I have recurrent upper left abdominal pain. The pain is worse when I run. Today I raised my left leg, and as I was raising my leg, it caused a spike in pain to 9/10.
The pain is in the middle of my upper left abdomen, at approximately the apex of my kidney(just guessing). My doctor preformed a UA which came back normal (no blood in UA). Friday I am scheduled for a CT with iodine contrast. My MD has no answers for me. I am a white female, 49 years old, 5''''''''4" and 120 pounds. I run regularly and eat a vegetarian diet.
What might I have and what other tests should be performed?
