I've had X-rays and cts and blood work and done everything I can but nobody can tell what's wrong with me. I have right side pains from dull to sharp and I'm dizzy, have indigestion, tired and just fee all around sick.

It is my upper and lower right side of my abdomen, I am dizzy at random times throughout the day and it doesn't get better with food water or rest. I do check my blood sugar levels when I feel like this and also when I feel 'fine' and they're not very different it makes me not want to eat but I know the difference between needing to eat because I feel sick and the way j feel 99% of the time. My mom thinks it could be ovulation pain, because it really acts up the same time every month, about a week before my period

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for help.

It appear that you have consulted a physician, had diagnostic imaging studies, and blood tests.
I don't know how much I can add or help, but I will try my best.

Specifically, is the pain on the upper right side of your body, like shoulders and chest, or upper right quadrant abdominal pain, in the area of your liver and gallbladder, or lower right quadrant pain, such as where your appendix and ovary are located?

When did the pain start? What precipitated the pain, such as straining or eating a certain food?
Is it constant or does it come and go?

Anonymous, you mention that you suffer with indigestion. Have you consulted with a gastroenterologist? Have you had an upper endoscopy?

You mention that you feel dizzy. When does this happen? When you get up in the morning?
Does it occur throughout the day?

Have you had your blood pressure checked recently? Have you had your blood sugar levels checked? Do you keep well-hydrated throughout the day?

I know I have asked a lot of question and provided no answer. With more information, I might be able to offer possible causes, which you can discuss with your primary care physician.
