glad i'm not the only one lol :)
odd you mentioned about the gallbladder attacks keri as i suspect i may have those probs although peeps always seem to have double over can't do anything pain which i don't get mine is more chronic as opposed to acute
i'm thankful i haven't had a bad attack for a while now although i do sometimes doubt myself and think i have imagined it all when i don't get the symptoms
thank you so much for you help i will try to go on a low fat diet its not easy these days lol but it does help i can't eat processed foods cos of MSG but i am a cheese addict funnily enough though fat doesn't tend to cause problems on its own its certain kinds of foods which trigger it the above attack happened when i was on an anti candida and wheat/gluten free diet. I do drink coffee i find it hard to function without it but this attack also happened when i was on a caffeine free diet only drinking herbal teas. I'm scared to eat certain stuff incase it triggers a bad attack again.
I will have to see about the hida scan the dr may be reluctant to refer me as i have been quite well for a while, maybe i have to be rushed to hospital in an ambulance before they do anything
My mum had her GB removed 4 years ago and she was like me fat wasn't an issue it was certain foods like pastry and bananas which killed her.
i don't know whether or not to push for the hida scan or just wait until it gets so bad i'm rushed to hospital in an ambulance lol
i haven't had an attack for months until last night i had fried egg chips (french fries) and baked beans haven't had that combo for ages well it started - bloated while i was still eating gurgling and gas within minutes of finishing eating radiating pain all over upper half of my abdomen but no specific area pain in the right side of my back hiccups and burps which i don't get with my IBS as i have IBS attacks regularly but don't get the hiccups and burps well lets just say i am not eating that again :) teaches me for getting lazy on a friday night. Hopefully i escaped the worst of it not feeling too bad today no bloating or gas just discomfort under the right side of my ribs today :) which i can live with.
thanks keri for sharing your experiences with me and the advice you have given me and thanks to the others for helping with this issue :) i just need to now decide what steps i need to take. I'm not a pushy person but maybe i'm gonna need to get assertive. I'm just too tired to care sometimes :(
