I just put this in the heartburn forum because I didn't realize you all were talking gallbladders here.  So, I'm going to post it here now wink
 
 I am going to my doctor in a week but am trying to gather as much info as possible first.  I have had major attacks on my system over the last 5 years, probably 8-10 times minimum and had my most recent in the last month--I am 8 weeks pregnant.
 
This is what happens:  I wake up in the middle of the night with excruciating chest pain, I find myself in the bathroom feeling like I need to poop and/or vomit.  After that whole scenerio, I start to pass out--hit the floor, but generally am still somewhat concious--the worst of it was that my eyes were open, but everything was black and I was mumbling that I was ok to my husband.
 
So...these attacks last about 15 minutes, but sometimes the chest pain (before the attack)lasts a LOT longer, like a couple hours.  The really funky thing is that once I "pass out" I stand up and I'm completely fine as though nothing has happened. 
 
So...I'm trying to figure out...heartburn?  Gall bladder?  Panic attacks?  I have been treated for panic/anxiety disorders, but I read you don't pass out during a panic attack...maybe a combination of the above?
 
I'm frazzled, does anyone have any ideas?
