It has been close to 5 years now and 2 to 3 times a year I would have this abdominal pain and some time it is so bad that I have to be rushed to the ER and get some pain meds in me to keep the pain down. Next it would be gone. While I was in the hospital they have done all kinds of test and every test everything is normal, there is nothing wrong with me. I've been to 4 different doctors and every one of them says I am fine, there is nothing wrong. But why is that I am having this pain every few months. It has been more frequent recently. The pain starts right below the middle of the ribcage and it comes and goes all night, sometimes the pain is really bad that it will keep me up all night and eventually rushed to ER during the night. By next day the pain is gone with the help of some pain meds and I kind of feel bloated. The pain (when I push in with my hand) is at the bottom of abdominal where the belt line is and will stay there for couple of days and will be all gone. I think I've done almost all tests there is that can be done and none of them reveals anything. I am at lost here, can anyone have any suggestion to where should I look for help?

I am M/38, does not smoke or drink.
