Welcome to Healing Well Chronic Pain Forum I am not sure how much help we can be at resolving your problem but we can listen to you and share in your frustrations, and sometime just knowing your not alone in having chronic pain can be of help! I do think you have come to the right place, because here you will get kind, caring, compassionate help! People here really do care, and will,... if nothing else give you all the support they can.
You know I have read and reread your post, and I am wondering, if what is causing your pain and discomfort could be something else, and not just your stomach or internal organs??. You said in your post: ("I have pain if I bend over to tie my shoes or I “move” the wrong way; even lying on my right side in bed at a certain angle causes pain, forcing me to switch positions.")("The RUQ pain continues to be painful every day. Any type of movement in which the abdomen is involved such as tying my shoes or walking, I can feel the pain start to get worse. If I sit the wrong way in a chair (leaning to the right), the pain increases.") Has anybody looked at your spine? Checked out the disks in your back? and the nerve roots coming from around those disks? What you have describe, sounds like it possibly could be coming from a nerve root being irritated or impinged upon? Allot of problems with a persons back, is not felt right in the back area . Nerve root impingement will often cause pain, and problems, further down the nerve root path. And movement is often associated with this kind of condition, thus causing pain. I am just curious, if this angle has been looked at and further explored? If not, maybe it is something that should be checked out. It's Just a thought????
I wish you well and hope that you can get some answers and relief to your problem soon. Again I welcome you to our CP family and do hope you will continue to post and become an active member of our family!
Good Luck to you!
