This is my first post...I just wanted to share my story maybe it may help someone. I have been having abdominal pain and back pain along with pelvic pain.The pains consist of burning, stinging are only on the sides .Pain started back in January of 2012 it hurts daily in which i have been taking tremadol to calm the pain. I have gone every week to doctors trying to find out what is causing this pain as of today they have not been able to diagnosis it. Procedures i have done since January are CT scan and Ultrasound of the pelvic and abdominal. I have also had I had a upper scope and colonoscopy done.On April i had done an Laparoscopic Surgery to check for Endometriosis which came out negative. Today I went for a MRI of the back. I will update my results.

Consider booking yourself into having a deep tissue massage. They usually last upto 2 hours. Your body maybe out of alignment and this can contribute to a lot of aches and pains around the body that cannot be detected through scans or xrays.Or see a osteopath who will also put your body back in place.

It's worth a try and very beneficial.

Hi MRI results came back abnormal last week. I went to see a specialist in pain management whom advised the results of the spine look o.k. and they has noting to do on what is causing the pains i am currently having. So he now told me he will not request for me to get another MRI on the neck to see what comes up. I am disappointed because i keep getting test done and the results remain the same.

The doctors beleive that what I have is fibromyalgia. I have been since January and little by little by little the signs of fibromyalgia have showed itself. It is hard to know that I finally have an answer of what I have and there is no cure for it.

Burning Stabbing Stinging Stomach Pain!
I have been experiencing pains in my upper abdomen as well. It started with pain when I would eat, even drinking water. The pain seems to burn and stab. My lower back is achy, my neck is achy. I've had a fever come and go twice now. I've had an ultrasound, Hyta scan, X-rays, CT scan, lab work 3 times. Everything has come back normal. They did say I was anemic and that has improved. When I roll over in bed, the pain kicks in. A couple minutes after I eat and right away after a drink of any liquid. Sometimes the pain will be on my left also but sometimes on my right. During the fever, my knees hurt, meck and back I am so lost and frustrated as this has been going on for 3 weeks now. In 5 days I have an EGD test, but I am in pain NOW! I just want it to stop. A food allergy test may be done also. Please help me!
