    That happened to me, even after gallbladder removed still get pain, nobody can explain it, then diagnosed with fibromyalgia, don't know if any of that helps, however you have to be persistent with doctors, tend to be fobbed off. Good luck

    Hi. I had the same. After endoscopy found gastritis so pain still there. The pain is like stinging burning stitch type pain and goes from my left kidney round to my side. Had bloods done and apart from low folic acid and vety low vitamin D all is ok. Had abdominal scan and all organs are normal. Have been referred to rheumatologist as GP says I have fibromyalgia and these symptoms are part of that condition. Hope you get some better news

My disc disease in my back it seems that I had 2 bulging discs in my thoracic area,so they shot me up with cortisone nd so far so good.I still have to rest ND let it work,but I do feel better than before. I'M just hoping it continues nd I move forward!! Good luck with you nd I'll keep you in my prayers.

    I have degenerative disc disease, and have had several surgeries,ended up with spinal fusion.

    I have had pain in my left side for years, never goes, and the longer I stand up trying to do things the worse it gets.Yes, just like a stitch that never goes. I have inflammation of my spinal nerves, and think this is just one of the effects of that.

      Hi,

      My disc disease is in my lumbar spine I have arthritis in my cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.

      Over the years I have had so many lots of spinal injections and none have helped, and I have found them so painful.

      I am glad you have had some relief and hope this will be the answer for you.

    So are you suggesting that it could be something to do with my back, because I've told the doctors when I was a bit younger I damaged my back, but not one doctor has done any tests or even any notice of it, it's hard enough getting them to listen to you. Most of the time they have me diagnosed even before they see me, thanks toryg

      Taking more bloods and put me on another course of ante biotics yawn yawn! He at first said there was nothing else they could try and I told him that I wasn't leaving until he helped in some way because pain was ridiculous, that's when he tiredly took bloods big disappointment , looking to change doctors because they are hopeless. Fibromyalgia is the worst condition ever!!!!! Thanks for asking cheers

      Getting a dr to listen to you is half the battle,I went through that too ,all they wanted to do is say muscle strain take muscle relaxers. I then decided to get another opinion that's when they took the time to examine me ND do the necessary test,that is when it was discovered that it wasn't just a pulled muscle, degenerative disc disease... good luck trish
