just joined ;) I'm in need of some help if anyone has had similar symptoms... I have had right upper quadrant pain rated a 5 on the normal 1 to 10 scale but will get knife jabbing pain rating a 9 on the 1 to 10... Blood work, xray, ct scan and endoscopy and a colonoscopy and everything came back fine... I've asked for a HIDA scan and no one will listen to me that it's related to my gallbladder... If I eat anything spicy greasy my stomach is distended where it looks like I'm 9 months pregnant from the belly button to my chest is hard and distended and a pinch pain on the right upper quadrant I am exhausted tired all the time I just can't shake this feeling I get nauseated lightheaded I'm just at my wits end :( I get heart burn easily where I will belch and acid will come up I do have acid reflux. I am calling my doctor again tomorrow and demanding a HIDA scan to be done tomorrow.. Has anyone had similar symptoms and what was the result.. why is it your gallbladder? And did you have it removed?

I had similar symptoms. I blamed a lot on my reflux and poor digestion. Had the HH/NF Feb 28/14. Shortly after I began central upper abdominal pain. Then went onto full fledge gallbladder attacks. Had my gallbladder out July 24. Felt instantly better the next day. I had a CT scan Mar 4th I believe and it didn't show gallbladder. I didn't have X-rays or scopes done. Bloodwork was ok until first big attack. Pressure your doctor.

I had an ultrasound that showed nothing. Had the HIDA scan and needed immediate gallbladder surgery. Good Luck!
