Undiagnosed pain

Posted , 3 users are following.


Not sure what's going on. I use to get severe pain in the gallbladder region urq. Specifically an inch below right ribs and a a depth into abdomen about an inch also.

Now I'm just getting an ache in the muscles in that area, sometimes it feels like it's even in the skin or fat layer.

For years I've heard gallbladder from doctors, once they've said pancreatic issues, but changed their minds back to gallbladder and IBS as pain is in right side in a 10 pence size area, recently doctors have mentioned IbS again and more but are happy to say we just don't know...grrrrrr!

It seems to shallow for Any of the above anyway.

The pain use to be a 10, were I acctually have been to A&E, now it's more of a day to day discomfort, but I am aware of it and it's not knowing what the he'll it is that's driving me nuts.

Could it be something wrong with the abdomen wall etc.

All my blood tests are normal except cholesterol which is slightly elevated 5.5 and I feel very healthy.

Has anyone been on this journey with undiagnosed pain discomfort in this area and had an answer that fits.

Any light shed on location or diagnosis that your sure is correct would really help.

    I went through the same thing. It was chronic pancreatitis for me. If its cp its common for your blood test to be normal because the lipase and amalase levels dont rise very much or at all. I went to a gi that specialized in the pancreas to get my diagnosis. Finally. That would be were i would go from here if i was you. I hope you get some answers. Good luck.

      Sounds like it was in the same place. Urq. Under the ribs on that side. That is the most common place to have pancky pain. Where those drs who told you that was not it specialist in the pancreas? I only ask because many drs have mis information on pancreatitis.

    I had the same pain for over 2 years, had every test possible. They didn't know what it was until I got nonstop diarrhea, then my GI Doctor said it was CP. I also got an itchy back, right behind the pancreas, that drives me crazy. I immediately changed my diet to low fat, low sugar, only natural foods, no preservatives, no junk, and NO alcohol. Now almost 7 months after diagnosis, I feel so much better. I still have the pain, but not as bad and I now take Creon with all of my food. If you suspect pancreatitis, try doing these things with your diet.
