    Hi Kate!

    When I had my flare ups, I experienced severe pain that woke me up at night. I was always nervous to fall asleep because the pain that woke me up was usually much worse than anything else. I would practically holler out as it felt like someone stabbed me in my lower left abdomen. The twinges I felt while awake was nothing compared to the pain that woke me at night. I found myself using the heating pad a lot and watching what and how much I ate throughout the day and night.

    Hi I’m new to this site, I have had this pain for 3 months now.  

    Although I have not been diagnosed because my pain is on the Right side of my Abdomen not on my Left side.

    I have all symptoms except no fever

    Doctors do not know what to tell me I have except inflamed Rib/RibCage.  Which I don’t. 

    I’m so frustrated because of the Pain which leads to Nausea, Dizziness, and Migraines.

    Just wanted to thank you for listening to me.

      Hi Kate, I have had all tests except colonoscopy and MRI

      Because the other tests come back negative they say there’s nothing more they can do
