GidgetPiecukoni, WOW! I have the same symptoms. I had blood work & an Ultrasound 1st and that showed a polyp. While my bloodwork came up fine the PA sent me for an Endoscopy to have the polyp checked. That Dr took a biopsy and said it came up Clean for bacteria (in other words...not cancerous, no parasite, etc. ). I was distraught because the pain in my upper side is horrific and he said to go immediately for a CT Scan so they can see better (hopefully) what it is, decide if the GB needs to be removed, & rule out "Other" things. The CT Scan did NOT see the polyp being it's 6mm, HOWEVER, they see a kidney stone which Dr.s are saying should be no problem and pass on its own BUT they saw water in my lung and Nodules too. So NOW they want me to see the Pulmonary Dr before they move forward. I have an appointment on Monday Columbus Day, however I CAN'T sleep and that effects my days at work. I am in awful pain, EXACTLY how you described, on my left side (moved from the right) and have trouble taking deep breaths it hurts so much. Today I'm calling my Internists office to tell them I need direction as to what to do because I can't take this.
I have found nothing more than a diet to follow and though I've always been into alternative treatment (acupuncture herbs and all) this time.....I think I'm sticking with Western Medicine, this kind of pain scares me! Though Doctors kind of Suck because no body has the time for me.
I literally feel your pain.
