I've been really interested to read all your posts. I have awful pains in my sides, lower back and around my ribs for about 6months. The pain is there nearly all the time, it eases more when I lie down. I can't say there is any change in my bowel movements, maybe slightly consitpated. The pain was so bad last month that I went to A&E I was admitted to hosptial, I had a CT scan, gastroscopy and Colonscopy but could not find anything wrong. Although that is good news I still have no answer to what is causing the pain. It's getting me down now and my GP want to put me on Anti depressants!! I was wondering if it's IBS? I have read that the can from IBS can be very bad?? Can any help me??
I've had these exact symptoms and went to the hospital and they did the same tests and saw nothing. I'm scheduled now to see the gastrointestinologist on march 1st for the nuclear testing of my gall bladder functioning and intestines. Nobody in this forum seems to have any diagnosis ideas. Hmmm maybe we should all make up a name for our "new" disease!
