I get a recurring pain lower right abdomen. It's not always quite the same, but it's always around the same place. This has been happening from time to time for the last 40+ years, so it's not exactly new It's similar to the pain that got me diagnosed with Spastic Colon as a teenager, but that was on the other side and clearly was to do with my gut. I also get occasional nasty spasm attacks, but they tend to be across the middle. I have always treated the lower right pain as a gut problem, but tests over the 40+ years have looked at my appendix (as part of a endoscopy, "NO, you have a nice healthy appendix!", my bladder (I do suffer from recurring cystitis, like most other women of my age that I know, but they never found anything structural to blame it on), ovaries scanned (some time back) in case it was a cyst or something worse, and my gall bladder, when if crept up my side a couple of decades ago.
Nothing ever found, apart from one solitary little polyp a few years back, which they clipped out. Nowhere near the pain area.
It's not an acute pain (usually) but it can get bad enough to spoil my day, and seems to cause referred pains in my right leg and arm when it gets going.
My GPs have had a feel around, say it's not "hard" or showing any signs of appendicitis. They treat me for the cystitis, and gave me extra pain killers when I asked (they did assess) and I don't use these all the time by any means. They don't seem worried, just tell me to come back if I get sick or anything starts "blowing up".
I know I am an anxious creature and tend to blame the pains on anxiety and stress. Sometimes it "ties in" but mostly it doesn't.
It's getting worse (ie more painful, and attacks a bit longer) as I get older, or I would just do my best to ignore it.
I've even had it suggested it might be a form of sciatica, but I don't suffer from any back problems or back injury.
So, has anyone experienced anything similar, or got any suggestions?
