I have been in pain for 1year and 10 months on my right side just below my ribcage i'm only 19, i will be 20 in a few days. The doctors have done several test on me, like x-rays, catscan, hydroscan, blood work, ultra sound, and recently an intercostal nerve block, none of them helped the doctors, they all came back negative. The doctors have tired several different medicines, no medicines work. I have nausea, diaherra, blurriness, trouble breathing, chest pain, heart pain, feeling faint at times, back pain,and feel like i'm going to pass out everyday. i'm really getting tired of not being able to find out what is wrong with me cause my pain is just getting worse everday. The pain is constent, its always there it never leaves, nothing makes it better and nothing makes it worse. It has gotten to the point where i can't sit down or lie down (in any way) with out being in pain. I have gone to the hospital it was on September 2nd, and they ended up sending me home cause they could not find anything. I real could use help, this pain is taking over my life, its getting to the point where i can't bear it anymore. please help me find out what is wrong.

  • Gall bladder disease would fit your problems or H. Pylori. I know that you said that you had a HIDA scan but maybe something was missed. H. Pylori can cause these symptoms it can be checked by blood and by endoscope. Have you had a endoscopy< Your kidney is there too but it would not cause diarrhea

  • My sister has experienced many of these symptoms. The leading diagnosis that we have so far is kidney failure. It would explain your lightheadedness, feeling faint, and could even contribute to nauseau and diarrhea. I would get that checked out if you could, my sister has also been recommended that she have a table-tilt test done.

  • I went to Mayo Clinic on the 23rd of Decemeber. They did an EKG, chest x-ray, lab tests ( including stool, and urine tests), they also did an ultra sound on me. They didn't find anything that i know of cause they didn't tell me nothing. They told me to go home and wait for the insurance to go through then they would have more tests to run on me. so far they have not called me for more tests. i tired of being a lab rat. i could use some help here. On December 26th it went on 2 years since i've had this pain. i'm tired of all of this waiting for hope. please help me.
