I have had issues for years. First dr. put me on prozac, the next said I had asthma, another said my pain in my shoulder blade was a pinched nerve. Well a few days ago I could not fully stand up without screaming in pain. The days leading up to this I had thought it was just kidney stones once again and having no health insurance I was just trying to get by. When the pain felt 10x what my normal kidney stones felt like I went to the ER. The at first thought i had a cyst on my liver from a cat scan. After an MRI they said i had a mass on my liver called hemangioma and gall stones. My pain is mainly in my lower back and stomach. I was sent home after a night in the hospital with a pain script and muscle relaxer. I was told if was gall related I would have pain in my upper back, not lower back. I am home now and still in pain. I believe my past cases of shortness of breath, pain in shoulder, pain in joints, and fatigue correlate with the gall stones or hemangioma. I know my loxwer back pain is also form this and am so frustrated I am not getting properly diagnosed. has anyone else had these symptoms with either gall stones, or liver hemangioma. Please respond. I am a mom and it is so hard to take care of my family in this pain. Why do doctors not listen when you know your body and something is seriously not right?
