Chronic Left Side Pain (cont.)

Thanks for the response, Marcia. There were two MRI's done. One was a complete waste of time and an example of doctors not listening. It was a full MRI of my upper abdomen on the left side. The other was a partial MRI of the lower abdomen on my left side - where the pain actually is. Neither showed anything. There have never been any tests done on my spinal column at all.

Thanks for the feedback and you are certainly right - trying to find answers from doctors that can't think outside of the box is proving to be no help. So far, GI specialists at MAYO have ruled my problem out as being gastro caused. The gall bladder is not something that i have tried yet though - nor has anyone thought of. That may be a next step in addition to the pain specialist.

Thanks again!
