I am a 40 year old female. Doctors have disagreed over what this pain might be. I was told by one that it duodenitus, which my current doctor says it isn't exactly the right place for it, I had a cat scan 4 years ago which showed nothing, two gallbladder ultrasounds.... I have a history of stomach trouble (ulcers, etc.) and some IBS. The specific spot hurts when gently pressed and several times a week I get very sharp pains out of the blue that take my breath away. I am seriously allergic to contrast media and most medication which makes some testing difficult.
