dealing with abdominal pain
I have been dealing with abdominal pain for years. In 2002 I had my gallbladder out because my GI thought that's what it was. Well, the pain is still there.I had had a CT scan, colonoscopy, endoscopy - they found nothing. Only a scan of the gallbladder showed it was not functioning "up to par."
At its worst, the pain kind of radiates down the right side. I'm never nauseous, although sometimes my stomach just doesn't feel well. I am often tired (exhausted actually), I don't feel rested in the morning even if I think I've slept "well." Some days are good, though (only a few), where the pain is minimal or non-existent.
I have tried eliminating foods from my diet and have found no correlations. Right now I am not eating anything cold or raw. I have lost 12 pounds this year and that's not good. I'm way too skinny.
I have been to a PCP who sent me to a GI who is puzzled. Blood chemistry in March showed nothing remarkable.
I'm so frustrated, I don't know what to do. I've even tried acupuncture; no improvement yet.
