Okay so first things first, this isn't a new thing for me. I've been getting pain in the right side of my abdomen for several years now so I know it can't be anything like appendicitis for two reasons. One, because I'd be dead by now, and two, I've actually had an ultrasound, and an x-ray, to make sure there was nothing obviously wrong.
But still, despite having an ultrasound and an x-ray, I get abdominal pain. sometimes it's quite sharp, like I'm being stabbed, and sometimes its just a dull annoyance that doesn't hurt much at all. It varies, as does the time I get it. But when I get it, its always on the right side, just below my navel. My current GP won't do anything about it but I'm in the process of trying to find a new one (GP that is) but until then, I need some answers...or maybe just some support from people who might understand, I don't know.
Recently the pain is also accompanied by nausea and the feeling of not being able to eat. Of course, I force myself to - I'm actually a bit underweight, always have been, so skipping meals isn't a good idea - but often I'll feel like throwing up or just feel horribly sick.
Along with that, I also get headaches, restlessness, mood swings, decreased appetite...has anyone else experienced something even remotely similar?
can anyone give me any tips on what on earth I should do next? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
