Hey all, I've had an achy soreness in my upper left abdomen around the ribcage and on my left side for several months.
Been to the doctor. Blood tests fine, ultrasound fine, and h. pylori test came back negative. At first they suspected an ulcer or gallbladder problems but the tests have ruled those out.
I have no nausea, no vomiting. Bowel movements are normal. I don't feel "sick" per se. I just have this constant pain in my upper left abdomen to the point I cannot even lay on that side when I sleep or I wake up in agonizing pain.
I have cut fatty foods and all alcohol entirely out of my diet for 2 months now. Still no improvement.
During the last 7 years, I have also had a burning ache in my upper right abdomen and all tests for that continually come back clean as well. Just figured I'd mention this in case it's related to the left side pain.
I am at my wit's end here. I am on pain medication and taking prilosec, but the pain still persists. My doc has no clue what's going on. There is obviously something very wrong going on in my body and nobody knows. I'm wondering if it might be colon but, again, I have no loose stools.
Anyone experience anything similar?
