Hi im new to the site and so happy i have found it as i have been having the worst time being diagnosed with multiple gallstones and a possible gallstone stuck in a bile duct. Before finding out i had gallstones i had been to A&E about 7 times and was admitted to hospital twice for infections and feeling very unwell which they thought was pancreatitis but luckily i didnt have that but i have got elevated liver at 72? not sure what that means. before they found gallstones i had already had about 3 major attacks over the years but never new what it was and on this major attack i couldnt take it anymore so i went to the doctors and A&E etc.At first they thought i had gastritis and acid reflux and gave me stuff for that which didnt work so i went back and saw another doctor who was great who said i think you need a scan on your gallbladder for gallstones turns out she was write i had multiple gallstones and was advised to speak with a surgeon which i have now done as being admitted to hospital twice i am now on the hot list for gallbladder removal.I have been having blood and white blood cells in my urine aswell which they think is uti infections but ive had about 4 of these since being ill with this huge gallstone attack and nothing seems to be clearing it up? so im not sure if the infections are linked some how? ive been feeling so unwell since all this which after having this huge attack i have not felt the same since and not sure if i should be feeling like this so would love to here from anyone else feeling the strange symptoms and if they are to do with the gallstones or if its something else aswell. here is my symptoms.I get pain in the middle of my chest and right side pain under my rib which radiate to my back and sometimes all over the right side of my stomach even near belly button and sometimes radiators to groin and lower stomach aswell.I also have a strange shooting pain on my left side to under my rib.I feel shaky inside, sometimes hot sometimes cold with chills and sometimes feel like a flu type feeling is the best way i can describe it. i get dizzy, feel sick and can hardly eat anything. Ive been on a low fat diet as advised by surgeon but even low fat food makes me feel very ill after eating it as if i cant digest anything then i start to feel very panicky and then have panic attacks which then drained me so much i cant keep my eyes open and have to lie down as to feeling so drained and tired and weak. I also get this debilitating tiredness where i have to lie down and go sleep alot and which also causes alot of brain fog and i dont feel with it is the only way i can explain it. I also get diarrhea sometimes and then constipation with feeling nausea alot to and have been sick a few times to. I get dizzy and sometimes feel like i could faint and feel generally very unwell even to the point that my skin feels hot on the outside sometimes and i get alot of muscle aches to.Theres more symptoms aswell but ill note these for now. Sorry for the long post but im so scared of what is happening incase its not just gallstones and there is something else seriously wrong and that the doctors have maybe missed something as i feel so unwell all the time there is not even one day that i feel ok and i always feel the pain on my right side. please help and let me know if any of you feel these strange symptoms with your gallstones and gallbladder. many thanks and hope to hear from someone soon.
