I was recently found to have this condition. I have been complaining to several Dr's about the pain for over 3 years now only to be sent to pain management, which didn't do a thing. I have been sent to physical therapy, pain management, blue laser therapy, had my gallbladder out & a colonscopy 2 years ago in which the Dr. did not find it. I am sure it was there as there are other issues in which he did not find either. The pain is unbearable at times, yet the Dr's blow me off as possibly looking for some kind of attention. I was shocked when I found this was my problem. I believe it happened during a surgery over 3 years ago as that is when the pain started & has never let up.

This is rather confusing at this time. But it's easier to understand here. Doctors have trouble in explaing how this occurs and what procedures to take. They explained that it could be avoided by diet if caught in time, but we didn't get a diet so far.
