I have had right sided abdominal pains off and on for 4 months. They are dull pinching type pains that only last a few seconds and disappear. The migrate all over my right abs from the bottom of my ribs to my hip bone, around my side and into my mid back. Does this sound like nerve pains?

I am a 40 year old female. I had a perianal abscess drained in November. My stool and urine are ok, I notice the pains more when I have to have a bowel movement sometimes but not always. It happens off and on through out the day. I don't notice it when I'm not thinking about it. It's been very worrisome for me so I notice it more when my anxiety goes up because of it. No abdominal distention or past illnesses. I am hypothyroid but taking 150mcg of levothyroxine daily. I have had 2 CT scans done that showed a subcentimeter cyst on my renal parenchyma, and the perianal abscess. It also showed a cyst on my right ovary. On the 2nd CT scan, it reported my kidney was normal. It didn't mention the cyst again. All of my bloodwork was normal. The Dr's ran a full CBC and CMP three times and all with normal results. I followed up with an ultrasound of my ovaries and HIDA scan for my gallbladder. Both of which came back normal. I have been under a massive amount of stress for the past year, and I was prescribed 5, yes 5, rounds of antibiotics for the abscess. It was drained after none of the antibiotics were successful. The perianal abscess has since come back, not as bad, but will seem to get much better, then fill up, pop and drain again.

When did you have last tests?

Do you take any medicine now?

My last bloodwork and CT scan was 7-30-17
As of right now, I only take my Synthroid.
I do take Metamucil 2tsp in 8oz of water twice daily as well. I did start this right about the time the pains in my right side started.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I should add too that I have really bad health anxiety. I am very scared as to what could be causing this. I notice the pains are worse when I am worrying.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The HIDA scan was in November. All the results where normal.

Please wait.
I am writing the answer.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The pain does not sound like a serious issue.
Nerve pain would not spread over such large area.
There can be intestinal cramps from gas.
Irritable bowel syndrome is possible.
It can be related to anxiety & stress.
You can discuss with your doctor about prescribing mild anxiolytic or sedative.
You can try Gas X , meanwhile.
It would help to reduce gas, cramps.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
