I am a 45 year old female, of normal weight. For the past three weeks, I have been having symptoms which could be related to my gallbladder. But they come and go, so I'm not sure if that's normal.
1. Not horrible pain, but a gnawing ache below my right ribs. This comes and goes and has actually been gone for the past 4 days.
2. I feel like there is something bumping against my right rib when I sit certain ways.
3. Pain that is on my right side of my neck some days, and some days it is on or under my right shoulder blade, and some days it's in my right, mid back. It has also been on my right shoulder. It's never horrible pain, but definitely uncomfortable.
4. TERRIBLE heartburn that has just started this past week. I never usually get heartburn, so it's werid. Plus, nothing seems to help it. Not zantac, tums, etc. It's a terrible burning. This comes and goes too, but it's there more than it's not for the past week.
I do not ever have nausea or extreme pain. I also do not have diarrhea or any change in my bms (color or otherwise). I have been eating low fat for the past few weeks and sometimes I am pain free for 3-4 days, then it returns.
I thought that gallstones caused extreme pain where people ended up in the ER. I only had really bad pain one night and it was under my right shoulder blade. I couldn't sleep with it, so I took a Tylenol with codeine and it made it better.
Does this sound like it could be gallbladder related? I am thinking it may be time to go to the dr this week. Just don't want to go with "mild" symptoms.
