I'm 17 years old and I have had upper right quadrant pain for about 11 years now. The pain comes and goes. When the pain comes it is VERY intense and very painful. Now I have had many blood tests done. The only thing that comes up is that my liver enzymes are high. I was just in the hospital last week for three days. Doctors did many tests like: blood work, ultrasounds, colonoscopy, they put a scope down my throat, I have recently had a hydascan, etc. Everything comes back normal. When they did this one test to inject a type of hormone into me to watch my gall bladder empty, I got the same intense pain I get as when I eat. Now the doctors have an idea that it is SOD, but they are not for sure. It seems like doctors are just brushing that diagnosis to the side because they said it's rare and I also think they are doing that because I'm young to have that problem. When I read these blogs, it seems like you people understand all the frustrations and pain that I go through. When I get these pains in my abdomen it takes a great toll on me. It wipes me out. Now I'm a very active young person who eats healthy a majority of the time. I become very tired all the time. It's hard for me to eat because of the pain. I get chills and the sweats a lot also. There is also the constant feeling like I have to throw up and dizziness. When I was at the hospital the doctors put me on some type of medicine that stops the spasms, but not the pain. The doctors have also tried different diets but that is not stopping the pain. Is there a way for doctors to find out if a person has SOD right away? Basically what I am trying to ask is how do I find out for sure if I have SOD? Is there ways to lessen the pain at all?
I had a Gall Bladder attack not long ago and went online for help how to ease that terrible pain, I treid making a Flax Tea, get some Flax seeds and pour over boiling water stirring it , drink it when its cooled a bit, I did find this worked to ease it, I also printed out about what foods not to eat and what you can eat and that helped aswell, dont eat a long time before Bed, no milk ,no eggs,no soda, little coffee no chocolate. Follow what it says at the site, I know you have SOD but I think the pain is the same and as severe.I think eating triggers the pain within an hour or two. Hope you feel better soon.
