I have been experiencing pains in my upper abdomen. 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!

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms are suggestive of gastrointestinal cause and probable peptic ulcer disease. If symptoms have not been controlled with conservative measures, you should consider taking a second opinion from a Gastroenterologist, go ahead with your planned EGD, and then proceed with further treatment option (as suggested by your examination findings and evaluation results). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gastroenterologist and report any new or abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
