Stomach Pain

For a while now I have had these crippling stomach pains that come at any time.  They are so severe that I end up on the floor (wherever I am), doubled over, not being able to breath and sweating.  It lasts about 10 to 15 minutes.  There is no rhyme nor reason to it.  I can pin point what triggers it.  Its so random.
I have been to all sorts of Doctors and been through every test there is and they never find anything.  
I have no idea what to do from here.  I cant live like this anymore.  I wake up every day afraid that it will happen again.
Any advise or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

What kinds of doctors have you seen? If you've had workups for ulcers, maybe the appendix, your kidneys, and other obvious guesses, do you think there is something you might be getting in what you ingest that is giving you this?

Hi Annie,   first let me say Thank you for reading my post and responding.  I am at such a loss.
I have seen my regular Doctors, intestinal doctors, gastro doctors.  
I have had scopes, colonoscopies, sonograms, internals, you name it I have had it.
I can not pin point anything that I am eating that would trigger it.    
I have stopped eating dairy, gluten, fried foods, raw vegetables but yet it still happens.      
I just dropped in a list below. Obviously they are missing something. Have you ever gotten in to see the doctor right after one of the attacks and had blood drawn or a urine sample given right then?

Here's a more complete list of things that can cause stomach pain. You say you've "been through every test there is," but it doesn't sound like it, or they would have found out what is wrong. In your shoes, I'd talk with the doctor about each thing on this list, to make sure every one of the possibilities has been looked into.

    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
    Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis
    Food poisoning
    Food allergies
    Urinary tract infection
    Lactose intolerance
    Ulcers
    Pelvic inflammatory disease
    Hernia
    Gallstones
    Kidney stones
    Endometriosis
    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
    Appendicitis
    Diverticulitis
    Abdominal aortic aneurysm
    Bowel obstruction
    Pancreatitis
    Inflammation of the gallbladder
  
There are also a lot of different kinds of abdominal cancers that can cause pain, but it doesn't sound like the pain would be sporadic as you are describing, but would be more likely to be constant.

Yikes - No - they have not spoken to me about these things.  I will make an appointment and take this list.
