I am a 50+ female currently suffering bouts of excruciating pain for 9 years. The doctors started with "pinched nerve," then moved on to discover diverticulitis, kidney stones, and thyroid/hormone imbalance. I finally had a great doctor who seemed to actually "CARE" about the specific cause of my pain, then 3 weeks ago, he died suddenly... this is not a joke. I have had CT Scans and a colonoscopy. I am currently diagnosing myself as having Pancreatitis, but the pain is in my left back, not my abdomen, and I have constipation, not diarrhea. Does anyone else out there have pain resembling a kidney stone passing, but is NOT a kidney stone?
