Gallbladder stones /ear ringing and tingling feet

Edited , 5 users are following.

I have earlier had non working gallbladder and recent ultra sound showed gallstones. I don't have severe pain, but have bloating and burping. This is going on for 7 years. However my most concern is past 5 years I have tingling in the feet and left thigh on and off and with dizziness and recently for past 1 month I have mild ringing in ears.Is these related to gallbladder ? Does any one had these symptoms and did removing GB solve these symptoms? Doctors are saying it is unrelated. Appreciate your reply.

My A1bc is 5.6.

B12 was low earlier, but taking shots which is normal now.

    Sorry, but removing your gallbladder won't resolve the tingling in your feet and thigh or ringing in your ear.  When I had gallbladder disease, I did experience dizziness, though. I think you should mention the tingling, because it could be related to nerve damage or circulation problems. 

    Best of luck to you.

      I can understand why it seems logical to tie these symptoms together, but the body is not a logical mechanism.  Sometimes, presenting symptoms aren't evidence of just one dysfunction, though they occur at the same time.  It's like blaming your roof for leaking when it rains, but not checking if there are holes in it.

      May be a separate problem as you mentioned. I do have gastritis and gallstones. When i checked on tingling in feet, my GP told it may be due to B12 vitamin deficiency or pre diabetic and some nerve damage cannot be reversed. But again B12 deficiency  occurs due to digestive tract disorder. I'm dealing with digestion issues for almost 8 years.

      Sorry to hear that this has been going on for 8 years!  I take B vitamins daily, though I realize that taking acid suppressing drugs and other digestive issues can lessen the bodiy's ability to absorb.  Unless you are pre-diabetic, I'd also look to other causes, such as poor circulation in the feet, which is what I have.  I need to keep my feet elevated when sitting and warm.  There is a supplement which is a natural acid that can be taken to help with this.  You can look it up on line.

      I wish you the best!

    pins and needles can occur from vitamin or mineral deficiencies. deficiencies are a common symptom of a person not absorbing these important nutrients. gallbladder issues will affect digestion. without good gallbladder function you will not digest food efficiently or absorb nutrients efficiently.

    but also need to rule out Diabeties
