Question: Worsening Recurring Right Abdominal Pain

 Sunshine31A - Tue Jan 03, 2006 6:45 am

I have had recurring lower right abdominal pain, which first originated in March 2005. The first time the pain was a 10 on the pain scale. The original diagnosis was kidney stones. However the pain never completely went away which made the doctors rethink their diagnosis and then amend it by saying that they did not know the cause. Sometimes I can barely feel it and sometimes it is so bad that I can't stand the pain. With in the last week the pain in my lower right abdomen has been getting worse. It also feels a little bit different. It is more sever and the only thing that makes it better is laying in one position and not moving. I am in the military and have been shuttled from one doctor to another and do not have a primary care physician. Is there anything you can recommend?

If this pain is still unresolved, can you confirm if any imaging procedure was conducted on you? Is the pain associated with any gastrointestinal disturbances, such as nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite?

Yes, I did have all of those symptoms. After dealing with this for about a year my DR referred me to a surgeon. My new DR ordered quite a few tests and in the end diagnosed me with biliary diskenisia. I underwent a lap chole a week ago and already I feel better.
