Upper quadrant abdominal pain. I had my gallbladder removed

History: 49yr old black female, 5 6”, 220 lbs, diabetes/ hypertension . For about 3 mos now, I ve had constant, intense 24-hr pain in the right/left upper abdomen (sometimes felt in my back at the same points). It feels like my belly muscles are tightening to the point where I feel severe pinching sensations. I ve had x-rays, CT scans, an ultrasound, and an MRI , which came back negative. I also had a colonoscopy/EGD test followed by a CLO test that showed positive for the “H pylori” virus. I was treated with a 14-day antibiotic regime for the virus. On April 14, 2011, I had my gallbladder removed, but the pain still remains. On May 17, 2011, my appendix ruptured, had surgery and was hospitalized for 11 days. My upper pain still remains and is a thorn in my side. Pain killers do not help, only allows me to sleep. I read a post that mimics my pain symptoms in which she was diagnosed by a pain mgmt dr that she was suffering from tendonitis in the diaphragm. Could this be my problem?
