I write with the hope that I receive some suggestions/leads and takeaways and if needed exchange notes with patients in the same boat.
This started in June 2011 when I attended a friend's party who hosted dinner and drinks. The next day I had an uneasy feeling (hangover) with first feeling of a flank pain in my left side. As It did not recede in a week, i decided to consult the GP who advised Urine, Blood test and also Ultrasound. Everything came out as normal.
I am a very occasional drinker- may be once in 6 months, thinking that drinks may have caused the pain I never really took drinks after that. But the pain continued - hence the doctor ordered for endoscopy which saw mild gasteritis and ulcesr which the doctor thought was not anything to worry about and prescribed antiacids which did not help much either.
In the month of november 2011 I moved to another country and the pain continued hence I again got myself checked up and they found nothing in my urine, blood tests, In the month of feb 2012 I developed rashes all along my upper body which receded in a few weeks with medications from skin specialists who did not offer any strong reason for this sudden outburst of rashes.
The dull pain continued, and I started observing moments more carefully, Indeed when I sleep straight I can feel
the pain come up to my chest , when I sleep with my body on my right side then the pain seems to shift to the right flank and vice versa. Indeed I do observe my flank area making noises like typical gas.
I shifted to another country in Dec 2012 and with continued dull ache I decided to get myself checked again. This time the doctor ordered for a MRI first after hearing my case and found absolutely nothing , chest xray and then ultrasound for upper abdomen which again did not see anything wrong.
During the winters I observed that my body would itch whenever I moved to a place where there was change in temperature, or if there is dust around which has subsided in the summer.
But now I have a problem with my eye, can feel the left eye buring and beginning to see eye floaters. And all this while I must say the chronic flank pain continues with pain now being felt also in my legs.
I have not shared needles or had unprotected sex etc.
Does all this add up to something extremely dangerous - I am worried.
