Left side pain...

Heres my story i'll sum it up. Since i was around 12 i always had this kinda wierd left side pain. . . it'd come and go at random. It'd get worse and worse and the years progressed. Well in 05 i got really horrible symptoms. Heavy fatigue/ flu like symptoms. After about of year of going threw dr. after dr. they said i had lyme disease. I was treated for a year on zithromax. . Well feb this year. . . that side pain began to get worse... and my heavy fatigue came back. Im having horrible stomach/side pain...digestion issues/light headed ness...brain fog. . . just dazyness. I'm really really scared its something serious!! I'm getting a colonosphcy *spelling* next week. I just went and got blood work done. The dr. didnt seem to concerned.... but i know my body and im feeling im getting worse and worse as teh days go on. . Any ideas of what i may have? or things i should try to help??

Re: Left side pain...

I get this as well off and on for years.
Is your pain sometimes pinching feeling? sometimes dull sometimes just an annoyance?

Re: Left side pain...

That sounds like the pain I had start about 10 years ago and still have today. I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome after several tests. The tests were done by a Gastro Doc and then I was referred back to my PCP for treatment. I have been on various pain meds to slow the bowels (from chronic diarrhea) and deal with the pain. I am still on 120 mg of Methadone a day.

Was the pain in your left side stomach area? I have pain on the left side stomach area. Sometimes it pinches, sometimes it hurts if I press the area, sometimes its a dull pain, or a sore pain. Sometimes it is not too bad or I don't even notice it and sometimes it irritates for weeks.

Re: Left side pain...

Dea4...Yes, my pain is on the left side, just below the bottom of the rib cage and about even with the belly button. It's a dull never ending type pain with sharp jabs of pain several times a day, that slowly eases and goes back to the dull pain.

I hope this answers your questions.

Re: Left side pain...

I get a lot of left sided chest pain as well, mine is under the rib cage and radiates around the back, it totally freaks me out, even though Ive had it loads of times it still freaks me out

Re: Left side pain...

Thanks Director for the reply. My pain is mostly on the left side a bit above the belly button not even with it. Probably about 3 inches over and two inches up on the left. Seems like when I get this pain the muscles right there pull in sometimes. My back is also out and causing pain. I've worried it could be pancreas but I have had this off and on for 17 years, moreso lately though. Sometimes a sharp pain. sometimes dull, sometimes pinching or just a sore feeling. A few years ago I read that gastritis can cause this type of pain but I don't remember where I read that.
