I have the same thing, and pain....I'm on tramadol. I was told originally it was ibs by my regular doctor, it is not. The stomach specialist said it is diveritculitis(sp) requiring antibiotics, steroids and close monitoring. Let me know what your doctor says.
I have a knot and severe pain every couple of weeks, since the time I had weight loss surgery. I am concerned this may be some sort of twist or blockage in my intestine - they take the intestine all the way out when they operate, and my husband guesses that when it was put back it may have twisted...my main concern is potential blockage.
It's been like this (2-4 hours of pain every 2-3 weeks) There are no common aspects when this hits me; happens no matter what I eat, when my period is, or what I'm doing. I have had a colonoscopy, a sonogram, batteries of blood tests, and CT scans. I was told the only way to diagnose this was a "live MRI" which is taken WHEN the pain is going on....any ideas?
ive had a knot on my left side right under my rib cage for ten years or over i had all kinds of tests but none of them turned out to be anything i also have a huge hiatal hernina in my chest it actually hides my lungs on a exray i find that when i get sick that this knot on my left side pains and hurts worse i was just wondering if anybody else has this trouble.
