im 16 almost 17 and i have had these sharp pains under my rib cage (about an inch under my rib) and along the side of my abs on both right and left side. mostly my left side. its been going on for a few years and no one has ever found out what is wrong. when it happens it usually lasts for the whole day until i can lay down and sleep for a few hours. that usually helps. but still when i get up i no something feels not right. i thought about it being stress but ive been in very stressful situations and it hasnt happened and i think if it was stress it wouldve happened at doctors offices and such. i had an ultrasound done and everything was fine, and i got an upper gi series done. when i got the upper gi test done the doctor had told me that one of my small bowels werent opening up like the others. i dont no if that had to do with my stomach hurting tho. he said it wasnt a bad thing and not a great thing. he tested me for chrons and i dont have it. he said that everything looked pretty normal. my tests came back negative for everything. my stomach pains just come around mostly in the morning and stay throughout the day. i take advil when it starts to hurt and i think it might be helping some. no certain foods cause this either im sure of it.
anybody got any ideas to what is wrong??
