Gosh, KitKat, that sounds just like my gall bladder attacks. Before it went bad, I was naturally a bit on the constipated side, so when it wasn't acting up, I might be a little constiated. When it acted up, D all the time. Check out my posting on gall bladder disease and see if you have any of the other symptoms. It took doctors 5 years to discover my gall baldder was bad, despite the fact that I had textbook symptoms (nursing textbook--I looked!) and had a family history of GB disease. Duh, how thick do you have to be? Everyone in my family had me diagnosed long before any doctor did because everyone in my family had had GB disease!
