Re: Dull, constant pain on right side

I had a dull, constant pain in my left side. It took several months and several tests (chest x-ray, CT scan, blood tests, and upper endoscopy) but I have finally have a diagnosis of autoimmune gastritis. I did get more digestive pain as time went on but it started out as just a dull abdominal pain. Doctors tried to tell me it was muscle pain for almost two months but I kept persisting. So if you haven't had an upper endoscopy, I would see if a gastro doctor would be willing to do one. Especially if you have anemia (finally found out the cause of my anemia - I don't have instrinsic factor for vitamin B12).
