    I went to A&E with really bad pain in my flank.. they just gave me pain killers and a blood test and sent me away. The Dr said he doesnt need to do any further investigating as a blood test rules out anything serious... surely this is BS? a normatl blood test cant pickup serious diseases..?

    It can rule out anything serious that would cause pain where you were feeling it e.g it can prove as indicators for anemia, infection, inflammation, organ failure
    If you're unsure about what they did, including which blood test was done, ask your GP, They will receive a letter soon about your hospital visit which would include your presenting complaint and what they did. (takes up to a week).

    It can pick up some things, yes. I know from experience having not expected the test to show anything. If it does, they will then probably choose to do different types of blood tests to investigate more

    Blood tests along with your symptoms and examination can be used to say that there is nothing life threatening to cause your abdominal pain.

    If the pain is still an issue you need to see your GP

    If it comes back occasionally it's probably lifestyle related
