I have now been to 3 different doctors regarding the same issue and still don't have any answers.
I have been having pain on my upper right side for a little over a month now. I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago. The pain is pretty steady on that side, it's not "double me over" pain, but it's there constantly. Most of the time I cannot lay on my right side or on my stomach as it hurts. I also feel bloated most of the time.
I have gained about 25 lbs in the last year or two, with no change in my eating habits or general life. I actually was on a diet limited to 1300 calories a while ago during which I gained weight instead of losing.
I have only had one period within the last year (always on time previously).
I also am constantly tired. I could sleep all day if I was able to.
I have had several blood tests done with the last set done last week. All of my labs have come back normal except for high leukocytes and a high sediment rate. I also had a CT scan last week with contrast. That came back normal as well.
Every doctor has said the same things...basically that's I'm fine. But I don't feel fine and I know deep down that there's something wrong.
Can anyone offer me any suggestions on what to do or who to see?
Thank you.
