health issue

I'm going to make it short but recently I have not been feeling good at all. Everyday is basically strugle just trying to function. Ive been to the doctors several times and all my bloodwork has came back good. I've been tested for mono and my thyroid levels and other things. I've been extremely tired and i have a hard time focusing on things. Some days all I want to to is lay around. I'm also having stomach problems like a lot of burning sensation in my stomach,constipation and sometimes cramping and nausea. Im on my 4th acid reflux medicine and it is barely helping. I also have bad breath that smells like amonia. I had an upper GI done and all they found was acid reflux and a small hiental hernia. I also had my gallbladder checked out and all they found was sludge. Now I am on a gluten free diet just trying something different hoping for a solution. Any help would be greately appreciated!

Re: health issue

Did you have a hida scan to check gallbladder function ? I have symptoms like you and all test were okay and my hida scan ejection rate was marked normal , my ejection rate was 92% one doctor says it is okay another doctor says it is too high and is called a hyper gallbladder that pushes out too much bile. The reason i am telling you this is because when i would brush my teeth i would always brush my touge and i would gag and taste a funny taste when i would gag , i am thinking maybe bile taste cause was told by a nurse practioner that an overactive gallbladder could even throw bile into my stomach. I am tired all the time have stomach issues , somedays i feel like i am toxic.

Re: health issue

You are welcome. The hida scan will tell you the function of your gallbladder anything under 35% is underactive and over 75% is hyperactive and they both have the same symptoms. Hope you get answers and feel better soon.
