Question: Hello I am just wondering who is considered the highest rated Chronic Pain Specialist for Chronic Abdominal Pain due to Endometriosis and 4 surgeries. Everything is taken out but I still live with Chronic Pain Daily. I currently have a Pain Management Doctor but she is very limited on what she can do and I am tired of my life basically being put on hold because I cant stop the PAIN....I will be coordinating care and having her refer me as I am not trying to Dr. shop just want to not be in pain and not be bedridden without meds. Please Help Me, Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXXXX

Dear Dr. XXXXXXX Thank You but I was respectfully asking and hoping that you could tell me of the best Pain Management from Stanford as I can drive a couple of hours but do not have the money or resources to get to Baltimore MD. I do not necessarily think that my case is Gynecological anymore since Everything has been removed. Do you know of someone at Stanford that would be willing to take on my case. I am aware that it is a complex case but I have been looking online to try and find a Pain Management so that my Dr. can refer me and I am having a hard time finding anyone in Roseville or Sacramento, Ca. area? Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXXXX

My 9 year old son has ulcerative colitis. Today he has had pain center stomach above the belly button area and now the pain seems to be under his right rib cage. Could this be from the colitis. We haven t had a bout with it since he was very young.

I have been having upper right abdominal pain for several mos now and Doc cant seem to find problem. I have had mri, ultra sound, slow stomach emptying test, endoscopy, and bloodwork. My gallbladder was removed in 2005 so that is not the issue. The pain seems to worsen about 20 mins after I eat or drink something. Mri showed simple cysts on my liver but doc says not cause of pain, endoscopy showed small hiatal hernia and inflamed stomach lining also says not the cause of the pain. I am pretty healthy 44 year old woman, I eat well and am not overweight. It feels like something is being pressed up against my rib cage causing the pain. but I supposed if there were some sort of mass the ultra sound and MRI would have picked that up... please help... --Mary
