For more than ten years I have this gall bladder problems, and few times had very nightmarious crisis.I recently turned 24. The most weird thing is that the doctors dont find anything weird when i did ultrasound (no stones). I always have this dull pain under my right ribs. I also have hepatits B, and the doctor say that gall bladder is not affected by liver.  I am just feeling without any solutions, without hopes. (I cannot be active,  always have this pain, its so difficult to make some plans, no energy, cannot stand afoot long time because the pain get worst). Some long time ago the doctor told me i have dyskinesia, but it seems i have to accept this pain and suffer for rest of my life. Anyone can give me some advices what should i do.

    Hi stalker sorry to hear your suffering. Have you tried any alternative remedies? I would recommend milk thistle to detox your liver and gallbladder. Some people find it good for hepatitis too. By detoxing your liver and gallbladder it should help all your other symptoms too. Are you avoiding fatty foods too? X

      Thank you Acejohnston for your reply. Yes I take milk thistle and hepatic tea,indeed it took some of my pain away. I think my gallblader pain maybe in a way is connected with stress too, what do you thing? Is there some connections between stress and gallbladder?

      Yes i try to avoid fatty foods, yet I eat dairy products which may cause some pain too.

      I am vegetarian for almost 2 years now, I am thinking to start to eat meat again.

      Hi stalker I am attending an acupuncturist and am on Chinese herbs. She told me emotions are closely linked to all these illnesses. She told me that liver and gallbladder issues are associated with unresolved anger among other things. Yes stress has a big part to play in everything and how we deal with stress. Not expressing emotions she said causes lots of internal problems. X

    I know what pain youre talking about .. My pain started 2 years ago .. I had 3 ultrosounds , stomach xray , cheste xray, gastrosopy, and blood tests done which didnt show any stones or anything . my doctor even send my to physiatrist to see if im making this up . after gastrosocopy which didnt show anything she told me to learn to live with this pain . thanks to tose forums i knew about hida scan which i persisted to get it done . my doctor was upset and said i wont get aproved for it because all my tests come back normal and test is expensive .. I told her why dont we try it and see what happens . and sure enough got the phone call next day to come for this test . when i got my results the gall blader showe 19% ejection fraction . my doctor right away wanted to book me for surgery and i said ill wait because again thanks to those forums i know there is another way to avoid surgery . after this i booked appointment with herbalist , traditional chinse medicne doctor eho eas recomended. He told me it will take 10 weeks to cure my condition . but i have to stay away from fat, gluten and dairy .. Its hard but its been way to long with this pain and 10 weeks its nothing .

    Maybe u should ask for this test so at least ypu will know what cause your pain . and take it from there.

    Also dandelion tea is good . dandelion root, milk thistle .

    Hi i suffered for around 2 years with the pain and nausea and vomiting i was constantly being admitted to hospital and discharged saying they couldnt find anything. It kept happening and then i was taken by ambulance the pain was so intense i was crying and when the consultant came to see me i begged him to help me told him i couldnt cope anymore. He didnt 2 seperate ultrasound scans which show a couple of stones and sludge in my gall bladder he also carried out a CT scan and blood tests. They removed my gall bladder but still suffering with the symptoms i have been put on various medications. Friday i had to have some fasting blood tests which the are checking my inflammatory markers and the hormone levels which are in the lining of the small bowel the consultant said if the hormone balance is raised it can cause these symptoms. He has also took me to avoid fatty foods, advoid high fibre foods and eat gluten free foods.

    Hope you find some answers soon

      Its horrible to suffer and i really hope you get sorted. I am now on the look out for gluten free foods going to try that for a few weeks and track my symptoms. I really think it is trial and error. Hope you get some relief

      Thank you Elina for reply,

      I have my bilirubine very high for many years,

      The doctors say I have the gilbert syndrome.

      I am afraid I cannot have a surgery due to high level of bilirubine in my blood tests. I have to try my best run away from surgery. 

      Dont you have pain when going to gym? 

      Do you take any antivirals?

      What else do you take to fight hepatits, and support your liver?
