Hello, I am not sure I am on the right forum ....
I am having a problem with my upper right abdomen, I am not sure about the exact location, it's mostly to the side and a little the back .... not much the front.
It started after I cried for a whole week and was miserable, stressed out because I realized I wasn't getting pregnant while everybody around me was pregnant or giving birth (I have been married for 1 year) ... I was literally crying and crying and crying and yelling at myself and just stressed out and miserable the whole time for a whole week+.
The pain started right then.
I have been told it could be from stress.
The pain/discomfort comes and goes.
I can actually sleep at night.
Today for example it started after I had my cereals with almond milk (I cut out dairy products for now) - but I haven't been able to associate it with a particular food yet.
Stool / bowel movement is normal.
It doesn't hurt when I cough.
It hurts (more like a discomfort rather than pain) mostly when I am sitting down.
It doesn't hurt when I am walking although I have somehow a discomfort (not all the time).
I was guessing IBS but I am not sure I have the symptoms.
I really don't know what it is but I remember that when I first got it it was extremely painful but when I started to relax, with deep breaths it totally went away ... but then it came back.

I am still extremely stressed out as I am still having the same issue, and going to fertility doctors is not doing me any good as I keep on being miserable, anxious, crying and stressed out.

I am gonna go to the doc in a week but I just wanted to hear some opinions, if anybody had something similar.
