I have had pains below my lower right rib cage and lower right back for 3 months now. The pain has been constant in the front and ocassionally in the lower right back. I have muscle ache and tension. Also, my stools have been very inconsistent, going from diarehha to normal. I have had a bit of an unusual weight gain in the last 6 months (was 180lbs. - now 198lbs.) but I am not eating more or changed my diet in any way. I have not noticed any blood in the stool or urine. I have been having occasional hot flashes and some dizziness and occasional light-headedness with seeing "stars" occasionaly. Another pain dually persists in the area to the slight upper right of the base of the penis (about 4" away). It is a constant dull pain. There is also a slight swolen appearance. Both painful areas are tender to press on. I am 35 years old and have been in good health my entire life. I had so many tests: CT with dye, CT without dye, exray, stool, blood (don't know exactly what blood tests - but quite a few) and urine. All my tests (to my amazement) come up negative, yet the pain persists. The doctors all feel that I am fine and healthy?? PLEASE, PLEASE HELP with some suggestions. I am so very frustrated and scared!

I have similiar problem. I am 35 and I was in good health till this January. I had taken some over the counter cold medicine for cough and it broke my gastric balance. I had severe burning inside and the pain on the right side. I went to seveal doctors and all of then told me it was GERD. Finally I went to a specialist and he has suggested me to take endoscopy colonoscopy,CT of abdomen and pelvis,Ultrasound of gall bladder.
Before contacting him I thought it was something to do with the Gall bladder and used the Olive oil gall flush. To my suprise, I flushed lot of green stones. After which I do not have much pain on the right side, but the burning sensation and cold sweat on the right side continues. I would be taking all these tests and look for the feed back.
One way i practice to clean up my system is I drik 3-4 cups of water early in the morning as soon as I wake up. This would cleanse my entire colon, after which I have my breakfast. This really helps.
