I have abdominal pain but cant find out what is wrong. I would describe the pain as chronic pain just above my naval, if I push at the area it hurts and it is always in the same place and I feel it when I take a deep breath. The abdominal pain has been going on for about four months now. My Dr. has done blood work and I should be glowing after all the CT scans I have had. My Dr is real good at telling me that nothing is wrong but what I feel in not my imagination. Sometimes I feel like I want to throw up but I never do and the nausea often starts while driving my pickup truck. My gallbladder and appendix have both been removed. I have been scoped through the colon and stomach but nothing was found, the scoping was done 4/2010. I have irritable bowel syndrome but my abdominal pain is present even when I am not having an IBS attack. I have problems with kidney stones but I expect kidney pain to be off to the right more. I have had almost steady nausea and increased pain during the last couple days and more severs pain along the right of my sternum at the bottom of my rib cage. My doctors do not seem to have a clue what is going on and it is getting worse.

Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum.

Since the pain is reproducible on application of pressure, it seems that it could be due to a musculoskeletal problem.

In addition since most of the investigations have already reported to be NORMAL, you need not be worried at all.

Symptomatic relief by taking a ibuprofen , during the pain episode might be helpful.

I hope this helps.
