Is this anything to do with gallbladder

Posted , 6 users are following.

So for past few month I've been having the most god awful pains, not every day sometimes weeks apart but when they start it's absolutely awful. when I usually get them it often starts with cramping similar to period type pains then as the hours go on it gets worse and worse spreading up to my right side and into my back. when it's at it's peek the pain is so bad I throw up. also I sweat so bad it just pours off me I can't sit still etc and then just like that the pain dissaperears I've been to the hospital they did blood everything was normal apart from my inflammation marker which was raised so they did another blood test to check for infection that was raised sonrushed for emergency xray to find nothing the hospital sent me home in agony. dors any of the above sound like gallbladder/stones at all? Cos I'm at loss I don't know what to do xx

    Hi Jenna ..... I had my gallbladder removed in 2015 . At first I would occasionally get pains in my chest and upper back, but they didn't last long and I assumed it was to do with whatever I had eaten. However, after a few years the pains began to get very painful and more regular, so I went to the doctor. I had a scan which showed stones. Then one night I felt really sick after dinner - this went on all night, until in the early hours when I threw up my previous night's dinner, (which was hardly digested). I went straight to the doctor which confirmed to her I definitely had a suspect gallbladder. I would imagine you have gallstones, but I dont understand why they weren't picked up with your scan. Eating fat free food is a must if you do have gallstones and drinking plenty of water.

    You need to go back to the doctor; there has to be a reason for your pain. I'm not a doctor, but from what you say when you experience the very bad pain it sounds like the pain is being caused by a stone squeezing through a tube (sorry I'm not technical). But your pains certainly sound like you are describing a typical gallstone attack.

    Sending you very best wishes.

    you need an ultrasound of your gallbladder to find stones. They will harldy show up on any other scan. Also whoever reads the results sometimes miss them. Ultrasound is the only definitive way. I know from experience. You might be experiencing gallbladder attacks. If you have bad nausea all day and throw up quite often then I would say yes. And when you go to ER and they check blood they will always tell you that your blood levels are fine and send you home. To get attention from the staff you need to show much more pain in your face. That is what I did to get the help I needed. Good Luck.
