Ended up going to ER last night because I was having such bad upper left abdominal pain, they did blood work and an xray...the Dr said blood work was perfectly fine and said the xray showed I was backed up said that is the reason for pain he prescribed a laxative... he said because the blood work was good I don't have lymphoma ...not sure if I'm confident in that though

Pigman,

Sorry to hear you're still having stomache pain. Did you get to see a doctor about it or just the ER doctor? I'd ask to see a specialist. They may need to do a colonoscopy to check things out. How's your diet? Are you eating plenty of fruit and vegetables?

Gall bladder is on the right side.

yes the gall bladder is on the right side ,, but when it needs to come out, it throws pain all around your gut and into the back!!!

Yes I have definatly had Lyme symptoms, my Lyme test came back negative tho...the lab advised me to wait a couple weeks and do another blood test

Actually Im a pretty easy going person but the stress of the lymph node/ stomach pain started getting to me so yes I'm sure some of the symptoms are caused by stress
