ok so. I've recently been to the doctors and gallstones have been queried. The pain was so severe that 111 sent me an ambulance last Friday and it took 4 shots of morphine for it to go away. I was prescribed cocodamol and sent on my merry way. This pain is horrific. I am at a stage where I am taking 2 paracetamol and 2 tramadol (from my dad's stash) and they aren't working.... my symptoms are;
Pain kind of like trapped wind to start with in the centre top of abdomen. As the pain builds I am sore from this point all the way round to my back and shoulders.
it lasts between 2-5 hours.
loss of appetite.
pale coloured bowel movements
I have an ultrasound on Tuesday so I'll know for sure then but I'm more concerned that it's not gallstones and it'll be a fight to find out what it is....
I don't fit any of the usual categories like overweight, multiple pregnancies. I'm just a 31 year old female with a reasonably active job and child. I eat plenty of fruit and veg and do like the occasional take away.
I have removed all non essential high fat foots from my diet and it has helped a little.
do you guys think it is gallstones from your experience? I am exhausted
