Yesterday I felt awful. Just very tired, and my stomach (both upper and lower) wasn't feeling the best. I ate something terrible the night before (Jack in the box tacos, so yummy, yet so evil on my stomach). So I figured that's what I could contribute it to, and consider it punishment for having something like that to eat!
 
However I woke up at 2 am with this awful pain in my upper right hand side of my abdomen. Now I do NOT have my gallbladder, so we know that's not it! I took an acid reducer pill, and put a heating pad on my stomach for 2 hours before I finally went back to bed (where either the pain stopped or I just passed back out).
 
Today I still am having some small pains there. I've gone to the bathroom more then a few times over the last 2 days. Not D though, it's been normal, except for some pain. So this isn't like my typical Crohn's attacks where I cramp up and have D for hours on end.

My DH had an ultrasound once for pain in that area and it just showed gas in his colon that wraps around that area. Maybe that's it? I don't know what could be causing pain there since I have no gallbladder! :(

I have an upper right hand side pain from time to time, too. The last time I had it, my GI said it was probably a buildup of small bowel bacteria and put me on Xifaxan, an antibiotic for 5 days. The pain went away.

However, I will say when I have that pain I get sent to the bathrrom with loose BM's...but I suppose you could still have the bacteria with normal BM's.

Oh really? Guess that's something to keep in mind then. It's doing some what better tonight. I get little pains here and there. So we'll see how I feel tomorrow. Of course everything always happens on a weekend!

I was doing some reading, I wonder if I could be Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction? Over the last few years I've had attacks of pain, vomitting, and D. They always land me in the ER. Unfortunately they always tell me it's just the stomach flu, or possibly my Crohn's acting up. But it makes me wonder? This time it's just been pain and a queasy stomach. I wouldn't even call it nausea. I remember last year during a similar (but much worse) attack I had bad pain in the upper right hand side. The docs in the ER really never paid attention to me saying that. And my liver enzymes were elevated that night (but are normal now). Ugh, just what I need more problems! :(
