Medical forum,
I have a upper left (my left) qwadrant abdominal pain, it is a burning shooting pain, feeling like a hot poker, for 8 years already. I already had several colonoscopies and gastroscopies and everytime the results are the same: that nothing is wrong with my intestines. The last docter has even tested my pancreas, gall, liver and spleen and sees nothing wrong with them. January this year I had a C5/C6 fusion due to a motor cycle accident years ago. But this burning shooting pain are ever present, 24/7. Sometimes my feet ***k, and my hands open spasmodic.
When I lay on either my left or right side and apply pressure from the under belly the pain subsides. (My wife thinks it is some kind of hurnia.)
What is wrong with me? Please help I am desperate.

  • i was just wondering if the thread you were sent was of much help? It sounds like a trapped nerve type thing. i get a burning hot poker shooting down my thigh sometimes and its excruciating, and people havent got a clue when i describe it to them. i think thing like tht can be caused by crushing injuries too. probably just precribed painkillers would be your best option for the moment
