I am a 17 year old female, who has been fairly healthy. Two months ago I began getting severe pain in my LUQ. It was so severe I was in bed for two weeks. Then my period started, and I passed it off as weird period symptoms, but still went to the doctor, as I was severely dizzy. They said I had an enlarged spleen, but nothing showed up in my blood or urine samples. So they sent me to get a CT scan; nothing showed up either. Eventually after four weeks of severe pain, it started to subside, and eventually went away. Now two months later it is back and worse as ever. It is keeping me up at night and killing me. The pain is localized just under my left lower rib.
Does anyone know what this could be?? I am desperate, but my parents wouldn't take me back to the doctor because they found nothing before.
