About Me: Female, 23, Huntsville, AL, member since Feb 2010
I'm 18 years old, and have been suffering from intense stomach pain for at least ten years. This includes bloating, reflux, occasional heartburn, constant and painful burping, and cramping. I also have some problems with painful cysts forming on my ovaries, and am on a
[More] birth control pill to remedy this. The most recent development is a constant feeling of a bruised sternum. I have been to my GP in the last month, I am currently seeing a OBGYN every 3 to 6 months, have seen a gastroenterologist in the last year, and have gotten an all clear from a cardiologist within the last month.
I have had my gallbladder removed, colonoscopy and endoscopy in the last two years, CAT scans with and without contrast, an MRI, and various barium tests. The pain is debilitating, to say the least. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
