Abdominal pain mystery

3 weeks ago I found myself in the ER for severe abdominal pain. A full panel of lab work was taken, along with a CT. Nothing was found, and I was sent home in more pain than when arrived. That week I saw a Primary Care physician and a GI specialist, both unable to find the source of the pain. Since then, I have been up nights in pain, unable to pass food, and have been living a shadow of the life I know due to discomfort and pain. My GI wants to do a colonoscopy, and possibly further tests to determine what the issue is and see if we can finally fix it. As I am a former university student, I have been living with my parents as I pay student debt, and, as I am typically a very active and very healthy individual, who always does what I can to take care of myself, I failed to put aside money for medical expenses and have a high deductible insurance. The procedure has to be paid for beforehand, as well. I am hoping a few kind souls might find the desire to help me financially on this painful and frustrating journey. Even something small would go a long way. The goal listed covers my ER visit, colonoscopy, and the possibility of another further set of diagnostics. Thank you all in advance, and be sure to take care of your wonderful bodies.
