Not sure I'm in the right spot for this. But, here goes. For almost a year, I have been going to the Dr. I felt ill all the time at first, like I have a virus. From last December until sometime in the summer, I have had 5 earaches. When I exercise I feel like I have the flu. It's a guaranteed 100% that when I exercise I will run a low grade fever. And sometimes, I run a fever just because?My back hurts really bad all the time. Mostly in my right shoulder blad area. My lower back hurts and my hips hurt. I have gas & gas pains. After I eat my stomach makes all kinds of loud strange noises. My husband heard it the other night & asked me if I was hungry. I was thinking NO, we just ate dinner HAHA. Since the summer I have had this feeling under my right rib. It's not painful, but feels like pressure or fullness?Or like something is swollen?And I have noticed when I eat I feel full really quick. I also have had bad pains in my abdomen area. I will be walking around & just have this sharp pain shoot thru my abdominal area. Then I will feel really bloated & have lots of gas & gas pain for the rest of the day & sometimes into the next day. And the pain will even shoot thru my rectum. This doesn't happen very often, maybe once a month. And I am THANKFUL for that!But, when it does happen oh its horrible. And I couldn't even imagine what it is?
I had been going to the Dr. for this since last year. One Dr. said I probably had IBS & to watch what I ate?Wasn't concerned at all. And since that Dr. wouldn't take me serious I went to another, and that one just asked if I was depressed & tried to give my antidepressants. I guess a 32 yr woman walking in with all these complaints, maybe I should be depressed!
Soo, I found a different Dr. once I got some health insurance. This Dr. did all kinds of blood work that came back normal. And did 3 ultrasounds & a HIDA Scan. The 1st ultrasound showed a thickened gallbladder wall & some small polyps. And everything else was normal. The HIDA Scan came back fine & he said my gallbladder was functioning at 91%. When I had the HIDA Scan, they gave me the med that tricked my body into thinking I ate a fatty meal. It gave me such bad pains that I felt like I was going to pass out. Was really bad pain. He said that tells him even tho my gallbladder is functioining its with pain. He told me if it produces pain, it means I have something going on with my gallbladder even tho its not showing up on the test.j
I posted something on a different forum, and find out that there is such thing as an overactive gallbladder. I haven't found much on the topic, was hoping I would run across someone here, that could tell me something about it.
The Dr. is leaving it to me. He said he couldn't be 100% sure that it would solve my problems. But, he thought it would help me, just couldn't guarantee it. I'm having issues on deciding. I'm tired of feeling ill all the time. I worry, what if it doesn't solve the issue, but if I don't have it done, what if could help me?
I'm trying to get as many opinions & as much advice as I can. I'm thinking about calling Monday to see about getting things set up, I feel like its my only option to feeling well again.
Thanks so much!!
