I get this pain on my left side, sometime front and sometimes back.

It twinges or sometimes it really aches and then it's gone.

I had my liver tested just a couple weeks ago and everything was fine.

What do yous guys think????

I dont know what it is from but i thought i would add.

Your pancreas is also on the left side. and of course their is a left sided kidney more towards the back.

Of course muscles/ligaments can hurt to. (i have had rib/chest pain from this).

I hope whatever it is stops soon.

Best Wishes [Smile]

Yes Randibear, I'm definitely herxing lately.

I get it in front and back and sometimes it hurts to touch it or push on it.

I wonder if it could be my large intestine? I think it happens more shortly after eating...I'll pay more attention.

What can I be taking to help the spleen, kidneys etc.?

I've been drinking lemon juice and taking milk thistle. I'm not sure how much to take though.

Thank you for everyone's replies...it really helps , especially when I'm in between Dr. appts. I'd be calling him every day if I didn't have all of you as a resource! [Smile]

Your spleen is on your left side. If you have babs, the spleen is under constant work. My LLMD told me to be VERY careful about the spleen and checks it religiously every time I have an appt. Also said not to do any rebounding (trampoline) or horseplay or anything where one might "bump" that area of the body.

Does it feel swollen to you? Maybe you should make a doc's appt, even your GP or something, to palpate it.

It is likely nerve pain. Around the 11th rib, pain commonly wraps around the front. It feels a bit like a burning deep pain, or a sharp shooting pain. It passes relatively quickly for most patients, especially if they rest.

they said if your spleen is enlarged is will feel like someone has put a football under your rib.

i get that sometimes, but i have very bad splenic juncture syndrome. something to do with my colon.

i have to take antispasmodics for it. the pain can get pretty bad.

might just be herxing....

I have this around my left kidney after 8 years or babs, lyme, and possibly bart.

I know that it is my adrenal glands, which sit atop the kidneys. When I started Isocort(for adenals), it went away. But, it comes back occasionally.

Hi, sorry about your symptom.
All I can tell you is that several years ago I too, started to have pain in my upper left GI quadrant.

Since I had my insides redecorated 40 years ago, we were not sure what organs or GI was involved.

I went to a GI guy. He said that they were fatty lipids or something - fat that hurts, basically. Sounds funky to me because it would hurt more or less depending on what I ate or what antibiotic I was on. Have been off all Rx's and testing Lyme-free for a year now until last week and now my gut hurts like heck.

I would also like to add that the year I was Lyme-Free I also lost 40+ pounds of overweight caused by the Bb and when the weight came off, i could SEE the cysts in my joints and now I can FEEL the bumps on my upper left torso quadrant.

I had a colonoscopy/endoscopy - CLEAN
because of my history, they ordered a CT Scan of the Torso - CLEAN.

BUT I CAN FEEL BUMPS. They hurt!
Fluconazole once a week helps now during rainy season in the desert and mold and bugs are happening. It is the only Rx I take except occasional pain meds. I am treated in an experimental project and we have moved from Prescription antibiotics to supplements and now food. We always chelated with cilantro.

I am 52 years and was probably born with Bb however we can prove energetically that I was positive-Lyme by age 17.
This last year I have been Lyme-free has been quite wondrous, but mold got to me and so did other infections here and there indicating I was not finished.

Klinghardt says that 1 in 4 mosquitoes carry Bb, every dog and horse has it, and Bb reproduce in the bladder which means if you have ever stepped barefoot in dog-pee... in other words, it is everywhere.
Klinghardt also said that in Germany, they found spirochete cysts on every public telephone tested - so being Lyme-Free is basically, temporary.

Since I am back to Lyme-positive, I can only assume that they have collected in my GI and came out recently when I had to chelate.

In me, chelation has been the key. Heavy metals, asbestos and other neurotoxins (plastics, pesticides and the like) HIDES virus, bacteria and Bb.
In me, the Bb is the last to show meaning I have to chelate, get sick with other things like Chlamydia, then deal with MOLD and then finally, the Lyme shows up.

Like an onion, I had to peel away at each and every bug and every time the Lyme was the last to show.

Good luck.
Cheers,
*BugBit*
