I have had constant tingling and aching pain on almost all of the right side of my back, right side down to my hip and butt and some times down my right thigh. I get the dull aches just above my right hip below my rib cage and on the right side of my back just below the right shoulder blade. It started out like a stabbing pain and I thought it was kidney stones, but they checked. I already had my gallbladder out. Some times the pain is the upper right abdomen but mostly on the right side and the right side of my back. Can anyone help!!!!! They have put me on steroids, pain pills, zanax, and anti-virals since they thought iI had shingles. I am going out of my mund with the tingling CRAP!!!!!!!!

Hi Newfaith1964,

Welcome to the MS forum, sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. How long have you been dealing with the tingling and pain? Is this something that just started or have you been dealing with this for a while? What kind of doctor are you seeing?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Since I have been taking less steroids per day now the tingling is a little less. The dull ache on my right side of my back and my right side are still there and have been dealing with it since a week after my gallbladder surgery. I have been told I have from shingles to IBS, was treated for both with no test for either one. I have had a ultra sound to check my kidneys for stones and had bllod work to check my organs and they were all normal. I have had a x-ray of my spinal column and they were all normal. My next test is a MRCP and a hida scan to check the bilary duct for partial obstruction due to either stones or tumors and for any leakage. I have asked to be tested for MS, Lupus, Candida, Fibromialgia, Shingles, Diabetes, you name it and they still continue to wait and send me from one doctor to another and back again giving me more meds. I am just sick and tired of being sick and tired and in pain.

You may want to include a Western Blot blood test to rule out Lyme Disease as a possible cause. Last year I had lower back pain along with flu like symptoms. I initially went through many of the same tests as my doctors thought it might be kidney stones. Six weeks later I tested positive for Lyme. I am still treating with high dose antibiotics trying to resolve my neuropathy (numbness and tingling). I have a huge box of meds that were prescribed for me prior to getting diagnosed. By the way people with Lyme should avoid steroids. Hope that you find out what is going on soon.

I have been so stressed out!!!! over the whole tingling, pain and feeling like my insides are shaking at times and I sometimes feel like I am coming unglued. I am not sure if it is the meds or what. I do know Monday is the last time I take the steroids, Thank GOD!!!!!I sometimes think when I eat the pains start but can't pin point it. I tried not to eat until dinner but I still felt the tingling a little, not sure what causes them, but after I ate at night my right side started to ache, but it usually starts pretty bad in the evening though. I want to try to fast for a day and see what happens. I also heard that sometimes after gallbladder surgery some peoples bodies have trouble dealing with the extras bile produced and it either over works the liver or leaks into the stomach. The MRCP and the Hida scan should reveal anything like that as well as any tumors in the bilary ducts as well if the sphincter thing has spasms which they say they could put a stent in to stop it. I often wonder if the tingling could be something to do with sciatica which I do have a problem with my back and hip going out sometimes. Maybe there may be two things going on or the sciatica would be causing the pain too, but I am un sure. I pray that what ever I may have wrong that it is not serious or life threatening to me. I pray it is someting minor that can just cause alot of pain. You know like a pinched nerve which can cause a whole lot of pain but can be remedied. Please pray for me. I am feeling like the light at the end of the tunnel is a train, and then I go to another doctor and my hopes get lifted up until they let me down again.

I have had the sciatica shooting pain down the leg in the past that I believe was the result of using a leg press machine at the gym. It would usually last a few days then resolve. I haven't been to the gym since getting sick with Lyme over a year ago and haven't had that problem. At one point last year it became difficult for me to clearly differenciate between symptoms and medication side effects. I decided to take a two month break from all medications to help better understand what was going on with my health. I believe that one medication that I was taking for neuropathy may have been contributing to the mental brain fog that I was experiencing. Have you seen an MS specialist (Neurologist) to evaluate your symptoms?

I have not been to any neurological specialist as of yet. They are checking for anything gastro-entestinally this Tuesday. If they can't see anything there I will camp out at my family doctors office until he writes up the test paper work for a list of things I think it possibly could be. The list I sent you the other day. I have been praying until I cannot pray any more. I am glad that God is patient and does not mind hearing my same prayers over and over again. I thank God for the support of my husband and his persistance with pushing these doctors for me since they have been dismissing me until now that he has got involved.
