    Angry all test negative still in pain

    Have had all test to exclude gallbladder disease. All test are negative, yet still have upper abdominal pain center left and right and nausea with certain foods. All symptoms came up out of the blue 2 months ago with no previous history of this type. Was diagnosed with non-ulcer dyspepsia. Have been taking Cymbalta for about a year and was wondering if anyone knows if this medicine could be the source of the problem. Pretty frustrating to be diagnosed with a condition that the medical field knows little of, so trying to figure out possible problems causing this pain and symptoms on my own. Not willing to just live with the problem. Precribed protonix twice daily so hopefully that will help. Anyone out there that can help?

    Well, I'm not going to be any help. Just wanted to let you know you're not alone.

    All my gb tests came back negative too. My dr threw up his hands and said there was nothing more he could do for me. He offered to refer me to a specialist down in Philly, but I'm still debating about this.

    Did your doc do any tests for pancreas or liver enzymes?

    Edit: I just checked the info on Cymbalta. It can cause a whole bunch of digestive problems, including abdominal pain, stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, etc....

    Thanks for the response. Doctor did blood test and White blood cells elevated and 1 Liver enzyme was elevated. This was 2 months ago so I had him repeat the lab. Waiting for results. If Protonix doesn't change thing in the 6 weeks he gave it I will try to come of Cymbalta to see if that helps.

    My Doctor put me on Protonix which has helped with all the other symptoms but the pain is still there in the upper left rib. I may to to change from Cymbalta to Projac but I wanted to give it the 6 weeks to see what happens.
