Starting back in November, after dinner I had awful stomach cramps and had to immediately go to the bathroom. I had very loose stools and after going I had the worst pain in my right side under my ribs and around to the back. The pain subsided eventually and then I had a continuous full feeling just below the sternum and I felt like I had to belch and would sometimes feel nausous. About a week of this feeling I ate tacos and with in 5 hours I was in such severe pain that I could not bend at the waste, was vomiting and felt like I was having a heart attack. I went to the ER and was giving a chest x-ray, blood drawn, and an ultrasound for gall stones. Nothing was found and I was sent home with vicodin. The discomfort continued for another week so I went to my regular doctor. I was put on levoquin in case I had a stomach infection. I had a barium swallow done and no acid reflux, ulcers, tumors... everything negative. I also had another ultrasound. No gall stones, nothing wrong with stomach, kidneys, liver, pancreas etc. Referred to a GI and was given double dose of Prevacid and a smooth muscle relaxer. This doesn't help. They think I could have a stomach bacteria but aren't sure. Haven't had the upper GI done yet. I am constantly feeling full and it can hurt so bad it radiates into my chest and up to my armpits. When I do not have that feeling, I have discomfort under my right ribcage and around to the back on the right side. This discomfort sometimes goes all the way to my shoulder. Any suggestions on this might be? Any suggested tests that I should request of my doctor. I have a long history of gall stones in my family (mother, grandmother, great grandmother). I also have lactose intollerance and celiacs disease in the family (negative for both). I already have IBS. I am 28 years old 5'9" and 180lbs. Any thoughts would be great.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
