Hi Sophie, thank you for the replies! I hope youre feeling better today?! For some reason , I felt good today---the first day in a long time where I felt close to normal. I *think* the reason might be that today was a good *bathroom day* if you know what I mean (sorry not sure how to word those kind of things, lol!) Now if it could only stay that way, hehe.
I havent had the HIDA scan you asked about, but my Doc did mention it may be something I will have to do if they are still leaning towards gallstones as the "growth" in my abdomen. Its strange that you got sick from the dye when you had yours, yet the tests came back normal, unless the dye makes you ill in general? If it affected your GB and that is why you became so sick, then wouldnt that point to the GB again? With the tests claiming normal GB for you though---is that the reason your doctor is suspecting an Ulcer? Or were there some other things that made him/her think it might be a stomache Ulcer (or different kind of ulcer)?
When you had the blockage/constipation did you have alot of fatigue---like an abnormal/not just from not eating---type of fatigue? You mentioned that you felt weak from not eating, but when you had the blockage did you ever get so tired that you felt like you absolutely had to lay down or take a nap?
I remember you saying that you experienced restlesness after you have the Heart symptoms--is it ever seperate from that, like maybe *before* the heart symptoms? Or, have you ever had sudden fatigue on those days? I am asking because for me, the days when I have the hardcore fatigue are usually on the same days when I have that problem with my heart & the leg symptoms that we both have. The weird thing is, I dont know if the heart & leg problems cause the fatigue, vice-versa, or if theyre all just symptoms from one main problem! Another reason I ask, is that my doctor mentioned that fatigue is also a symptom of blockage/chronic constipation.
Sorry if I asked you too many questions, Im just trying to arrange the pieces of the puzzle I guess. As I said before I do think they are all linked somehow, Im just not sure how. Guess thats also why I wondered about your doctor considering Ulcers....but I do feel that every new thing learned is one step closer to figuring it all out!
Anyways, thanks again for comparing notes with me Sophie, hehe! Talk to you soon, have a good day!
