Oh, and I also got tested for mono to see if I have epstein barr virus but that was negative, I didn't have the $250 to take the actual test for epstein barr. The reason my doctor suggested I might have that is because of my swollen lymph nodes, and because I told him that my girlfriend has human parvovirus b19(http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/revb/respiratory/parvo_b19.htm). But I guess most people are exposed to that and heal from it but some people don't get rid of it like my girlfriend.
I did feel bad before I met her, but since I met her I've been feeling bad much more often.. I wish I could find the problem so I can fix it and get on with my life, I want to be able to eat what I want again without having pain under my ribs and I wish my sore throat would go away and my itchy feet...
So, I was convinced that the only explanation could be either small un-calcified gall stones or stagnant bile since the pain is in the right place and the wrong types of foods aggravate it, and a hot compress makes the pain go away.. But after looking into the possibility of parasites again, I think there's a good chance it could be that instead or both. I also have symptoms of parasites and I found that like 80% of people in the US have some form of parasites in them. So, I ordered a parasite/colon cleanse and will do that for 2 months and see what happens. It's called, the worlds best parasite cleanse or something, here's a link where I bought it http://cgi.ebay.com/BEST-INTERNAL-COLON-PARASITE-CLEANSING-ONE-2mth-PACK_W0QQitemZ110068953351QQihZ001QQcategoryZ67555QQcmdZViewItem. I got an anonymous paper in the mail a few months back that explained everything and showed pictures of the different parasites that inhabit humans.
I read that some types of parasites like flukes can live in the liver and gallbladder and even the biliary ducts and cause this pain, which would also explain my swollen lymph nodes and constipation.
Hi. Has anyone thought to try a chioropractor. I had similar symptoms and had by back crunched. After several treatments, my stomach problems cleared up.
hey im a 17 yr old male and i have just started getting a similar pain on my right side. it varies in location, sometimes its right below my bottom right rib, and sometimes its right above my appendix scar and the other is about an inch above my pubic region to the right a little bit. its hard to explain the feeling but its pretty mild but i feel it everyday for the last month and its starting to worry me cuz it wont go away. it sometimes shakes like a muscle spasm. its sometimes triggered when i smoke too. i was thinking either a strained muscle or something wrong with my intestine. ive been feeling these mild pains for about a month now, i would really appriciate any info you could share with me.
I have been reading this thread in hopes of finding some answers myself. Unfortunately I have no info to offer rather then to say I am in the same situation as all of you. I am a 36 year old woman and I have been suffering for 2 years with this pain on my right side rib cage, the pain extends to the front and will go up my back straight to my shoulder blade. Sometimes it feels as though I am being stabbed, sometimes it feels as though someone is holding a blow torch to my side, and other times it is a dull ache. The pain began 2 years ago at which time I had an ultrasound and an upper GI done. Both of which returned little if no information as the upper GI showed mild gastritis and a small amount of fat in the pancreas which the doctor was not concerned about. I took some Prevacid for a while and it went away but has recently returned over the past 4 months. This time I have had another ultrasound, bloodwork, urinalysis, chest xray, and a HIDA Scan with ejection fracture, all of which have returned with no answers, showing absolutely nothing! I have an endoscopy scheduled next.
I am at a loss as to what is going on and I feel that everyone around me is beginning to think that I am just making this all up! I'm glad to see others have this same problem, not really happy you all have pain, but I know I am not alone in my quest to find what in the world is happening. I figured my problem was a classic gall bladder problem, but it seems they are unable to find a problem with it. We had thought it was a gall bladder issue due to the fact that approx. 3 years ago I lost a dramatic amount of weight, 75-80 lbs in 7 mths on the Atkins Diet. With that diet not focusing much on fat, we had thought that I destroyed my gall bladder in turn. Plumenting from being over 185 lbs to around 110 was a big thing and though I was happy to shed the pounds, I don't know what this has cost me in the long run. Since this problem began again a few months ago, I have lost a few more lbs because it is hard for me to eat at times as I get that pain very bad. Great I am a size 1 now, but I destroyed my body possibly! I don't know if my weight loss has done this, does anyone have this issue associated with weight loss?
Anyway, thank you all for listening. I originally had my endoscopy scheduled for Feb 28, that was before my HIDA scan results came back, my doctor told me to reschedule the test for sooner now that we still don't know what is happening. I will bring up possible SOD as that seems to be a similar pain to gall bladder. Any suggestions on where else to turn or questions to ask??
somebody please help me, im going crazy not knowing what is going on in my stomach!
