I am a 24 year old male that has been dealing with constant stomach pains for just over 2 years now. When I say constant, I mean that in the last 2 years my stomach has never stopped hurting, not even for a second. I am on my sixth doctor, while none the closer to having it diagnosed. I know stomach issues can be very difficult to determine the cause, so I will be as specific as possible with the symptoms...Symptoms: Constant stomach pain in the abdominal area, only known thing that causes the pain to greatly increase is alcohol consumption (pain will be terrible the next day, slightly better the next, and usually around the third day is back to "normal" pain level), greasy foods such as pizza can cause a slight increase in pain, pain is a little worse in the morning. Some symptoms that may or may not be related are frequent urination (10-20 times a day) and frequent sore throats. Tests: Doctor's have given me multiple tests and examinations, with everything coming back negative. I've had many blood tests, urine samples taken, stool test for H. Pylori and Pancreatic Elastase, a breath test, cat scan of abdomen, cat scan of abdomen with contrast, colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, celiac disease test, gastric emptying study, and small bowel series test (to name the ones I can remember).The breath test came back slightly high for H. Pylori, but medication and a strict diet did nothing to reduce the pain, so the Doctor assumed it was an inaccurate reading.Does anyone have any thoughts as to what this could possibly be or have any advice for where to go next as I am feeling helpless with so many doctors trying to diagnose the pain, but none being able to. I've done hours and hours of searching online for any answers or any other cases that are similar, but am having no luck. Anyone who has had similar symptoms? Any input is greatly appreciated!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
