I am a 34 year old construction worker.For about 10 years or so I have had a feeling almost like a twist or something under left side of my ribcage at the bottom.This only happened about once every few weeks in the beginning but in the last year or so it has increased to almost constant.I have been to the family doctor enough to send his kids to law school and have been to two different G.I. "specialist",one in the early stages and one currently.I go next week to see a third!:confused:
I have had five colonoscopy procedures,upper G.I.,upper endoscopy,and the ever popular small bowel follow through.Lots of trips to the E.R. in the last 2 years for pain meds and every x-ray and CT scan known to man.I was diagnosed with I.B.S. 10 years ago,diverticular disease 3 years ago with a binine polyp removed,diagnosed with G.E.R.D. last year and gall bladder disease.Apparrently my gall bladder caused my amylase levels to triple and I had my first pancreatitis attack.:eek:
The worst pain under the bottom of my sterum that I hope my worst enemy never feels.Had my gall bladder removed.After the surgery last year,I have the sever pains in the sternum area and left side every few days,from 15 min. to 2 hrs. in durationbut blood work does not show high amylase.My current out of state specialist did her own scopes and tests.She said I did not have diverticular disease or anything else(G.E.R.D. etc.)Two CT's showed dilation in my small intestine but she can't find the cause and others were normal so she put me on levesin and asked me if I had a family history of pshycosis???If anyone can help I will personally put in a good word to ****s for you!!!(OR YOUR CHOICE OF DIETY OF COURSE):cool:
