(Someone told me today that it could be gall bladder/pancreatitis)
19, female, frusterated, ex-alcoholic/drug addict (yeah I know, sad)
Okay, well a few days before Christmas I was struck with this weird feeling of fullness and pressure in the upper part of my abdomen, directly behind the ribcage. It felt as if I did not have enough room in my rib cage for all my organs. It also was a bit hard to breathe at times like I could not get enough air, which made me hyperventilate from freaking out and excessive yawning.
After a few days of that I was struck with horrible pains all over my belly christmas eve to where I could not move for hours. No matter which way I turned, laid down, walked around, etc there was no lessening of the pain. Even crying hurt like ***l. For weeks after this I have had horrible pains constantly which are generally moving back and forth from the first two spots...right where my gall bladder and pancrease are (says the doctor)
It gets a lot worse after I eat, HORRIBLE after I eat any kind of fatty, fried, or greasey food. The pain gets even worse at night, and it makes it sometimes hard to sleep. It is somewhat reciding now after a few weeks, but it's still there and seems to be flaring up yet once again.
I have been put on antispasm pills , anti-arthritis pills, pain killer, meds to make food travel faster in my stomach, anti-acid (prevacid) and none of those have had any good results. The anti-spasm pills made me have mini-seizures, a near stroke, and auroas without migraines because of all the drug interactions.
So far I have had these tests done with ALL Coming back "outstanding" or normal. Just now asked the doctor to see if they ever read my pancreas enzyme levels....but no call back.
Ct scan of abdomen
2 blood tests
a lot of x-rays
small bowel series
mri of brain
heart monitor (haven't gotten results yet)
that electro-brain test where you sleep and they put a bunch of wires on your head and try to induce a seizure
A gallbladder test...where they inject you with dye and put you in a machine
Etc ...and absolutly nothing!!! I've never been so frusterated
not even tramadol, tums, tylenol, or anything helps me
