I've had a weird pain in my side for at least five or six years. I've asked a couple doctors about it and none of them have any idea - most guesses run somewhere in the irritable bowel syndrome category.
The pain is always in the exact same place: on my right side, just below where my waist curves in most. The amount of pain I have seems to correspond with how recently I've eaten - worse before eating, better after. It's not really a dull ache, more of how a sore feels when you turn the wrong way or something, like that sudden OUCH and then it's gone.
Once in a great, great while, the pain is so bad that it makes me catch my breath, stop what I'm doing, etc.
...actually, writing this all out makes it sound much worse than I realized.
Any guesses as to what this could be? Or any suggestions as to what kind of specialist I should call to get this better figured out?
Thanks a ton, Hive Mind. :)
