Hi I'm new here, and really need some advice! Back about a month ago, I started getting an upset stomach every time I ate. About an hour after I would eat, I'd feel full, like I needed to get sick, for about 4-6 hours (5-8 hours after the meal). Then on June 13, I had a severe pain, like someone had stabbed me through the back, mid chest (thought I was having a heart attack). I went to the ER, they did a full workup on my heart, and told me it was most likely a gallbladder problem. I went to my GP and they ordered an ultrasound. It came back normal, so I was put on omeprazole. As of today, nothing has changed, I am having crampy type pains in my lower right side (front and back) along with an occasional 'twinge' in the upper middle chest area. If I avoid eating, and only drink water, I feel fine, as I would normally. I don't feel hungry ever, but as long as I don't eat I feel good! As soon as I eat, I feel fine for an hour and a half or so, but then I start to feel really full, like I need to throw up for several hours. I called the Dr, and they want me to try zantac, I don't think it will help.
Additional background, my father died at 59 years old from pancreatic cancer, which most likely started in his gallbladder (we didn't perform autopsy so can't confirm), at least one of his 2 sisters had their gb removed, along with his mom.
Does anyone have any suggestions? anything I should try, or do I just push for the HIDA test?
