Okay so a bit of an update.
So my diet has been pretty normal, not overly healthy but I don't eat deep-fried foods or foods that look way too greasy. After Christmas and during the new year, it started to subside, the pain(or shall I say small ache) is barely noticeable and on days I don't even notice. It's slowly reducing to a very minor/small ache, much like mid-late November to early December, before the doctor prescribed Dicetel. After I started taking Dicetel in mid December, the pain got noticeably worse and I stopped taking it after a week and it took about
half a month before the pain subsided.
Now the ache is pretty small and dull. Doesn't happen all too much(just like in November). It's not overly painful(like when I was on Dicetel). So I booked a appointment with my family doctor today and went to see him, since the ache/dull ache is still there on my lower right side.
I've been slightly nauseated recently(bad sleep and probably because the weather has been pretty cold -5'C and snowing). The ache is on my lower right, near the waist/hip bone, it happens very randomly and lasts for maybe 1 - 2seconds at most and then its gone. Than happens again maybe a few minutes after. It's not severe or painful enough for me to stop what I'm doing or stop any activities, just a "Hey, I'm there here!" ache, to remind you that its still there lol...Sometimes the ache happens on my lower LEFT side and I've have the ache a few times on my upper right side, near the middle of the rib-cage(this happened maybe once or twice)
I've watched my diet and ate less, that might be why I've lost 5 LBS over the course of a month. I've also started burping frequently and they're pretty loud burps.
However, after telling the doctor all this. He puts me on a table/bed and starts pressing around the areas and everything seems normal. My blood work came back and everything looks good, my White Blood Cells actually dropped a little, but still normal, which he told me if I was battling an infection than my WBC would be up instead of down. I've suggested it might be my Gall-Bladder but he said people in my age bracket(I'm 23) and judging from my family history. It doesn't seem like I have Gall-stones and/or Gall Bladder disease, so he said an ultrasound isn't necessary at this point. And that the spots where I have the ache, wouldn't be my gall-bladder. He said you'd feel it in your back and high up. He also said, gall-bladder attacks/pain are usually more severe?
His solution? Eat healthy, be healthy(active, exercise) and just stop worrying because the mind can play tricks on you. He said, the body can find ways to solve itself and work itself out. Also that the chances of this being anything life-threatening or very dangerous is pretty low.
He prescribed me Zanctac for my nauseated feeling since I might have too much stomach acid.
What I'm afraid of is finding things too late. It's better to treat something that just started than to treat something after it develops :( He doesn't want to issue any scans because of the radiation, he said those scans aren't that great for the body and not ultra sound because he can't see anything leading to the Gall-bladder.
So there's my update :)
Edit: I just ate a pretty big meal and I feel some discomfort/aches on my lower left and right sides :/ Nothing deep fried, overly greasy/oily and no carbonated beverages.
