Lower right abdominal pain

    Hi all,

    For about 6 months I've had lower right abdominal pain, right around the pelvic bone. It's sharp and focused (except when it's not) but also dull and aching - surprisingly so, like I've been punched and bruised. It came on after a long drive in a very old car, stayed for a month or so, then faded to nothing for about a month or so, then has come back and left, up and down, and now kicking the crap out of me.

    Of course I've been to the doctors - they found a kidney stone, fatty liver, and an umbilical hernia, but none of these would cause pain (they tell me based on locations etc...). The only test left to do is colonoscopy, but I did a fit test not long ago that came back normal. My entire right side of my body has always been an issue - muscles here are always twice as stiff and three times as cranky as my left side.

    I've had a long history of un-explained pain - raging heartburn, neck pain, etc. I fit the profile of a people pleaser, always repressing myself, have very stressful jobs and can't relax. I'm hyper stressed now. Sold my house and moving my family in with my mum in the old family house (she's taking the suite). It should be super cool but I'm up to a 10 as the move comes closer.

    Has anyone here had sharp or dull (but serious) aches in the lower right torso? Not back, but above and around the hip?

    Hi @Some Guy and welcome.

    A lot of new members are engaged in this search, which is to find someone with the exact same symptoms they have. I'm bumping this thread, but it's possible that all you'll get is responses from people who have perhaps had something similar, but not really the same. The good news is that you've been checked out, and are now taking the first steps to explore the possibility that your symptoms are stress-based rather than strictly physiological. The second step will be to explore one of our free programs and understand that our brains are in charge of all physiological processes, and that they can create symptoms for no reason other than to create fear.

    So the question you need to ask yourself is this: Are you willing to accept the fact that you might not find reassurance from someone with your exact symptoms, and forge ahead on a new and different path, or are you going to allow your brain to keep you in fear while you continue to search for the perfect response? Because I can assure you from personal experience that your brain's goal is to convince you that you need to keep searching for a different answer - and that you will never actually find it.

    I recommend going to our Success Stories subforum and do a keyword search for "pelvic pain". Pick the results tab for "our forum only").

    Good luck!

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks very much for taking the time to reply. You are probably right. Like so many others I'm not 100% convinced that there isn't something more going on, but just the Dr's havn't found that yet. I think most everyone here has been down that road....
