Left Flank Pain

@gingerw Thank you for responding. I am glad to be here. I am at a loss because every specialist I've gone to besides the GI specialist has told me they can't do anything for me and brush me aside. My PCP has been amazing. As for the injury or trauma to the area the answer is no. I have an office job and go to school so I don't much of anything besides work and school. I am wondering if it is not internal to any organ, which the imaging shows, if maybe something outside my kidneys or colon could be the cause. Maybe some sort of tissue growth such as scar tissue, though I don't know why I would have scar tissue. But maybe it could be my spleen causing my pain. I have also considered it being some sort of blockage in my circulatory system in that area. I found something called Nutcracker Syndrome that matches a lot of my symptoms but I don't know.

@bhinsley If you are near a large hospital, or a teaching hospital [usually associated with a university, ask to get referred there to an internal medicine doctor. Of course, if you are near a Mayo Clinic campus, or the likes of that [John Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic, Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, Sloan Kettering in New York, for example] can you see about getting in to one of those places?

No patient deserves to not feel heard, nor taken care of!
