On September 11th of this year, my daughter woke up complaining of a sharp pain in her right side underneath her bottom rib. It was so sharp that she was having a difficult time breathing for a few moments. We went to the doctor and he did a blood test to check for appendicitis and it came back normal. She still had a 24 hour pain in her side and the doctor thought maybe she was having some bowel problems. A few days later, her pain got so sharp that she started having more breathing problems so we took her back to the doctor. He did an emergency CT scan but saw nothing once again. We decided to go for a second opinion. My daughter went to a different doctor who told did another CT scan of her upper chest, more blood work, multiple x-rays and an ultrasound. In the ultrasound it showed that there could be a possibility of fulid around the liver. In the CT scan in said there was an azygous lobe or normal variation and a calcified granuloma on her lungs but they should pose no threat. We went to a gastrologist who said it wasn't her liver, and a pullmanologist who said it wasn't her lungs. The doctor said her blood work came back fine except that she was anemic. My daughter has gotten weaker and sleeps around 18 hours a day. She has missed most of her senior year because she has been in so much pain and doesn't have the energy to do anything. (yes, she was tested for mono twice) She has lost about 20 pounds in the past 2 months. She is still in constant pain in her right side, and it has lately moved to her left side too. When she wakes up, her finger joints on her right hand will be swollen up. We are back at square one and don't know what to do next. She takes aleve every 8 hours but it's not helping much. We live in a town of about 55,000 people. Should we go to a bigger city with better doctors? Please help us!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
