Well Brenda, how about an official welcome to the forum then! Wish I could help you w/your question, but this reply will bump you up @ least. Your symptoms c/b from any # of things which is part of the frustration, however bouts of constipation can cause all kinds of discomfort. My mother suffered miserably w/IBS for so many years. My BFF had intermittent upper right side near diaphragm - dull aching/burning alternating w/sharp pain, sometimes radiating to upper right back shoulder area, then couple months later to lower back. All sporadic.
Two things were going on: gastritis dx'd first, then appendiceal cancer w/spread to peritoneum( as you might remember).
Let us know how CT results went.
