8/12 - had pain in mid left abdomen, adjusted sitting position and pain shot to center of chest between rib cage and through into my back, began to feel faint, dizzy and nauseated. Was brought to ER where I was found to have gallstones. 8/13 began period 8/14 nauseated 8/15 nauseated 8/20 gallbladder was removed. from 8/20-8/23 I had no bowel movements 8/25 8/26 - diarrhea 8/30 follow up with surgeon who removed gallbladder - in his words all was "normal" 9/3 pain in mid abdomen and back spasm in morning, brought back to er where bloodwork was done, along with xrays, ultrasounds and ct scan of upper abdomen - all came back ok - although I was anemic I was released - same evening I experienced a more severe version of the pain the "spasms" lasted for 30 minutes in which I experienced: dizziness, nausea, weakness, and extreme pain in my mid back and a "stretched" feeling in my abdomen. I was brought back to the hospital and was admitted. Pain killers were given to me at hospital, I could still feel the pressure in my back and abdomen - but the medication just allowed me "not to care" (so to speak) While in the hospital I saw a GI and a Internalist, ultrasound was run on my legs to check for blood clots (no), tests were run on my liver, pancreas, kidneys, all came back ok - the GI scheduled a endoscope for a later date. 9/8 sharp quick pains on left side of mid abdomen 9/11 started period 9/15 endoscopy - all that was found was stomach inflammation - biopsies taken - results - came back normal no bacteria or celiac disease
9/27 cramping in abdomen, 10/2 diarrhea/mucus in stool, 10/3 diarrhea/mucus in stool, 10/4 - diarrhea / mucus in stool and pain in mid abdomen and back spasms, 10/6 constipated, 10/7 chest felt tight, still constipated 10/8 started period, 10/9-10/10 from 2:30 am - 6 am I was awoken to severe spasms in my mid abdomen and mid back - it was not constant, but it did come back every few minutes, 10/18 GYN appointment (because my "spasms" all occur around my period - I thought I'd get it checked, however my GYN stated that all is fine and he believes it to be a digestive issue.
I feel very hopeless right now, any help is appreciated.
