What is wrong with me-left sided pain

About 5/6 yrs ago I got a sharp shooting pain about 3 inches left of my belly button, so bad I went to the ER, I could barely walk. They did some tests, did not see anything. This pain has come and gone after a yr, sometimes during or after a BM. Well 1.5 yrs ago the pain came back in the same area, but in my back too but it was more like a dull pain. It lasted a week. Now the pain is back, its been over a week and I am scared. I am scared is my pancreas as my dad was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The pain is dull and constant. I get an ultra sound on Friday and am petrified of bad news.

Anyone have feedback?

Re: What is wrong with me-left sided pain

That's pretty low to be your pancreas, it is higher and more to the center. Is it possible it's a ovarian cyst? Those are very painful and common. The ultrasound will let them know right away if it's a cyst or not.

Re: What is wrong with me-left sided pain

Thanks Zoe. I am literally panicking that I have the same thing as my dad, though I tend to be a hypochondriac. The pain is definately left sided and wraps around to my back. I have noticed gas (another reason I fear my pancreas) and more BM (sorry if TMI!) I do have a history of GERD and am on aciphex for it. I was given meds for stomach muscle spasms but thats not helping.

What could it be! I have had this on and off for years but as of the past 10 days it wont go away as it has before!!!!! I am scared
