I've been having the same issues with left side pain that goes from my belly, ribs, and to my back. Both CT scans showed nothing abnormal, small bowel follow through showed nothing as well. Yet, my pain still persists and is unbearable most times. I've been on low residue/bland diet, and even drinking mostly clear liquids...and nothing is helping. I was put in the hospital for 6 days, and the only thing that took away the pain was high doses of solumedrol which I was getting 4 times a day. Once I was released from the hospital on a prednisone taper, the pain came back full force. I meet with a GI specialist on Friday, and I hope he can help me. I've been having this pain since December 15 - almost 3 months!
