After several years of progressively worsening symptoms, I finally had an ultrasound and was diagnosed with gallstones. I am scheduled for surgery in two weeks. My symptoms have been quite consistent with Keri's; however, I developed one symptom recently that my surgeon had not heard of. I will have sudden onset severe nausea followed a few seconds later by a sneeze, then voila the nausea magically disapears. This has happened several times since I found out about
the gallstones. I'm in my 40s and never had this before. The whole nausea/sneeze episode lasts no more than 1 minute start to finish. Funny thing is, when I get the nausea, I don't have any idea that I'm about
to sneeze until I actually do it. The nausea goes away the second I sneeze. The doctor said he thought it was a vagal(?) symptom and suggested I take Prilosec for acid reflux. I've never had reflux, although in the last couple weeks I have developed very uncomfortable fullness, pressure in my lower esophagus that feels like I've eaten too much even if I haven't eaten anything. Prilosec does nothing. Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced the nauseaus sneeze with gallbladder symptoms, or am I nuts?
