Hi everyone!

I'm 15 years old, and I have had abdominal pain for about 4 months, and it hasn't gone away since.

It's at my lower right side of my abdomen. It's there every day, and it hurts when I move.

I have done so many tests, from CT Scans, ultrasounds, xrays, blood tests, etc. All I get is- I have constipation.

On my right side of my colon, I have a lot of stool. For that, I am taking milk of magnesia to clear it up. But from my gastroenterologist... I get the same thing- it's constipation. I feel it is possibly something more than that. I had an xray two months ago, showing that the constipation cleared up- but I still had the pain.

Even being on my right lower side, I did think about appendicitis... but in my scans and blood tests it shows everything is normal.

I am scheduled to see a gyno... and wondering if that is a problem.

Have you had any abdominal pain that could not be diagnosed? What do you think that is causing my problem? I appreciate all the help I can get! Thank you!

  • try prune juice (small glass daily)--it's natural...you didn't say if you are sexually active or not...hard to say; we go for appendix on lower right but you've had blood tests...you need to see a protologist for a diagnosis, unless it's an std.
