Alyssa, you are too young to be going thru this. I don't know exactly where the pain is but I would insist on a CT scan with contrast, upper and lower and see if possibly something is wrong that would show up. I had something like that for years and it turned out to be my appendix but nothing ever showed up in blood work. Back then they didnt have CT scans so I had to have exploratory surgery. I was 20 when it started. A CT scan is the only thing I can think of at this time. I had very bad nausea and pain and slight fever for a long time.

You should get your liver enzymes checked if that hasn't been done already with your blood work!

Hi,
 I was hurting a few weeks ago on my right side and kept going back to doc and ER and all tests for gall bladder and appendix were ok. Finally they admitted me in hospital for pain control and a surgeon came in and saw me and said I had polyps in my gall bladder and he would just take out my gall bladder and appendix at same time. I have had no pain since other than surgery pain which was minimal. But taking out gall bladder sure does mess up tummy for a few weeks. But well worth it!!!

I'm sorry, Alyssa, I know it's frustrating.  I'm going to be a physician (am in my second year of medical school) and having a chronic illness makes the whole process of becoming a doc very frustrating.  Sometimes I just want to quit medicine altogether because I am so overwhelmed by the problems in medicine. 

BUT once in a while I will get a glimmer of hope, that many, many doctors DO want to help you, and will go out on a limb for you.  Those are the doctors who think outside the box.  Most doctors, by the time they start practicing medicine, are just burned out and jaded and depressed (I feel like that already and I'm not even practicing yet).  But not all of them are like that.  Have hope...you WILL get through this.  Even though I know how empty those words can seem sometime, they are true.

Alyssa,

I have posted about the same symptoms and experiences you are having just last week.  All of my tests came back normal also.  Finally I have a doctor who says that it might be my gallbladder going out & it's just not bad enough to show up yet.  Keep searching.  You are not crazy in the head.  I was starting to think that I was!!

Good luck.

Sherry

My gall bladder was bad for five years before it showed up on a test.

Tests are not 100% accurate. And doctors don't know everything. Someone on here said his doctor once confessed that we only understand how about 40% of the body works; we just guess at the other 60%. The brain, nerves and GI tract are the three major sections of the body about which little is known right now.
