Default But it doesn't hurt there...?

Can someone explain me, why doctors examine different places I express painful?

I've got this vague pain in my upper stomach for about nine months by now. I usually feel sick every morning when I get up, and sometimes pain is so strong it stops me for minutes. Then it goes away for several days. But anyhow, my point is that when I tell about this to doctor (three this far..) they examine my lower part of stomach. I point them where the painful spot is, and they give a rats ass. Even my ultrasound imagin doctor (right, that's fourth doctor) didn't took images of that area. He said I have a Helico and he doesn't even know why he must do imaging. All I got out from he is that and that painful place is my small intestine. But that would not make any difference because I have a Helico.
I went to tests and quess what? No Helico.

Celiac I've had for six years by now, but it doesn't explain my pain, specially when they sent me to specialist for my third upper endoscopy and he told my stomach is healthy and pretty pink. (well, thank you so much for that.)
All they say is eat medicament to treat heartburn, but I don't see reason for that because I have no that kind of symptoms.

One doctor said about the painful lump there is, that it's a torn muscle. (That's been there for six years by now... )And gave pills for heartburn.

I just feel they think I don't know how I feel and where my pain is located.

Because sometimes the originating point might be somewhere different. I have NF, and right now I'm going to start having my wrist looked at. Sometimes what we may think is minor or something else in a different part of the body, could be connected to where the pain manifests itself.

Well, referred pain from having ones abdomen inflated for girly inner parts work makes it feel like they are peeling one's shoulderblades off with a butter knife, the referred pain from breaking my rearmost left upper molar badly enough that it couldn't be repaired also hit whatever the tooth next rear from my left wolf fang and I have had pain referred from the distal [furthest away from the ankle] end of a bone to my ankle ... nerves is funky things ...

[and we don't even want to get into why a pinched nerve in my back doesn't hurt in my back but the entire outer edge of my leg has that numb pins and needles feeling *sigh*]

The first time I had kidney stones, it felt like I had pulled a muscle in my upper back or some such thing, and I suffered through it for several days before it finally got so bad that I couldn't sleep (and, of course, back rubs, heat, etc. weren't helping). I didn't suspect kidney stones at all because I had heard it described as "like having a knife in your side," but it didn't feel like that to me. Gallstones feel like the kidney stones but worse, to the point of throwing up, and the pain spreads further forward.
The fact that jellyfish have survived for 650 million years despite not having brains gives hope to many people.

One thing I've heard is that a lot of women die from what should be survivable heart attacks because they don't recognize the symptoms. The "classic" symptoms are only "classic" for men - and women frequently have different symptoms.

Yes, a heart attack in a woman can feel like indigestion.

I get referred pain all the time. Right now I have sharp pain in the back of my shoulder but the issue is really at the root of the nerve, inside my spine. It's the same with my gallbladder-like symptoms, my chest pain, leg pain (which scared me that I had a blood clot), etc. It's always in my spine, though. I don't have any other conditions even though I feel like I do.

After visiting hospital twice in three weeks with same pain and nothing on blood test, doctor sent ne to upper stomach ultrasound (I hope the ultrasound doctor don't tell me that it's helico - again) and gave me drugs to ease the pain. We'll see then. But I keep on mind those other possibilities you all mentioned. All good as long they try to find reason and not only offer me pills for stomach acids.
