  • celiac disease, most doctors won't diagnose it, there is denial in the medical community as to how common and dibilitating this is. They will just say you are a hypo/neurotic. Good luck.

  • I have the same problem only it is on the right side and the pain can get very severe. Although I feel sick I have only vomitted a couple times. I have been to so many doctors and it has been going on for 8-9 months. I even fractured one of my ribs on the right side about 7 months ago. I have no idea how I did and I had another round of x-rays a couple weeks ago and the fracture wont heal. I would bet a whole lot of money that whatever is causeing me all the pain caused my rib to fracture. And they checked my gallbladder, kidneys, spleen and appendix all are ok!! I am as clueless about whats going on as my docotors I would just love for the pain to go away!!!
