I'm a 25 yo male and have been suffering from chronic back pain for the past
two years ;also I haved had abdominal problems. I started having reoccuring
abdominal pain in 2007 and after losing about 15 pounds I saw a GI who ran
some blood tests and the only thing out of range was my amylase
which was about 10unit above what would be considered normal(cant
remember the#) however my lipase was normal. The dr then asked me to do
an abdominal ultrasound and later abdominal CT scan with and
without contrast to check the panceras and other organs and it turned out
normal. The dr put me on Aciphex and said if i dont get better he
would do an upper GI endoscopy. My stomach pain went away after using the
aciphex for a few months and after that I stopped taking it. My back pain
started a few month later and I started having backpain. It has gradually
gotten worse to the point that I always feel sore and have hard time sitting.
The pain seems to be center around a few points that my massage therapist
calls trigger points. I also feel these in my butt which makes sitting
anywhere hard. I feel the pain from when i wake up and I feel it until i fall
asleep. The pain is mostly on the right side and the muscles on the right side
seem to be always tense. I had a MRI of thoracic spine which was
normal and the doctor just sat there like it looks normal I dont know what you
want me to do for you. My thoracic X-ray showed mild
dextroscoliosis A few days ago my hip started to have the pain too. I
looked at my right and left leg and my right left seems to be about 5cm
shorter than the left leg. To make things better my stomach pain has
come back and after doing a test they found occult blood in stool. I
have pain on backside of ribcage. At the bottom part of the actual rib cage
too on both side now and feat that it may be getting worse.
Since 2006 I have lost more than 20 lbs.I am in pain everyday and so
frustrated with the doctors I have seen. Please help me figure out what this is
and what dr i need to go to.
