Hello-from reading the posts, you all seem so friendly!  I have a problem and maybe someone can give me some reassurance.  I was treated for H Pylori in July.  But now the doctor thinks I had 2 different problems going on. All the symptoms are similar to gallbladder, except for one and this is the really strange one.  I am the most nauseaus  (yes, green with nausea) in the morning.  It wakes me up from a deep sleep between 4 and 7 am.  Hot sweat, nausea and intestinal gas.  After having D and sometimes dry heaves, it lets up some for the rest of the day.  Still feel generally bad, but not as much nausea.  I have had alot of tests, the GB unltrasound was normal-Hida scan is being scheduled.  I was just hoping someone might have had this strange time of day for nausea related to  their gallbladder? I don't know if fatty foods make it worse, have not been able to eat much since the H pylori in July and now this. Had it this morning and all I had yesterday was a few cheese nip crackers. It was slightly better than the mornings after I had eaten soup and toast for supper.   The reason I am so concerned is that if it is not my GB, it is possibly the small intestine-that's the only thing they haven't "scoped".  I am praying someone has had this type of nausea and it will relieve some of the fear for me.  I know I have to wait on the hida scan to know for sure, just really anxious.  Everyone here keeps saying it just can't be my gallbladder.   Thanks so much for any help!

Sounds like me; everyone said it couldn't be my gall bladder because I didn't hurt on my right side. Finally, after 5 years it got bad enough that it hurt on the right side and low and behold, that's what it had been all along.

Idiots.

I was frequently up around 2 or 3 in the morning with gall bladder attacks (mine were diarrhea predominant). Waking up in the middle of the night being sick is actually a known symptom of a bad gall bladder. That yours is closer to morning than midnight, though, doesn't seem weird at all to me. A lot of it may depend on when you go to sleep, how you sleep, what and when you ate the night before, and how bad a lag you have in your gall bladder between when it's supposed to empty (when you eat) and when it does actually empty (which can make you sick if it dumps all at once and on an empty system).

Oh thank you so much for the post! You sure have made me feel better. Gall bladder will for sure be a much easier fix than other things. I am hoping it has just been messed up for so long that it is effecting the stomach and the intestines with the bile.
I am so glad I found this site.

Yeah, excess bile is a pretty nasty thing on the intestinal tract. If it is indeed your GB, and you get it taken out, if you still have bile problems (a lot of people do), then there's a medicine out, Welchol, that will help absorb the excess. Calcium supplements (Caltrate 600 w/ vitamin D) also help keep the guts from getting so irritated by it, and are a bit of a constipator as well.
