:( I have painfull swelling in my intestinal area, from my left hip its 5inchs over 2 inchs down, its been on going for 2 months, in the begining it became so painfull, and i didnt have insurance so i went to the ER, after 8 hours and checking for a hernia the said they found nothing and my lymph nodes were swollen, that it should go away on its own, well it hasnt and its affecting my sex life among other things, i weigh 195, i dont smoke, i exercise daily and am all around pretty healthy, i cant afford a specialist and i feel something seroius must be underlining this because its been hurting for so long, the swelling and pain levels rise and fall but is always prevalent, someone please help if you have any idea what this could be:confused:
