i get this kind of dull ache on my right side which goes in towards my belly button,its not a really sore pain more of a sensation,its a kind of heavy feeling,it can be a bit sore but not too much,when i get it i lie on that side and it helps.ive saw my doctor about it as ive had it on and off for a few months,he said its anxiety as i suffer badly from that.but ive also noticed some times when i get it i need to go to the toilet for a bowel movemen but not all the time.anyway i saw my doctor yesterday and he asked me if i wanted to get an ultrasound scan of my stomach done to put my mind at rest but now im terrified something really bad is wrong,he said it was up to me if i wanted it done so i said yes.i had blood taken in july and my liver ,kidney etc were all fine.do u think if there was some thing really bad id know,ive read a lot on here about gallbladder problems and wondering if it could be that but im just so scared now.what do i expect with the scan etc.
First off, Tina, you must settle your nerves down. Anxiety is only going to make your discomfort worse. Your symptoms may be gall bladder related and gall bladder disease is not fatal, just painful.
Why not have the tests done and find some answers rather than avoiding testing and worrying about the "what ifs"? You are in control of your choices, but if you don't find out what's wrong, you'll only worry more.
