So I have been dealing with pain all over for over 10 years now. I have been told I have Fibromyalgia (crap), but whatever I say. I was also diagnosed with Chiari Malformation type1. I do get headaches off and on from it too. I have a lot of joint and muscle pain (which in turn WOULD explain having Fibro), however, I just sense something else, but I don't know what. I'm 32 years old, I have had 5 children, and am all around fairly healthy. I don't exercise as much as I should or as I want, however, I am always on the go.
Just recently about 3 weeks ago, I started to notice this pain on the right side of my back and immediately thought, oh crap, a kidney infection or something.
But then a few days later, I realized the pain was NOT where it would be had I had kidney infection. I noticed the pain in the very right bottom corner of my back and literally on my hip area. But I can't tell if its muscular, joint related or deeper. All I know is that certain ways I move or turn, it feels like some one stabbed me there. When I'm not moving, Its not as bad, and sometimes I forget about it. But when I move certain ways, OMG. Its stays there and hasn't gone away at all. I went to the E.R and the doctor pretty much treated me like an **s, as if I was there just for pain meds or attention.
I got real irritated and pretty much told him off. He was telling me exercise this and that for Fibro and busitis. SO I'm like UGH.. I can't get a straight freakin answer. It doesn't help that we move so much cause my husband is in the Navy and he WAS just an E.R doctor. Not much he could do. But all this pain is making me so exhausted. Anyone have an idea of what in the world that could be.??

Recap: pain is in lower right side on hip in back. Hurts most with movement, more pain with certain moves.

Thanks guys for reading. Sorry it was so long. :(

  • Hi There...I can understand your frustrations. Being in pain is horribly taxing on your body. I have been suffering chronic pain only for the past 2 years but am also just physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted by it all.It affects your entire life from your sleep to your relationships.Youre right about the Fibromyalgia being a crap diagnosis. I have been a nurse for the past 10 years and in my experience, Doctors tend to label patients with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia when they have searched for an answer for ages and still cant find one. Not to say that Fibromyalgia doesnt exsist but it can be, whats called, a cop-out diagnosis.I'm not 100% sure of whats causing your pain but from what you've described I'm wondering if it may be nerve related?Did you have C-sections with your children or have you ever had abdominal surgery?I once had a similar type of pain in my stomach. It didnt hurt all the time but when I'd sit or lay in certain posistions, it felt like someone was stabbing a hot blade through me. Turns out that I had a nerve caught in some scar tissue around the site where I had my appendix removed.The Doctors did some nerve blocks and then I had surgery to have the nerve divided and have been pain free for the past 7 years.Even if you havent had any surgery, nerves can still cause problems, so look into that maybe?Hope this was helpful and good luck.
