I have just had an attack or whatever it is im getting every so often.
I dont get it as bad as ive just had frequently, the last attack put me in A & E for the day to be told it could be gall bladder or cholecystitis.
I got my gb scanned in December 2013 and was told it was fine.
Now im waiting on a HIDA scan which im dreading.
This is what happened today...
I had a sandwich ( egg and cress) I had a large starbucks strong hot chocolate with soya milk and sugar free hazelnut and then stupidly ate a cinnimon bun.
Withing about an hour this familiar but rare excruitiating pain came over me. I find it hard to explain , it is in the upper part of my stomach right through to my back, its the worst cramping pain ive ever had, almost like a contraction.It makes me sweat and feel nauseous, it lasts for about 20 seconds then eases off, to return again about every 10 mins.
It almost feels like chronic indigestion, but the pain is so deep within my stomach and back it just doesnt feel like normal indigestion.
Even drinking water hurt me.
Now im hungry again and wont eat as im too scared the pain will come back. Im still getting spasms now.
Ive had two Gastro Docs and the last one is as clueless as the first one. He wants to give me the HIDA , other than that I honestly do not think they have a clue what this pain is.
I also have a small benign echo free liver cyst which they are both 99% is not connected to this pain.
Please , does ANYONE recognise this pain? and please give me some insight into what this could be? I need to know so that i cant tackle it head on and try to keep this pain under control.
