I am woman, 44 and have some symptoms of gallbladder attack. For the past week i had problems and pain in abdominal area while eating, also chest pain, vomiting once, but overall I feel sick when eating or after eating, I also feel pain in gallbladder area (sensitive on touch). I went to the doctor and did some test, which are supposed to be normal??? Is it possible test show nothing, while I have gallbladder problems?
This sounds really strange to me?
What did doctor say? You are all right- test show nothing??!! Go there again!!! If I had my insurance covered, I would.
Maybe you should try changing your diet. Eat no fat food! Maybe this will help.
I am 33 weeks pregnant and was having Gallbladder attacks at 29 weeks. I had blood tests and ultra sound... both showed normal.
This past week the pain went from my gallbladder to the pancreas. (Breast line/sternum) It was very painful. Went to the ER. Took blood test (CBC) and found that my enzymes in my pancreas were nearly double what they should be.
Had another ultra sound of gallbladder, liver, pancreas... still normal.
After 24 hours of not eating, the enzymes went down.
Dr thinks although there are not stones, there can be sludge and the sludge went down the bile duct to the pancreas and casued a pancreatic attack.
Low fat diet is all they recommend and hopefully the problem will reside after delivery.
I was finally diagnosed with 8% function of my gallbladder after 16 years of dealing with nausea, dizziness, indigestion, weight gain, low blood sugar, shaking, sweating,pain, fatigue, weakness, pain, just very sick!!
When it first started I gained 15 pounds in a month and was throwing up on myself while driving.
Finally a new Dr. which is my Dr. at Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Center, listened and did a hida scan.
I would like to know if you have had the surgery and if you are sick from it or doing much better? I have read the horrow stories, but then again I wonder just how sick those people were before the surgery and for how long? If for this long, diarrhea might be worth it.
No such luck I had my gallbladder out a month ago and have already had 4 really bad stomach aches that keep me from doing anything but laying in bed. I never eat spicy or fried food. I only drink a half a cup of coffee a day and I can't imagine why I would be in pain. It definitely did not help having my gallbladder out. It now seems worse. I have been looking on the internet which my Dr says I shouldn't and it seems like there are so many people with the same situation. Great! I have found a site that tells what you should and should not eat. I am going to try that this week. It says no dairy no eggs no wheat no the only fruit is grapes and avacado cold water fish organic grape juice celery and carrots sweet potatoe beets green beans and beets
i had gangrein appendex which aslo showed normal, when they where removed i felt better, then after several more year, i have the stomach,pain chest pain, had my heart checked out, only to find i have a small artery disease and that i had a none functioning kidney, which ended up being removed, and i have had nothing but problems after that. I have
an adenoma on my adrenal gland, which monitors a lot in your system, but
i'm back to the gallbladder systems again, with all of pain. i have gone thru so many doctors just trying to get someone to listen to me, and to do
any thing, is close to impossible.
I have had a scan and they found that i had sludge in my gall bladder
What happens now and will the pain stop if i have my gallbladder removed? :'(
After the end of that prescription the beginning of mid January, I went back still experiencing the same pain but with a strange added pain in my right side. I originally attributed to a muscle strain or some symptom of mild constipation. At that time it would come and go for hours or days at a time. Mostly hurt with movement or bending over or sometimes after eating. She finally sent me to a GI specialist (an actual doctor since I had only been able to see a NP at the clinic). After my first visit explaining my symptoms he too thought GERD and did an endoscopy and ordered an ultrasound of the gallbladder just in case. Neither to any avail, only mild inflamation of the lining and negative for H. Pylori or Ciliac Disease. By this time the pain in my side was becoming more constant and severe. I went back and he ordered a CBC and a urine test to check for kidney stones. Still no idea what is going on. In the past few weeks I've had a CAT-scan and a HIDA-scan and they haven't shown anything either.
Two weeks ago the pain in my right side was so severe that I vomited 4 or 5 times in 3 days (either what little I was able to eat or drink or straight green bile). Now, however, the pain has subsided to coming and going--appearing sometimes when I move or bend over or after I eat. I'm honestly at a loss. We still don't know what is going on and I have been out of school for over a month (all of February and part of January). I'm very drained and emotionally upset. I want to know what is wrong and no one can give me an answer. Here is a more in depth list of symptoms (all of which to me sound like a gallbladder problem and yet nothing indicates that definitively):
Some excess belching with bitter taste
Loss of appetite/Weight (more than 15 pounds, and I was by no-means overweight before that)
Feeling of fullness/Never feeling hungry
Inability to have bowel movements (up to 7 or 8 days at a time and sort of pallid in color, I've had to frequently use laxitives)
Pain just below the right rib that radiates to the back (Sharp/Stabbing that comes and goes, at one time it was constant and severe)
Sometimes a dull ache behind right shoulder blade (not very often)
Sometimes a stiffness to my right elbow (I thought it was strained to all the times they poked me there for tests)
A low-grade fever off and on (anywhere from 99-100, only once 101, I normally run around 97.8 or low 98 something)
Feeling of chills or extremely hot
Headache above the right eye
Now some lower abdominal discomfort on the right side (not sure if that one is related)
Rare but present spasms in the stomach or area near the right ribs
I am a 23 year-old female with no possibility of being pregnant (I checked just in case it might of have been ectopic) and I'm almost certain it's not Hep-C because my husband and I are always safe and have had no other partners. I'm wondering if you can still have a gallbladder problem even if it doesn't show up on any test. Is there anything else it could be? I just want to know. I feel a little better than I used to and that concerns me. If it is a gallbladder problem, I don't want it to come back. I really can't deal with this anymore. I would also rather not go through any more tests and have them come back normal. At this point I'm worried it's all in my head and I've gone through all of this for nothing. I would like to know what anyone else has to say that I can ask my physician. I would hate for them to take it out and there be nothing wrong with it as well.
Thanks. All input is much appreciated.
