I am at the end of myself with this 'mystery illness'...I have had small episodes for years in my mid stomach(above the bellybutton right below the ribs-right in the center) they have been uncomfortable almost like really bad gas pain, laying down for a while usually solved the problem and i never though much of it when it happened--about one and a half-two years ago i had my 1st major attack, I thought it was some crazy flu bug the pain in my upper stomach was insane and it went straight through to my back-i was sweating and nauseous-no pain killer i took would touch it and it lasted about 3 days--no positions made me comfortable and I spent the whole time crying but I figured its a virus of some sort so why bother going to see a dr...since then ive had lots of nausea for no apparent reason, then i had another major attack this year right around thanksgiving that lasted about a week-this time i went to the er when it wouldnt leave after so many days they gave me prevacid-thought it was an ulcer but also booked me an ultrasound for my gallbladder because i pushed for it...gallbladder came back normal-after 2 months i had another attack...so i had an h.pylori test and a barium swallow--all normal and i am still nauseous i have what i call mini attacks--pineapple seems to aggravate so do chiropractic treatments and i am starting to think exercise might...i am so frustrated! does this sound anything like what anyone here has been though??!!During a major attack the pain is through the roof--definately a 10! Its very depressing :o(
