Basically I've had abdominal discomfort in my right side for well over a year now, with absolutely no signs of improvement. I have had lots of blood tests, an X-ray and ultrasound which all came back normal. I have in the past had episodes of constipation and diarrhoea, but has not been consistent recently (although I have seen improvements since improving my diet). My doctor has put it down to IBS due to my age but I feel like that's a cop out of a diagnosis, and is just a death sentence if it did happen to be more serious. Other symptoms I've experienced is often feeling tired, and I've also on a couple of occasions experienced a sore anus. But as I said, this abdominal discomfort in my right side has been present for what seems like forever. I have to sleep on my front otherwise it feels like it's being crushed. The only way I can describe it is a twisting feeling in my intestines or like a wadded sock under my right rib cage. It feels as though my organs are being crushed together. Please can anyone offer any advice as I've been fobbed off by my doctors too many times. I just feel like I shouldn't have to live with this burden. Any advice is massively appreciated.
