Has anyone been diagnosed with Abdominal Wall Pain

Posted by rufus444 @smiles444, Dec 15, 2017

Starting on May 1, 2017, I began having abdominal pain that wraps around to my left back. The first time it happened, I went to the emergency room because I thought I might have an apendicitis. The hospital did a CT scan of my abdomen, everything looked okay. I went to the emergency room several times over the summer with excruciating abdominal and back pain. I had a hida scan done, a colonoscopy and an endoscopy and CT and ultrasound scans of my abdomen. Everything looked normal. In September of this year, a doctor at Mayo felt the area on my abdomen and did a Carnett’s test. He suggested it could be abdominal wall pain. I have had two steroid injections and I am still having pain in the same area. Has anyone out there had this type of diagnosis and still having pain?

Also check MALS-Mesenteric artery ligament syndrome. It has all those symptoms. There’s a Facebook page MALS Awareness

No. MALS, like MAST, has a constellation of symptoms making it difficult to diagnose. A.C.N.E.S was diagnosed and named in 1926 long before all the scanning and high-level lab tests currently available. The only complexity in diagnosing A.C.N.E.S is physician ignorance of the condition. Most important: "It's a good time to be in the business of gastroenterology. Not only do gastroenterologists enjoy one of the higher annual compensations among medical specialists, they are also driving substantial earnings for hospitals. According to the Merritt Hawkins 2019 Physician Inpatient/Outpatient Revenue Survey, gastroenterologists generated an average net revenue of $2,965,277 in 2019, more than double that reported in 2016." (Medscape,1/31/2020) It doesn't pay to have simple tests and obvious diagnoses when you can pile on countless labs, scans, and other testing to benefit yourself and your medical center…
