I saw my doctor on 6/20/2013. During the visit the doctor pressed pretty ******n my upper left abdominal directly underneath my ribcage. The pain started the next day. I have had chronic pain in my upper left abdominal area underneath my ribcage since then. I saw a gastroenterologist and he said it may be an ulcer or gastritis. I tested negative for the bacteria that causes gastritis. I cannot get an endoscopy because I am allergic to the sedative they use. Abdominal pain increases when I eat foods that do not agree with me like meat, wheat, anything acidic, and more. There is quite the long list of foods I have had to cut out because they increase my abdominal pain. The pain seems to have been caused by eternal trauma. I don't know if an ulcer or gastritis can be caused that way. Also when I tell doctors that the pain was caused by another doctor they become difficult and uncooperative. Please help me get a diagnosis.
