Hi, I work with a UK registered charity (non-for-profit organisation) and we have been unable to achieve a diagnosis for a 45-year old female.

She experiences pain when eating for many years now. Anything she eats or drinks (apart from water), however small the quantity, causes pain in a region about 5cm below the naval and 5cm above the naval. This is accompanied with severe swelling of the region. The pain gets so bad that she cant touch the region and sometimes has difficulty breathing from the pain.

what could her condition be?
