hoping someone can help I feel I'm going around in circles! 4.5 years ago when I was pregnant with my second child, I started suffering from abdominal pain and vomiting after eating fatty food. Thinking this was pregnancy related I got on with it and was very careful what I ate. A year later I had stabbing pains under my right ribs a few times a day for a few days, I saw the doctor who sent me for an US suspecting gallbladder but this was a few weeks later when I was no longer in pain. The test was clear. The past year my digestion has not been good and I have felt very bloated, hard to lose weight although following low fat slimming world diet. At the end of Jan my husband took me out for dinner to an expensive restaurant we had a lovely meal (albeit fatty, unlike my usual diet) a couple of hours later nausea hit, stabbing pain under ribs, diahrrea and severe vomiting. Afterwards felt better but tender. The pain since then has never gone away, whenever I eat anything even plain salad the pain increases, nausea and feeling tender, bloated tummy. I saw the gp who thought it may be an ulcer but tablets have not helped. I've had another US today they wouldn't tell me the result I must wait till Thursday. the pain is now going through to my back and down to my right side underneath my ribs. The US scan was very painful.
Does this sound like gallbladder problems? I am terrified the gp will say the US is all clear on Thursday and send me home with Gaviscon!
sorry for the long post but I'm at my wits end, I just want to feel normal
