I've just been to see a consultant at Bedford hospital because I've been suffering with agonising pain attacks and on and off (more on than off) mild to moderate pain in back, under ribs, down arms, under armpits, pressure on breastbone.
He thinks it's more than likley to be gallstones so I'm getting an ultrasound and if that doesn't show anything then he said he could do a different type of scan.
I also mentioned sometimes food gets stuck in my throat on occasion so I'm getting an endoscopy in 4 weeks with biopsy taken of my gullet. I also have a 2cm sliding hiatus hernia.
So what I want to know is has anyone here been 100% convinced that they have GERD and or their problems are stemming from having a hiatus hernia BUT it turned out to be gallbladder problems?
I thought I knew what's wrong with me (Gerd) but now it my be gallbladder. I'd researched all about the Nissen Fundoplication surgery and everything.
Plus can someone give me tips on how to deal with gallbladder attacks and how to prevent too many attacks (I've had 2 painful attacks in 2 days )
