I get woken up every morning with severe abdominal pain, anyone else going through this or ideas on what it might be?
Do I'm 22 yrs old and its almost a year now and still nothing. My gp has gotten me to do many scans, urine tests and blood work. I have tried IBS medications and emeprazole (i think its called, it's for reducing stomach acid). Im honestly at breaking point and i dont know what to do. Every morning at around 6am the pain starts in my abdomen, it's like a dull cramping/burning sensation that becomes excruciating after about an hour. I get out of bed to empty my bladder and i notice the pain goes away almost completely after that, so then I go back to bed. If i dont empty my bladder the pain gets soo bad that it radiates to my upper right back and i start to feel this sharp stabbing pain there. I do have some IBS. Can anyone relate. I've read online people having my exact pain for more that 20 years EVERY MORNING :(. Im terrified!
And yes I have seen a urologist and he doesnt seem to think its a bladder issue since the tests are all normal:(

you need to get an ultrasonogram
of the whole abdomen to find out
if you have kidney stones or gall
an infection in the gut can be a cause
so a routine exam of a stool sample
is advised to find parasites like hookworms
lastly a colonoscopy will not be a bad idea

It sounds like maybe you need to see a urologist. Have you tried to stop drinking anything earlier in the evening? And peeing right before bed?
