Stomach pain, negative blood tests and x rays. What could be this?

Hi, my stomach really hurts and I've done lots of blood tests and x-rays at the hospital but found nothing wrong with me. For about 4 weeks my stomach has hurt and just recently I started having severe headaches to the point where I feel like I'm going to pass out. One doctor said I have "Mono" and the other one said "anxiety" and the other one said "appendicidus" I Just don't know who to believe anymore "HELP ME"!!!

You are suffering from stomach pain for the last 4 wks. You have done blood tests and X-Rays - No abnormality found out.
As you expressed vaguely stomach pain - possible, commonest causes are taken into account.
to arrive at a diagnosis
Appendicitis - Plain X-Ray abd. in erect posture + USG + clinical examination
Urinary tract Stone - plain X-ray KUB area + USG + History of pain and radiation + urine analysis
The more reasonable cause is Peptic ulcer - which could not be diagnosed by X-Ray or Blood test
it can be diagnosed by the way you express your pain and its relation with food, your diet habits
and tobacco etc., + clinical examination and if indicated Endoscopy.
If you treat the cause of pain you will be alright. As your drs have told you may have anxiety about so many factors which may be the cause of headache.
If it very severe, one sided then - migraine to be ruled out.
Eye test - if indicated
Best wishes

General Surgeon Dr. M Y Shareef's  Response
Hi! I am sorry to learn about your stomach pain. One thing you should be assured that it is not a serious issue as the pain is lasting for last 4 weeks, although it needs to be taken care of.
One of the most common cause of stomach pain now a days is our dietary habits. One should go for a lot of roughage and liquids which can prevent many stomach and intestinal disorders. Also one has to be careful to see the hygiene of the place from where one eats food from outside.
Your headches could be related to developing fever due any kind of infection like food poisoning which might have gone unnoticed. Also the head ache upto some extent could be due to your anxiety for not getting relief of stomach pain so long. Please get your blood pressure recorded.
However one should exclude any other organic causes of an abdominal pain by opting for an ultrasound of abdomen, and endoscopic evaluation of the GI tract if thought necessary by your doctor. I would advise you seek specialist opinion of a surgeon/gastro enterologist. I wish you an early recovery. Good day.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Packriswamy Sambangi's  Response
Abdominal pain is not serious and can be readily diagnosed and treated. It is important to be able to recognize symptoms that are severe.
There are so many potential causes of abdominal pain.
What type of pain are you experiencing., Is the pain throught your abdomen or is it confined to a particular area, It is stabbing and severe ,or is it dull ache. When does the pain occur? , is in the morning or night.
Treating abdominal pain depends of the cause. This can range from medication for inflammation, GERD or ulcers, to change in personal behavior for abdominal pain caused by certain foods or bevarages. In some cases such as appendictis and a hernia, surgery is necessary.
