Long standing problem-no diagnosis

for 23 years now i have had symptoms that include right flank pain that is in my back down into my buttock and around the front under my rib cage. it is a dull nagging pain that is sometimes more intense than other times. at the same time i am completely exhausted, have nausea, frequently urination, somewhat bloated feeling-i often describe the overall feeling as feeling toxic! These symptoms come and go lasting sometimes for 4-5 days and sometimes for weeks at a time.Yhen they can go away for weeks or monts at a time. They come on suddenly and then just go as mysteriously as they came. i have had many tests-urinalysis, IVP, ultrasound, blood work, colonoscopy over the last 24 years but no answers. the only abnormality that ever shows is some elevated liver function tests that the doctors have dismissed as nothing significant or indications of some mild fatty liver disease but indicate that this would not explain the symtoms. It is quite frustrating as when i am ill, i can barely function-i am so tired and sick to my stomach. i wonder sometimes if it is some . I think some times the symptoms are exacerbated by stress and i wonder if this is some type of stress induced metabolic disorder? Sometimes i think it is kidney and other times i think it is liver but no test ever shows anything! It is hard at this point to get any doctor to take me seriously and yet i know i am not making this up and i know it is quite debilitating when it hits. any ideas!?

Re: Long standing problem-no diagnosis

Hi,

Sorry your feeling like this, know where your coming from cos Im exactly the same!!!

Ive been having pain right side, hips aand under ribs for years.

Just recently have been badgering the docs cos I cant stand feeling sick all the time.

I get indigestion all the time which they say i acid reflux, and as for the pains well they dont know!!

I have to have more blood tests tomorrow because of abnormal results from kidney test.

I really do sympathise with you, if I find out anything about my symptoms I will let you know.

By the way, what age are you? male? female?

Re: Long standing problem-no diagnosis

soon to be 50, been dealing with this since i was 26. most doctors just dismiss me and tell me i need to go to councelling-psychosomatic is their explanation. my most recent blood work shows liver function tests more elevated than the last. am going for another abdominal ultrasound and another specialist to look at my liver but i don't hold out much hope for any answers-expect to be told again there is nothing 'physical' wrong with me. i am female, which i think is part of the issue-everything wrong with woman that can't be explained by a test result is 'in our head'!

Re: Long standing problem-no diagnosis

Hi, sounds just like my situation!!!
Im getting hot/fever bouts too now, Im post meno so I dont know if the fever can still be from meno.

Just had my fasting bloods done so hopefully in a week or so they should have some answers!!

Im off work again today which isnt like me at all.

Hope you get some answers soon.

Keep in touch.
