Hello my name is Judi and I am 54 years old. For the last 18 years I have been in and out of the ER and hospital to mant times to count. I get the "attacks" , almost always at night between 10pm-5am, that give me severe abdominal pains along with very serious cold sweats and somtimes urinating and vomiting. I have been to my local hospital and also two very large hospitals with no answers. The most they do for me now is pain managment which is not working.
Please anyone who can help me I would greatly appreciate it! I know there are other people in this world with my illness and I hope you are reading this right now!!!
This sounds like it could be a gallbladder attack. Have they checked for
stones, however my attacks started as an "inactive" gallbladder and I later
developed stones. My attacks would always be about that time of night.
I would have to go to ER. They would give me a demerol shot or pill (100 mg). That would stop the pain in just a few minutes. The next day I would
feel ok but would be sore inside. A spastic colon can also hurt like that.
I would highly recommend you see a doctor when you are ok, during the day perhaps. Do you get sharp/dull/achy pains on you back or on your sides? If this is accompanied with the vomiting and etc, then It indeed sounds like Gallbladder Stones. Please consult your doctor, if this is what it is, you need to get it removed ASAP. It's an easy surgery and you will be totally relieved from this. My mom had this problem. Take care and hang in there
