I have had extreme pain on my left side for two days now.  It is right below my left breast underneath my ribcage. I had x-rays and c-scan yesterday and they saw nothing.  My pain can be excruciating at times!  The only relief I get is when I apply a lot of pressure to that area.
It is very frustrating not knowing exactly what is wrong with me!
