    Hi Sam

    You need to go to your GP, explain everything, especially ( gall bladder ). Could be scaring from that removal. You need to be checked out. CT Scan, MRI etc.

    All the best. Get back let me know the results.

      Thanks for quick response. I think I had them before the removal as my mom remembers me complaining before.

      I'll book an appointment for Monday I have mentioned it before as after the birth of my daughter I had them and was scared then he said it was anxiety so don't think he really takes me that serious.

      Thanks x

    Hi Sam

    Remind the GP every time you go to A & E it costs the surgury £75-00. I am treasure of my doctors PPG and NAPP also will be involved in CCG.  I am very lucky ALL the doctors/nursing staff are 100% plus brilliant. If I can help please let me know. Again all the best be firm with who every you see that the surgury. Mention the cost of going to A & E.

    Hi samfama83

    Could be just a strained muscle if you have been rowing alot. I would try and not worry to much, (easy to say), but see you doctor and tell them of your concerns, its probabaly nothing, but better safe than sorry.

    All the best and let us know what happens.

    Happy Christmas to you.

      Thanks for that. Haven't worked out since August pre gall bladder removal so can't be that. My left arm is a bit numb too which adds to my concerns

      Happy Christmas to you and yours too
