I have had intermittent pain on my right side, about 2 inches below my ribs for the past 5 months. CT scan was negative. Gallbladder test was normal. Blood tests are negative except for increased reactive C protein(?) I began having breathing problems about 3 months ago and it is getting worse. Chest xray and chest CTwere negative, asthma meds were no help. I am seeing a pulmonologist next week for lung function tests(she thinks it's a function issue, not structural issue?) I am now exhausted most of the time. I have also had a colonoscopy and endoscopy-both negative except for gastritis.
Doctors can't seem to figure it out. I assumed that maybe stress was causing symptoms but as I've gotten worse, I know something is really wrong. The past week, I've been had numbness in my hands and legs.
Please help! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • no--The only meds I've been on were Prevacid for the gastritis(made it much worse) and now carafate.
