I'm new here. Here's what's going on with me. 52 yr old healthy female. Non smoker/non drinker. Two weeks ago after I ate, was upset, I have twin girls 😇 felt nauseous , thought it was food poisoning or just from being upset. Threw up 5 x in a row, then felt so much better. Next day normal. No diahreah? Or anything, but started feeling flare up by gallbladder area. Upper right quadrant area. More discomfort, dull, balloon like feeling whenever I ate. Went to my Dr. Right away, all blood, urine, stool and sonogram test normal. She tested for everything. No gut bacteria etc. Yes, high cholesterol. Just did another cholesterol test yesterday, this time fasting. Results tmrw. I'm not in pain but flee ups come and go. I adjusted my meals to bland foods, salads, soups etc. Dr thinks, colicky gallbladder. No meds, just monitor. I'm frustrated because I've never had any issues. I just feel twinges from time to time and feels like a little balloon flare up. My question, how long will this continue, what can I do to relieve it, Is it safe to travel by airplane? Thinking of not making travel plans now, afraid of having a major painful flare up, which hasn't happened yet. Should I ask her to refer me to a gastroenterologist? Or give it time? I trust & like my Dr. Just would like your thoughts on this.
Thanks in advance.
