Hi! I have severe stomach problems. It all began in November of last year. I was eventually diagnosed with a bad gall bladder, and I had it removed in January. I now have constant pain under my sternum, and it is very tender. It really doesn't seem to matter what I eat, it just hurts all the time. On a scale of 1-10, it is on average a 7. I have gotten so used to it that I can tolerate a 7. I am at home right now because it is probably a 9, and I am missing school. I am so sick of this. I used to go right from basketball practice to soccer conditioning and be fine. Now I can't run at all. This sucks. I have had every test you can think of. I believe it is not digestive, but I don't know what to think. Here's what I don't have.
1. Acid reflux
7. Auto immune disorders
10. I'm not pregnant
13. Lactose intolerance
Despite being told by many doctors, THIS IS NOT ALL IN MY HEAD!
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!:)
Also, I have an appointment for the Mayo Clinic at the end of October.
