I am a 44 year old woman with pain in my lower right side. I have had a partial hysterectomy 10 years ago, still have my ovaries. This pain has been onging for nearly 7 months. I have had CT scans, multiple Abdominal and vaginal Ultrasounds, Colonoscopy, Upper GI, seveal Blood tests and urinalisis, all showing normal! I have been at emerg numerous times and been told there is nothing they can do for me. The pain is REAL…I was taken off work 3 months ago by my GP, yet I still don’t know what’s causing my pain. I am now taking antidepressants and pain meds. This pain is quite dibilitating and I don’t know how much longer I can take it. If I knew what it was, I could deal with it….it’s the not knowing that is putting me over the edge! Someone please help me!!!

    Most of the necessary workup seems to be conducted but it is advisable to have it repeated. Any pathology which may not have been detected previously in these tests may have progressed to the point where abnormalities may now be detected.

    It is difficult to advise any other measures considering that your doctors were quite thorough. Hopefully other causes (neurological and muscular) have also been excluded. If you had other signs and symptoms, this may help with a possible diagnosis.

    I have had these tests repeated on several occasions. All return normal. My GP can feel something in my side and has now referred me to a surgeon for consultation. However, since my previous Dr visit I have developed other troublesome issues. I am having slight chest pain, which I guess could be stress related, also, intermittant burning feeling in my left calf. I almost feels like someone is pouring hot water over my leg. It is not constant but happens 3 – 4 times an hour. Is this something I should be concerned about?
