I'm 25 years old female and previously pretty healthy.
On Jan 16th I started feeling sick. I was vomiting and had diarrhea, and intense stomach pain. Went to the doctor and we both thought it was the stomach flu. She prescribed me nausea and anti-diarrheal medication. And said I should start to feel better in a couple day.
Fast forward to 2 1/2 weeks and I still couldn't keep anything down and still had the diarrhea, and the stomach pain(stabbing) was constant. At this point I have lost 9-10 pounds.
So this is a total of 3 weeks I have been sick. I went back to the doctor and she thought for sure with all of my symptoms it was my gallbladder. So we did bloodwork, ultrasound and a stool sample. All of that came back normal. So she thought it was either an ulcer or Crohn's.
So she thought we should try Prilosec before we go the extensive root and do an endoscopy and colonoscopy. Day 2 of Prilosec and still same results still vomiting and the diarrhea.
I went for an endoscopy on 2/14. The doctor said everything was normal except for some Gastritis, constipation and also there was no ulcer. (I forgot I have been previously tested for Crohn's and it came back negative) I told him I can't see why I'm constipated because I've had so much diarrhea. He wanted me to take Mirlax and Zyntec. He then sent me for a HIDA scan for that Friday.
I've been taking 2 20 mg of Prilosec twice a day, Zantec and Miralax. Well I still have a stabbing pain in my right upper stomach that now radiates to my back and shoulder blade.
Got my results back from the HIDA scan and the ejection fraction is 85%. I go back to my Gastrologist on Thursday. And I need answers. I
I can't live with this anymore. I can't keep any food down and I'm so tired all the time.
So could this be an overactive gallbladder?
