I have severe abdominal pain on occasion. It usuallys lasts about 24 hours. I've ended up in the ER 4 times since May 2008, had upper endoscopy, 2 CT scans, x rays, some kind of barium test of my entire digestive system, Hida-Kinevac (sp?)scan, ultrasound, blood tests, etc. Doctor says it's not pancreatitis, gall stones, gall bladder, ulcer, or cancer. The pain is in the center between my lungs right below where my ribcage meets in the center. Pain is very severe and when it gets really bad, will go around the sides, pretty much covering my entire upper abdomen. Might be brought on by certain foods, but it's not really consistent (one time after bbq, one time after Italian, one time after salsa, but other spicy food don't bother me.) I'm lactose intolerant and on Imitrex, Maxalt (not at the same time) and birth control (Camila), as well as Lactaid when I eat. One time my ca125 was slightly elevated; now it's not. One time my amylaze/lipase was elevated; now it's not. Generally no nausea or vomiting, although the last time I took a lot of Loricet & vomited numerous times. Between episodes I'm pretty much pain free as far as my abdomen. Had a C-section in 2006 as well as a partial hysterectomy (uterus didelphys). Pain is higher than uterus.
