I'm a raging hypochongriac, so bear with me.
I've been having upper abdominal discomfort, next to the right breastbone, and the occasion blip of pain on the lower right ribs. Ache seems constant in the chest, sometimes creeps up the right side of my neck and back right shoulder. Occasionally these areas seem to burn.
I've started the process of getting tested for gallbladder disease and hopefully have the results this Wednesday. Had an ultrasound two weeks ago, but the holidays have delayed the results.
I'm worried, because recently my stools have switched colors from normal, to clay, to light tan. They tend to run the gamut. Additionally, I've started to itch around my wrist, elbows and ankles (not persistant, but comes and goes... so anxiety, maybe or weather)
I made a trip to the emergency room a few weeks bad for an attack that bothered me and they did a liver function test that was all normal and well as blood levels.
I have an unnatural fear of it being something so malicious...
Just looking for comfort and wondering if anyone else had to handle these similar issues with their gallbladder.
