Last September, I got this pain in my left side where my waist is. I get funny looks when I explain the pain. When it is mild it feels like a stitch but when it gets worse, it feels as if something is twisting. My doctor could feel the spasm on the left side and suspected a bowel infection but no luck. Since then the pain on my left side has spread up to the bottom of my ribcage and the twisting pain has now become very bad on the right side. It was in so much pain last week, I went to A & E. Had an X Ray but nothing showed.The doctor suspected high acid levels in my stomach and gave tablets to neutralise the acid and take away the pain. This proved unsuccessful and the pain has worsened and has reduced me to tears. I am only 18 and I really cannot take this pain any more! No painkillers have any effect. I have seen several online threads about
this problem but many are from years ago and don't state what is causing the pain. Is there anyone who has any information on this pain? Or experiencing it too?
