I have had abdominal pain now for two months. It's mostly right side and under the navel it is sore, but sometimes it is just sore all over my abddomen. I also experience pain around the right hip towards the back. I am 52 years of age and went through an early menopause (haven't had a period for at least 5 years). I had simllar symptons last year, and my GP sent me for an ultrasound of the abdomen (result - nothing showed up). My GP also took bloods to rule out Coeliac disease. In the end, she suggested Mebeverene tablets, which seemed to work, and the symptoms died down. I tried Mebeverene this time, but it did not help. Neither did other antispasmodics such as peppermind tablets, etc. I have changed from branflakes to porridge at breakfast (soluble fibre), which has lessened the bloating a bit, but not the pain. I am gradually losing weight as I am trying to alter my food intake in order to try and discover what may be causing it. So far, without success. The most recent time I went to my GP (yesterday) she suggested the FODMAP diet, so I am going to see how I get on with that, but I was really hoping she would send me for more tests.
Next week I have to carry on with my working life. I'm just going to have to take painkillers and hope for the best.
