Ok, I have a friend who is a 15 year old female.

About 3 weeks ago, she got upper abdominal pains; It sometimes travels, and is around the rib area, it is only felt in the front and not in the back. Her mother took her to the doctor, and between now and then she has had many, many, many blood tests done, these include Deficiency, Blood disorders, Ect ect. The best thing doctors can come up with is an ulcer. MRI and CAT scans should be done in the near future. The pain fluctuates between 1 and 10, 10 being the worst; sometimes so bad she will not be able to move.

There are no other accompanying symptoms.

If you ask questions, I will reply to them, ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED!
