Describe associated symptoms not listed above: Quite a few years ago I began to have a slight twinge in the area of my solar plexis. Went through all kinds of tests by a gastroenterologist and finally it was chalked up to IBF. It has gotten progressively worse but the next time I went back he came up come up with the same diagnosis because he couldn't find anything else. But that was still quite a few years ago. Now it's really pronounced and the twinge radiates down my legs and I can feel it in my ankles. Some sort of nerve thing???? It happens at night in bed mostly. Any idea what this might be?
Please include tests and relevant studies here. Endoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI (or catscan) of my abdomen. Again all quite a few years ago.
Please list any chronic medical problems and also list any prior surgery (lacerations don't count!): Used to have chronic fatigue - but it has been under control for quite awhile.

I'd like to know what this is since it's getting progressively more intense. Or what type of physician I should see and what to tell them. When I try to describe it no one seems to have any idea what it might be and tests don't find anything. But the feeling is like the fright/flight internal shock.
May we send you a satisfaction survey after your question is answered? It takes a minut to fill out.: Yes
