The Run Around

5 years ago I started experiencing pain under my right ribs. The pain radiates down the ribs and around to my back. On the front it is a dull throbbing pain and on my back it is a fierce stabbing pain. I have been scooped, probed, x-rayed, medicated, injected, and I do not know what else. My symptoms continue to get worse and all I hear from a variety of doctors is that I am just fine. I wish that they could live with this for one day and then I might get some answers. I feel like I have a band around my upper ribcage that is slowly sqeezing me to death. There is no correlation between physical activity and the amount of pain and there seems to be no consistent problems from what I eat or don't eat. Any ideas?
