I have been to different doctors about 7-8 times, and yet to still have a satisfactory diagnosis. Any help would be very greatly appreciated, as I am frequently in allot of pain and need help.

Here are my symptoms:
Have a small lump, about the size of a half dollar in the area of my lower right rib on my side.
Pain can get severe for 2-3 weeks, go away, and then come back again
When pushing on lump, there is a numbing feeling on skin, but gets extremely severe inside.
Hurts when lying down on right side
No visible bruseing, never broke ribs ,and never got hit there.

Test I have had:
Colonoscopy - Doctor said I have a "sharp bend" in my colon, and a few small pockets
X-Ray - Shows everything normal, no masses no broken ribs
Ultrasound - Showed no masses
MRI w/ Contrast of area whare pain is - All Normal
CT Scan w/ contrast area whare pain is - Shows fatty liver, but was normal for age

Medicines I am Taking:
Muscle Relaxers as prescribed by pain management doctor, but has no affect on my pain
Have had cortozones shot into the painful area, had little to no effect

Thank you in advanced for your help! Any input is appreciated.
