Hi I am 20 years old and have had constant dull/aching pain in my ride side( roughly in the kidney area) for over a year. Originally this was due to kidney infections which were treated but since June last year the pain got so bad I got sent home from work and sent to hospital. This time though it wasn't kidney infections so they gave me pain relief and had to schedule further tests. Fast forward to now and I've had my kidneys, abdomen, bladder, ovaries, cervix and pelvis checked and according to the doctors all of the above is perfectly healthy. I've deteriorated to the point where I'm in a wheelchair and on 8 tramadol a day plus I've been to the doctors, hospital and a and e more times than I could count. Also the pain has travelled all the way down my right leg and seems to be affecting my right arm a lot now too, and on occasion my left side has started hurting almost as much as my right side. I'm now waiting to see a spine specialist to check for nerve damage but if I don't hear back soon I'm going to lose my job as they refuse to let me go back in the state I'm in. I'm really stressed over this and everyone seems really clueless so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
