I’ve been dealing with some very strange symptoms for the past four years. The most prevalent symptom is pain and fullness in the upper right side of by abdomen, underneath my ribcage, that occasionally radiates to by back. The pain is constant, lasting for months at time. It sometimes stops for a month or two, and then returns for another extended period. I also have occasional nausea, extreme bloating and occasionally irregular bowel movements. Oddly, I also have a strange, intermittent feeling of weakness in my right arm and leg.

I’ve had comprehensive testing, all of which was normal: Gallbladder ultrasound, HIDA Scan and endoscopy. Blood tests to evaluate for liver function, pancreatic function and celiac disease. I’ve also had a chest CT to rule out a lung problem.

So now, I don’t know what to do. My symptoms seem to match so many different diseases that I’m driving myself nuts looking on the internet for what might be happening. If anyone could shed some light on this, I’d appreciated it.
