im 16 and i have had these sharp pains under my rib cage and along the side of my abs on both right and left side. mostly my right 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 day until i can lay down and sleep for a few hours. that usually helps. 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, which we havent got the results back yet. (my guess is that they wont show anything). 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 stomach pains just come around at random times and that is my only symptome so some doctors think im faking. please give me a few idea of what it could be.
