I have had a pain in my left side intermittently for 30 years. In the last several years it is so painful I cannot work and it keeps me in bed.
I have had many tests (endoscopy, colonoscopy), many drugs, including vicodin, xanax, lyrica, etc., and they do not help. My doctor thinks it is not organic. About five years ago I also had shots from a pain clinic, which did not help.
