thyroid problem too. GP just gave referral for ultrasound of thyroid but i see no connection with the abdominal pain.
but its getting gp to refer you, l also understand the feeling that your not getting help and left to it. Have you someone in your family, or a good friend who can go into gps with you, sometimes help if someone else can support you, we dont always feel at our strongest when we go to gps due to health problems. But if bad l think it ok to go back to a and e, theyll at least know its not a one off, and might scan you there. Best wishes.
I did go to ER one night as the pain was so bad I thought I was having a heart attack and they did all kinds of test and said I had a real bad case of GERD. If your GP won't do the tests I would go to the ER if it gets that bad. You shouldn't have to suffer because your blood test is normal.
I hope you get some relief soon.
I did go to ER too one night when the pain got too bad but all they did was give me 5 to 6 pain killers panadiene and what not, which made me feel drowsy and advised me to see the GP next morning and get referral for ultrasound. Noone seems to help.
When people write on the forum regarding severe acid reflux, heartburn and pain HPylori immediately comes to mind as these are the three main symptoms of HPylori. If HP is not dealt with it can lead on to gastric ulcers. Go back to your doc and ask for a breath test, stool test or endoscopy. A blood test for HP is not always reliable. .....best wishes for a speedy diagnosis...
