Jun 17, 2013 · Chronic Abdominal Pain in Digestive Health

Hi Danny – well I went to the Laser Spine Institute and had a conversation with two specialists. They indicated that this may not be the cause of my pain as the pain is concentrated at the front. They recommended that I have a MuscoSkeletal ultrasound to see if I have a torn tendon, muscle in the sternum and chest area. Oh the saga continues. I will let you know what I found out. Let me know how you are during. This is so frustrating living with pain on a daily basis and not finding answers. Hopefully we can both find out what is going on with our bodies. Take care and keep me informed

Hi Danny – I am so sorry to hear you are going through the same issues tHat I have been going through. I honestly feel for you because I can appreciate what you are going through. It’s so hard to deal with the pain on a daily basis. Wanted to give you an update – I went to the Cleveland Clinic and saw an Internal Medicine Specialist. I also started to develop a numbing in my left leg. He said that I should have an MRI done on my thoracic spine. Well it turns out that I have a big bulge in between T5 and T6 vertebrae. Supposedly the nerves that run from this area control the abdomen and under the sternum area. I am going to a spine clinic and will let you know what they find out. Keep the faith it’s very hard to do – especially because I am on percocets daily. Take care Danny.

Thank you so much for you response. This has been a mystery to all specialists and all they say is that there is nothing wrong and then throw up their hands and say you are on your own, or to seek psychiatric help. This pain is driving me crazy and causing so much anxiety that it is hard to deal with on a daily basis. I have a Drs appointment after work today and will definitely bring this up to him to see if he can schedule the test. I can’t thank you enough for replying.

I have had acute abdominal pain since April 2011 and it has escalated over the months.. The pain begins early morning, remains unrelenting and escalates throughout the day. It is sharp at times and gnawing most of the time. It radiates down from my sternum and to the lower left of my abdomen. My family doctor nor GI specialists cannot find the cause. I have had CT scans, ultrasound, video capsule endoscopy, colonoscopy, blood tests, push endoscope, H pylori tests, ova stool test for parasites and MRI, to name a few. EVERY test result has been returned as “unremarkable”–no cause found. I am currently taking Paxil 25mg, Nexium and Oxycodein for the pain. Nothing has helped me determine the source of this pain. I am reaching out to this community to see is anyone has a similar experience.
