I NEED TO EDIT THE TOPIC....THE PAIN IS ON THE RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT SIDE!!!!!
This horrible pan began about 3 yrs. ago...it happend once & went away for about 10 months....came back for another day & went away up until August. It has been chronic since then and only varies in pain levels. I've had 2 C.T. scans, 4 ultrasounds, a colonoscopy, a small bowel follow through and an x-ray of my right hip. The G.I. doctor can't find anything wrong. My Gynocologist said it is NOTHING GYNOCOLOGICAL. My primary doctor is all out of ideas! My pain level fluctuates on a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being excruciating) from a 2 (never lower than a 2) to about an 8. The majority of the time the pain is between 3-4-5-6. My primary doctor doesn't want to keep giving me percoset anymore either!!!! HUH? (Ultram doesn't work either) She only tells me that if the pain gets worse to go to the E.R.....where they're going to do tests to see if my appendix is about to explode, rule out life threatening problems & tell me to go home & rest! (Not to mention that the co-pay is a whopping $75 for the E.R. & I'm a single, self-provider....it's hard being a single woman) So basically the E.R. just a place for me to waste a day for useless testing that answers nothing.
I NEED HELP!!!! WHAT ELSE CAN I SUGGEST TO MY DOCTOR?
