Hi guys I'm new here and was just looking for a bit of advice. I've been suffering since March this year with undiagnosed pain in my upper right side which goes through to my upper back. It's sometimes a cramping pain but more often then not its more of a sharp stabbing pain. I sometime get it on my upper left side to but not as often. No pain killers work even tramadol! So far I've had an ultrasound, ct scan and endoscopy and all have been fine except a slightly dilated bile duct on the untrasound. Bloods always seem fine apart from 2 occasions where my billarubin levels spiked slightly. I've seen a gastro specialist once up to now who prodded my side and that was it telling me to manage the best I could til I saw him again in 3 months (which is next month). My symptoms are upper right sided pain especially after eating greasy food, lethargy, brain fog, poor appetite, feeling cold all the time, cold sweats and constipation (could be down to poor diet) I've tried a few things like changing to soya milk, I've ruled out bread as a trigger as I'm fine with that and up to now the only triggers I've got are cheese, icecream (I am fine with milk and yoghurt though) greasy food and malteasers. The "attacks" I've had have lasted from a few hrs up to 3 days with just constant pain. And I never seem to go longer then a few days with no pain. I was adamant it was my gall bladder but docs have said no and suggested possible ibs. My friend who suffers badly with it says some symptoms are similar but she wouldn't say it is. Could anyone offer any advice. I'm wanting to go armed with as much info when I see the specialist next time. Thank you in advance xxx
