Hi, I've been reading your post on Gall Bladder, and the profile fits me. I'm 64, I had a spell last nite, cleaning up the kitchen,  ate 1/2 of small choc. cake,  later on, get the sharp pains, lower belly, buzzy head, chills.  Pretty soon feeling nauseous, then I vomited while having the diarreah.  I have passed out twice on occasion during these spells, not recently tho.   Later in the night, the sharp lower belly pains continued, and I passed a little blood, but that's over now.   I've had these spells over several years, have had ultrasound for gb, but negative.  Recently had endoscopy, excess acid, etc.  Haven't had colonoscopy for a while.   In your opinion, does this sound like GB?   Really appreciate any info!  Oh, I also get pain under right ribcage also, and upper back.  thanks, Susan.

Passing blood is not related to the gall bladder, but if it was bright red, that may just be hemmroids. I have internal ones and a lot of pooping can certainly aggrevate them.

I would have a doctor check out the bleeding thing, though, unless you know for certain you have hemmroids and have had them bleed just like that before. Vomiting is quite common with a bad gall bladder, but when paired with bleeding, it might be a sign of something more serious, like an IBD.

If your doctor says the blood is just from hemmroids, then ask him to give you a hida scan to check the function of your gall bladder. While most gall bladder pain is in the upper-half of the body, it can certainly migrate. I wasn't taken seriously when I said "It's my gall bladder!" because I hurt along my diaphram, not under my rib cage or just on my right side. So I know all about how the pain from it can radiate elsewhere!
