just been doing some research and found this site.
i have been having 'attacks' since march. my first attack woke me in the early hours of the morning. i thought i was having a heart attack!
i struggled down stairs and was about to phone for an ambulance when all of a sudden it stopped!.
i had my next attack a few weeks later. lasting a little longer than the 1st. i decided to go and visit my doctor. he prescribed me indegestion tablets.
i thought it was a little odd as it didnt feel like indegestion and it didnt have any patern to it (apart from wakin me in the night).
to cut a long story short (well i will try to) i had a really bad attack in september that started around 11am and by 4pm i was screaming and crying and thrashing about. my neighbours called me an ambulance. when the paramedics arrived i was asked lots of questions and there diagnosis was it was probably 'wind' because i needed a poo! i was screaming for pain relief. and they gave in and gave me gas and air. still didnt take all the pain away but the relief was great.
they finaly took me to hospital where the doctors did some tests. the pain finaly went off about 7.30 and they didnt have a clue what was wrong with me so they sent me home.
well i woke up next morning at 3ish screaming and shouting and my mum rang an ambulance (im a single mum so my mum was helping me with the kids). when i got to the hospital i was given x-rays and put on a ward.
a doctor came to see me and said she suspected gallstones and would arrange a scan.
i had my scan and asked if i had gallstones. the reply was 'oh yes you definatly have stones'. i asked how many and was told there is too many to count! and i will probably need an op.
i had a massive attack last week when once again the ambulance came for me. i was eating a cushion when they came to try and stop me screaming as my kids were in bed. this attack was the worse by far. i just couldnt stop vomiting (even threw up on my poor cat). so i was given quite a bit of morphine. i could have kissed the paramedic :D
im now waiting for my appointment to see the consultant to arange my op.
is anybody else worse at night? mine usualy starts at 2am. i have had a few in the day but not really bad ones.
well i guess i should shut up now. hello to you all
