URQ Abdominal pain every year
Starting in November 2016 I had a slow sudden onset of abdominal pain in my Upper Right Quadrant. It lasted for a few hours and I developed a fever/Chills for 4 days afterwards. Later in the same year I began having a slow onset of abdominal pain which would start as an uncomfortable pain in the upper right quadrant feeling pain on the top of my right shoulder. This pain would increase to about a 7-8 on a 1-10 pain scale. I self-admitted to the hospital on numerous occasions only for the pain to suddenly subside in a matter of 30 or so minutes. I went to a Gastroenterologist and had testing, but he could not determine the cause of my pain. This pain went away in January. I had every conceivable blood test taken.
In 2017 the pain returned (Again in November) and again I self-admitted to the Hospital (Only for the pain to go away in about 30 minutes to an hour) and started seeing my Gastroenterologist again. More tests/Scopes/Ultrasounds/MRI’s etc. and again nothing. The Pain would last anywhere from 15 minutes to an Hour. I tried a different Gastro doctor but again he could find nothing wrong. The pain subsided in December/January. The pain seemed less severe than the year before.
In 2018 the pain again started this time in December & Lasted until February 2019. I began seeing an Eastern Medicine doctor as I could not get any answers from any of my doctors. The pain seemed even less than the previous year. Again, NOTHING abnormal was found whatsoever.
I now have begun again to have the pain in September of this year. The pain is now quite severe. I almost vomited from the pain the other day. I’ve had two bouts and they lasted 20 minutes and 45 minutes respectively.
The pain begins slowly and culminates in extreme pain, then disappears within a minute or two entirely. (Again lasting from 15-60 minutes) My dieting/exercise/locations, etc. do not in any way seem to be causing my pain. I eat, exercise, wear the same clothes, etc. etc. The pain only seems to occur for a few months and the rest of the year I’m just fine.
I am a 52, White Male 6’ 230lbs. I have had my Gall Bladder removed (Late 90’s) , Had a Hemorrhoidectomy (2016-2017), a Septoplasty in (2013). In the last two years I had two bouts of shortness of breath believed to be Allergy related and were cleared up by Albuterol treatment.
My Self Diagnosis (What else can I do) is either some sort of Adhesion or Sphincter of the Odi.
Any advice or insight is appreciated. (Please do not advise me to see yet another doctor, as they cannot find out what the issues are.)
