Over the summer I started with a nagging ache right side only (upper abdominal) & I also feel it in the same spot on my back (like it goes straight though). As the months go by, it is getting worse. If I rouse at 6:30 AM, it hurts and I have to try to get into a comfortable spot in bed. After I get up, move around, and eat, I'm fine. No weight loss, yellow eyes, blood in stool or anything. Sometimes, though, I may feel a fullness in that area (doesn't hurt). My GI dr. dismissed me - doesn't believe it is intestinal (I suggested an endoscope, since I have a colonoscopy coming up). My primary suggested a CT, but I don't want to jump into another one of those (more radiation). Backstory: I have had inflammation in my stomach in the past (gastritis/duodenditis) - flares that would last a week. Only an endoscope after the fact showed evidence of "itis". My mom had an ulcer at 50 (I'm 52). My son (12) has severe IBD/eosinophilic disorder. I'm confused by this because I feel normal during the rest of the day. I'm scared it could be a tumor, but wouldn't that hurt all day? It is in the area of the gallbladder, but doesn't come after fatty meals. What on Earth could it be?
