Please help! I fell and twisted my ankle at the beginning of December. Almost immediately I felt an uncomfortable feeling on my right side under my ribs. By the middle of December, the feeling had not let up so I decided to go to the ER. I was diagnosed with hypertension and hypokalemia. They prescribed me blood pressure meds and let me go home after a few days. Still my right side didn’t feel quite right, so I found a doctor who did an ultrasound on my gallbladder and discovered polyps in my gallbladder. I also have developed a heavy feeling and discomfort on my right shoulder and right knee.
This new doctor thinks my gallbladder needs to come out, but is worried about my still high blood pressure. He is adjusting some of my meds to see if it brings my blood pressure down. He’s scheduling me for a EKG and some test on my kidneys. Do you think the high blood pressure is connected to my right-side discomfort? I’m also now feeling tightness on the right side of my chest and I’m not sure if that is from the gallbladder or these meds.
What does this sound like to you?
