stomach cramps immediately after eating.
Hopefully someone will be able to shed some light on this for me. For the past few weeks I have been waking up in the morning with the worst stomach cramps. At first I thought they were hunger pains even though I wasn't really that hungry, they just felt like really bad hunger pains. 2 days ago the pain was pretty bad but I noticed that I would get cramps on my right side as soon as I would take a few bites of food. I didn`t even have time to finish my Nutrigrain bar and the cramps began. The pain wasn`t getting much better so I went to the ER and they took blood tests and told me that I had gallstones. They scheduled me for an ultrasound to see where and how big the stone was. After the ultrasound they said that they did not see any stones and they are sending me for another test. A HIDA test, but this will probably only be in a few weeks.
When I got home from the ER I thought that I had started my period as I was bleeding and I thought that maybe this pain had to do with my period even though I have never had that kind of cramping before. But to my surprise I was only spotting as I only bled a little bit and stopped for the evening. I noticed today that I was spotting again. I have no idea if this is related to my cramps but I am thinking that it must be as I never spot.
I know that this is a long post but I thought that I should give all the info and hopefully someone will have an idea as to what can be causing all this. I am 31 years old and have never had any gallbladder issues before. I do have IBS but have never had pain in the right upper side and my bowels have been normal lately.
