Chronic functional abdominal pain

I have not experienced relief of pain for over a year. The pain is all around my stomach, an it feels like a spiked glove is squeezing my insides. I have gone through multiple tests, and have even more lined up. No treatment or medication relieves me, and any physical activity will agitate my stomach. I cannot regularly attend school, and dot even have enough concentration to do work at home. It takes me hours to fall asleep and during the day I have often attempted to dream away the entire day.
I meditate, relax myself, and walk at least 30 minutes a day.

Is there engine who is experiencing this kind of unrelenting pain? Is there anyone with advice on how to deal with this?

How frustrating! I hope you have found an answer by now. But if not I had a similar experience where my pain was undiagnosed and consistent for 4 years. I finally went to a cardiologist who diagnosed me with POTS syndrome. I am so thankful to finally have a diagnosis and to be working on recovery.
