I have been in pain on my right side just below my ribcage for 1 year and 10 months now. It all started when i had the flu. The doctors have tried many tests that did not work, like blood work, x-rays, ct scans, hydroscans, ultra sounds, endoscopy, colonoscopy, and have tried several different types of medications; they have tried physical therapy. None of that stuff worked. I went to the hospital on Septemeber 2nd 2008 because the pain hurt so bad that i just fell on the floor. They sent me home because they could not find anything. On a scale from 1 to 10 my pain is usually at a ten or more. I have nausea, fevers, diarrhea, trouble breathing, i feel dizzy at times, i feel like i'm going to pass out everyday. My pain is getting worse everyday it is taking over my life. When i go to work i will have to pull over sometimes untill the pain dies down. My life is getting destroyed because the doctors cannot find a thing wrong with me i'm afraid that i might just die one day unless i can find someone to help me. So please help me with this pain. feel free to leave me a message.

  • I have had the same thing from Nov. 2007 (almost a year) until Sept. 19, 2008. I went to the emergency room five times, once by paramedics. I had 3 MRI's, 3 CatScans, pelvic exams, EKGs, the works. They check for appendicitis, everything. Finally, I decided to go to another hospital as I was so sick and tired of being sick and I started getting dehydrated. Well to say the least, this Indian doctor treated me and got to the root of my problem. He saw a large fibroid tumor on my uterus that was pressing against my bladder, which cause my bladder to drop and contract a bacteria infection, which went untreated thus causing a kidney infection. (chain reaction/domino effect). My white blood count was very high. The tumor was pressing upward on my right side. I received a shot in my arm of something I don't remember, a shot in my buttocks, and antibiotics through an I.V. Now I'm feeling much better and have not had the side pain. Oh, the doctor gave me two antibiotics to treat the infection and Lortab for pain and Naprosyn for inflammation. I tell you, I feel so much better. I don't know, but maybe you can have your doctor to check for large fibroid. I hope this at least may give you a new direction to being cured.Bless you.
