Hi there

I've had some kind of debilitating illness for over five years that has not been diagnosed yet. I was wondering whether anyone on this board has any ideas. I have a sharp pain in my right hip and just below my rib cage on the right side of the sternum. The pain is excruciating and its exacerbated when sitting.

I've been to see over 15 doctors and not has successfully diagnosed it. My blood tests come out normal, ex-rays of hip joint are normal, ultrasound of stomach normal, etc.

I am 32 years old, otherwise extremely healthy (I cycle 120 km a week). This pain problem is affecting my work seriously as I cannot sit for longer than 5 minutes. I would sincerely appreciate it if anyone share their insights into what it might be.

thank you sincerely in advance
