I'm still looking for a diagnosis of pain I get right side of abdominal area. Shallow, feels like it's in muscle where abs meet rictus sheath.
History: I used to get severe pain just above this area that would last 4-6 hours that on occasion would mean a visit to A and E, this would be 2-3 times per year. Very infrequent.
I now feel more of a discomfort sharpish pain day to day when I bend over or exercise. A worry more than disabling pain, like a niggle but because of really bad pain I use to get it got me paranoid. Old pain I got on and off for 25 years, this new discomfort thing I've had for 2 years.
So being a 48 year old very fit male and having enough of being told to just get on with it I pushed for some idea for what's going on. All the tests listed below have been done and all Normal,.
Blood tests for all liver, kidney pancreas, gallbladder diabetes etc, X-ray, ultra sound, CT scan, blood in stool test and I've been prodded and poked by doctors and a gastric speacilist, oh and had an ulcer test too. All clear!!
Doctors now suggesting it's all in the mind. It's not!
Anybody had a similar experience or got an idea. CT scan was totally normal too.
Could it be muscular?
Any info much appreciated as it's metaphorically a pain in the arse but a real pain in the side.
