Hi everyone, I am 42 and was diagnosed with gallstones over 10 years ago. I have managed them with diet since then successfully until about 12m ago after the birth of my last baby. Since then I have gotten full blown attacks if I eat anything fatty but can keep them at bay with sensible diet, but the thing that is bothering me most is constant chest and back pain after most meals, approximately 2 hours after eating anything not totally low fat I get chest pains that radiate round to my back and under my shoulder blades, it's not as bad as an attack and no tenderness to press under rib cage it manageable with paracetamol and ibuprofen but lasts several hours and sometimes up to 24 hours when it starts
I have been putting up with it hoping it will get better but it's not it's going worse so I am going to have to go to the Dr. I have lost about 2 stone, not because I am not hungry but as I am scared to eat, I am still hungry and don't have nausea.
I have been Google and convinced myself I actually have something terrible now and left it to late and it's not my gallbladder. Only problems I can find is the pancreas that ties in with back and chest pain high up on both sides.
I do have lots of stomach gurgling and wind as well but no trouble with bowels.
So I am just seeing if anyone has had similar symptoms from the gallbladder and it wasn't anything else more sinister.
Thanks for any input to help put my anxiety at ease before I get the courage to go to Dr.
