I need some advice from people out there of what might possibly be my issue. I have upper right abdominal pain that is like a sharp stabbing pain that comes and goes about every hour. I'm always nauseated and vomit frequently. I also have lower abdominal pain on the right side that mimics the upper abdominal pain. The upper pain radiates to my mid-back and the lower pain radiates to my belly button region. I run fevers and then my body temperature drops real low and then is normal. I feel generally bad all the time and I don't know what's up. I've had blood tests and they were all fine. I've also had an ultrasound of the abdomen and it was okay except I have fatty liver. My gallbladder was removed several years ago. Could this be kidney stones or appendicitis? My gastroentologist didn't do any tests since the ultrasound came back normal. Should I accept this or find another doctor? I think something is wrong, but don't want to make a big deal out of nothing.....any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

If you feel something is wrong, you would not be making a big deal about it if you found another doctor. It sounds like you are in genuine discomfort. If my questions weren't answered, I would see another opinion.

good luck!
