I have a constant gnawing pain under from ribcage (right side). Sometimes there is a sharp moving pain and I feel a fluttering sensation. I have thrown up a few times and I am quite dizzy after eating. Went to the ER and the CT Scan and ultrascan showed nothing. My white blood cell count was 12K.

Yesterday, went to my GP and had HIDA and fraction test as they were normal. I am beginning to think this is all in my head and I feel like I am going crazy.

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis through an “emergency” colonoscopy. Then last summer, I had similar symptoms. My white blood cell count was 22K and hard enlarged red blood cells. Then a second colonoscopy (about 3 yrs later) showed no ulcerative colitis. WHAT?

Could this be all tied together?
