I am a healthy 31 year old male who recently started to experience upper left abdominal pain. It started as a dull ache that would come and go, not necessarily after I ate. Sometimes the pain would be present when I woke up before eating breakfast. I ignored the pain at first but after a months time I decided to go see my doctor. The doctor asked some questions, palpatated my stomach and performed a rectum (no blood). He also sent me for a abdominal/pelvicCT scan which came back normal, except for three tiny nodules found on my adrenal gland and in both lungs. As a follow up the doctor sent me for an abdominal MRI which also came back as normal- the nodule on my adrenal gland showed no sign of disease. I am suppose to go back in January for an additional CT scan of my lungs to make sure the nodules there did not get bigger.
Anyway it has now been 2 1/2 months and the dull ache has no become more of a sharp pain. It seems to get worse at night when I am trying to sleep. It has gotten so bad I can no longer sleep on my left side. It sometimes feels as if it might be trapped gas under my left rib cage. I went to see a GI and he wanted to perform an upper endoscopy. He did not want to perform a colonoscopy since I did not have any colon cancer symptoms, such as blood in stool, weight loss, nausea etc. However, I do not think that the pain is coming from my stomach. I still have a healthy appetite and do not ever feel nauseas. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice or if anyone else is experiencing the same symptoms as myself. I am going on 3 months with this pain and it does not appear to be getting better- it anything it is getting worse. I would appreciate any help. Thanks. Nervous
