Im 30 years old, 6'2" and 200 poinds which is average weight. My stomach always hurts and has hurt daily for a year now. Hurts more and more after meals. I had an upper endoscopy and upper barium xrays, as well as a CT Scan. Blood work was done and the markers for IBS, Crohn's, Ulcerite colitu, Giartia Antibody, etc.. were checked and all came back ok. Only thing that showed was minor gastritus. My upper and lower left side hurt. I get bloated can feel a clicking feeling when I press my upper left area after eating. Also I feel better when I put pressure on the painful area.
My doctors couldn't find anything wrong, no ulcers or nothing, they prescribed Prevacid for the minor gastritus but it has not helped at all. I probably sound like alot of other people with similar problems on the board and I know I am new but I am at a loss. I keep saying it will go away but it never does. I have never had food alergies in the past. My gut has gotten a bit bigger over the past year with age as I am not as active as I use to be but I am still right at average weight. I also eat alot lot less now then I use to when I was active. I just wish I could find an answer other than I can't find anything wrong with you. Thanks for any input.
