Keep afteryour doctors they'll eventually find it . I've had the same type of problems and it took  awhile but they finally found the problem by doing exploritory surgery. It ended up being my omentum was wrapped arond my intestine. it never showed on any test and it would hurt terribly.

I had the same problem. Was hospitalized for 5 days, all kinds of tests were run & everything was " normal"! They wanted to cut me open to look around & find out what was causing this pain. I said no. They wouldn't feed me ... They were sure it was my intestines, not! I ended up going to my internist the next week. She checked me out, felt my trigger points & found the problem. I had a frozen abdominal muscle. She gave me an injection in the correct trigger point &within 20 minutes all pain was gone!!!

I have had Abdominal Pain for almost 4 years. The Pain is always an 8 (which sadly you do tend to get used to but it has made a huge change in my life). When the Pain becomes a 10 then I know I have a "UTI". I have Never had a UTI in my life before four years ago. The Only way I knew this was because I had a urine test. I have No Other Symptoms of a UTI except the Pain getting Worse. I also have kidney stones (both sides) and have had many lithrotripsies including 5 in the last 4 years. I have had a "UTI" since 1/19/15 and the Cipro just isn't cutting it anymore. Yes, my dosage has been upped. I have seen a gastroenterologist twice also. Not One Dr can point me in the right direction. Living with this 10 Pain is Horrible. I know we all tell our Stories on here but what I don't know is if any Drs Ever reply. I have gotten my affairs in order because something is wrong with me and I am afraid I will just die one day while Nobody is Helping me. Nobody should Ever have to live this way. I am sorry for your pain. If you are lucky enough to get it diagnosed, please share. Thank you & Good Luck.

Might need to change your GI doctor or possible look up on the internet and see if there is any research hospitals near you. When I had the same problems as you my family got me into to see a GI doctor at Temple University Hospital. Which is a research hospital and the doctor found out the problem, I had gastroparesis.
