Honestly, after seeing how many sections there are on this forum, I expected one for the Gallbladder.
Anyway, here's my issue...
Monday morning (last week) I woke up to get ready for school. I rolled out of bed, and got up the brush my hair, noticing my right shoulder hurt quite a bit. After 10 minutes or so of moving around, getting ready for school, the pain in my shoulder got very severe, and I also had severe pain in my abdomen, right under the bottom of the right side of my ribcage.
I was in so much pain, I called my mom crying to have her take me to the ER.
At the ER all they did was an ultrasound of basically my whole abdomen. Nothing showed, so I left with a shot of Morphine and they told me to check in with my Doctor.
SO on Tuesday I saw my Doctor, and he gave me a prescription for stomach ulcers (prilosec and something else), But I haven't managed to pick them up, due to lack of money. He also told me to keep an eye out for fatty foods and see if they hurt. Sure enough, fatty foods have been causing me horrible pain in my abdomen and sometimes my shoulder.
However, as of Wednesday or Thursday, my stomach began to feel REALLY acidic. It's almost been like really bad heartburn. I have been drinking small amounts of warm water and baking soda for that (as per mother's instructions). I found the pattern that my abdomen hurts when I eat, but if I haven't ate anything in awhile, I begin to feel really acidic.
From experimentation, I have found I cannot eat much more that 2-3 grams of fat in any given serving before I'm in really bad pain. (Living on a low fat diet is depressing me D: )
I'm going into the DOctor again hopefully tomorow to have a Functioning Test for my Gall Bladder.
I'm not even 100% positive it's my gallbladder, but I talked to my grandma, and she had he exact same thing happen to her. They did the functioning test three times before they took it out because it would function, then it wouldn't, then it would again.
I'm just in a lot of pain and hope they get this fixed soon.
Any confirmations on it being my gallbladder, or possibly something else? I'm just at a loss, and my doctor just keeps putting tests and stuff off.
Help! I'm tired of living off of fruits, veggies, and low fat soup!
