Hello everyone -- A couple of weeks ago, after experiencing right flank discomfort for a week or so, I went to my primary care physician who suspected kidney stones and referred me to a urologist. The urologist didn't seem overly concerned and doubted he would see anything on my CT, which is scheduled for next week. THe blood test and urinalysis my physician ran were all normal, together with blood pressure, etc.
Since I first went to the doctor, my symptoms have changed, whereas now:
-- My pain, a dull ache, really, is primarily under my right rib cage, just below the final rib
-- ocassional burning sensation in the same area and more toward the center/left of my ribs
-- ocassional, more stabbing-like pain in various areas of my back, both right and left side, as far up as between the shoulder blades
-- some fatigue -- consistently falling asleep in front of the TV in the early evening. Pretty new behavior for me
-- Occassional mild nausea (no vomiting)
-- an occasional very loud intestinal gurgling
Do these sound like gallbladder symptoms? I;m wondering because I don't have any of the urinary issues that seem so common and no diarrhea/constipation, etc., No jaundice, etc., though I think I'm more burp-y and gassy lately. What do you think?
