Hi donut9. I have just come out of hospital after having a blocked common duct from a gallstone. I was having frequent attacks of what I thought were reflux then I would vomit. I was trying to eat an akaline diet take probiotics and sliperly elm and digestive enzymes to help my reflux and none of it was working. Last monday I was in the doctors crying with pain and wondering about my sanity. They did a blood test and my pancreatic function had jumped from 63 to 994 so they sent me straight to hospital and I had to have an ERCP to have the blocking stone removed. The ultrsound scan revealed a gallbladder literally packed with stones so it has to come out too. I have suffered reflux like symptoms for the last 5 years and they have gotten progressively worse to the point where no drugs worked and I was vomiting almost daily. I lost 7 kilos in the space of 4 weeks and am so weak now that just getting up to have a shower wipes me out. Definately get them to check the gallbladder possibility if I had had this done way back at the beginning I wouldn't have had to waste so much time and money investigating reflux.
