I obviously can't make any medical diagnosis, but the symptoms you listed are the symptoms my mom experienced just before her diagnosis. She had pain in her stomach that went around to her back and the only way she could sit comfortably was bending straight over with her head between her knees. She had to have several tests done before a diagnosis could be made. Early on the test results show nothing specific except enlargement of the lymph nodes near her stomach. Lucky for us, her doctors didn't stop until they found the real cause - pancreatic cancer w/ mets to the lymph nodes. For her, though, it took exploratory surgery. They couldn't be sure until they opened her up and had a close look. Please please please don't stop until you get a definite answer to what is causing the problems. Timing is of the utmost importance with this and many diseases. I wish you the best of luck in your search for peace and answers. Keep us informed as to your findings.
