I have been suffering with pain in my upper right hand side for over a week now (across my breastbone and in my right shoulder blade) - I believe it is down to my gallbladder but awaiting a full diagnosis from the doctor. I am really worried having read a number of different sites that the pain will just get far worse that will be unbearable and it seems other than completely restricting my diet to no fatty foods whatsoever etc... there is nothing that really advises what you can do in the meantime to try and prevent an attack from happening or what types of painkillers might at least deaden the pain. I am hoping that I am worrying for no reason, but as I have just come off of a birth control pill (which I believe has exacerbated the symptoms) and am in remission for Graves Disease, this has caused my gallbladder to go into a meltdown.
I am looking for any advice on how I can cope with this long term. I am no good with pain and I am hoping that it won't get to that point, so if there is anything that has been tried and tested as working, I am all ears. Thank you.
If it helps, I am female, 38 years old and yes, I am overweight.
