Two years ago I suffered from salmonella, for which I was hospitalized for a year, recovered, but don't know if this could have anything to do with what I am feeling now. Also about 5 years ago I had a beign tumor removed from my left breast. For the past year and a half I have been having horrible pain on my right side right below my rib cage. Thinking it could be my gallbladder I was put through all the tests possible for my gallbladder which all came back normal. I remember the day my symptoms started, I had eaten a cookie and drank a glass of punch when suddenly I felt like my stomach was very full, I became nasueas (spelling?) and my whole abdomin was cramping badly and was very swollen. I went to the ER where they said I had a kidney infection, gave me antibotics and sent me home. The vomiting stopped but the pain did not. During a visit to the ER another time, because of severe pain on my right side still, I was given an MRI and it found that I have several cysts on each ovary, cyst on my kidney, liver, and spleen. The doctor said they shouldn't be causing any problems because the biggest one was just the size of his pinky nail. Yet I still have major pain on my right side, sometimes under or between my shoulder blades, or in my shoulder, stomach and abdominal cramps, and swelling. Sometimes this all becomes worse after I exercise. Also everytime they have me do an uranalysis they say I have traces of blood in my urine, they always blame this on a bladder infection and just give me antibiotics once again. Though this will help for awhile, my symptoms always come back within a few weeks to a month. Symptoms become worse after I eat a greasy meal, or spicy food, or even when I drink soda. So I have learned to avoid all these foods, while I was learning what foods to avoid and because of the massive pain and the fear to eat anything that would make it worse, I lost about 12 pounds in two months. I am really frustrated and do not know what to do anymore. What is causing all this. If my gallbladder is normal and the cysts are not the problem, what in the world is it, and is there any hope that I will ever be free of pain and all these problems? Please help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
