Blue Eyes, I feel we should always check out any kind of pain. I'll be having a sonogram within the next week or so, just to check or gallstones or anything else. Maybe your doctor can start with that, something totally easy and non-invasive. Then maybe a cat scan. Although I just had a colonoscopy, I hate the thought of an endoscopy, where they put the tube down into your stomach...eech. I also had a barium swallow test, that was easy, jst have to drink this obnoxious stuff but then it's painless and easy. So see what he says, but please check it out. Hopefully, in both our cases, it will turn out to be nothing but gas.
