My problems started about 4 months ago. At first it was a ridiculous amount of belching which came from what seemed way down in the old gut. Then pretty severe chest pains which ended me in the ER 3 or 4 times. Stress test, blood work, and several EKGS later my heart is fine. Then my stools became tan sometimes borderline yellow. Classic right shoulder pain, pain in upper right abdomen. I've even had it in my neck and wrap around to my jaw. That scared the life out of me as I know that's a sure sign of angina but upon further investigation it is also a very common hidden gallbladder symptom. All due to lack of bile. Now for the gross part. My stools as of late are somewhere between not quite diarrhea but not quite a fully formed bm. I have had ultrasound and they found sludge in my GB which I'm taking ursodiol for 6 months to try and clean out and prevent stones from forming which is fine and dandy except I'm getting worse not better. I believe this to be an under functioning GB. Just looking for a little reassurance in this belief.
