I had my first attack of what was thought to have been gallstones about 5 years ago.I had all the symtoms,the excruitating pain in my stomach,back and my right hand side around my rib cage etc.I was sent for an ultrasound scan but they found nothing wrong with my gallbladder,no stones were found present.Just 3 weeks ago I had another attack,i knew exactly what it was,the symtoms were the same as what i experienced earlier a few years before.I went to see my Gp she told me it sounds like gallstones.I explained to her about my ultasound that i had before but they found no gallstones,she said that sometimes they can go un-detected.she gave me omeprazol,i was told to take them for a few to see how i go,unfortunatly the pain got so bad that evening my husband had to call on the on call doctor out to see me,he said the same as my own Gp \"it sounds like gallstones\".He prescribed me sickness tablets and 30mg dihdrocodeine.These seem to ease the pain abit.Today i was sent for another ultrsound and the same thing happened no stones were found!!! I constantly feel bloated and feels like i have something stuck underneath my ribcage on the right side.
i am going to back to see my Gp next week to ask her advice of whats been causing me this pain,i am getting abit worried now incase i have an infection in my gallbladder.
If anyone else can shed any light on my situation i would be grateful for any advice.
also when i had my ultrsound today the radiography scanned my left hand side,but i get pain in the right.is this ususal????
