Then the gas came plus indigestion and finally nausea. I notice after I go to the bathroom and empty out my bowels my stomach goes into shock like it shaky. Throughout the day I was belching and then the indigestion came back. Does anyone go through that?

    I started to cry this morning not because of pain but I always feel my life is over because I know my day is shot when I have a bad day. I am just so fustrated because why doesn't a gas medicine work for gas. Is this some weird type of gas that nothing works. I am just so sick of this whole deal!:

    Back to soup and crackers - popsicles too.
    I had a bad day too. I know better than to eat anything first thing in the morning. Ended up having chest pain for much of the day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better for both of us. I was crying to one of my friends telling her I can't possibly live the rest of my life like this. I'm trying to work on having a positive attitude but it's difficult. You're life is not over. Eventually you'll find the right doctor who will be able to help you.

    Isn't this pitiful that we wake up wondering if we are going to have a good day or not? I have been there and done with the positive attitude. Last night I was having pain on the side of my chest left hand side - thinking "is this my heart" but actually it was gas traveling through my body. Such a powerful gas that it travels all over the place and causes pain. I belched and then the pain was gone. THIS IS JUST SO WEIRD!!!!

    Yes, it is pitiful. As soon as I open my eyes in the morning it's the first thing that I start thinking about. When I get up and start moving around I can already tell how my day is going to go. I've had the gas on my left side, under my ribs, it was so painful, couldn't even take a deep breath. Started to wonder if it was my heart and I'm 26 years old. I've also had pain in my back, neck, and even shoulders. Like I said before, if it is acid reflux - Prilosec, Nexium, and Prevacid aren't working for me! At least I'm off work today so maybe today will be better. Hope it will be for you too, Gigi,

    That is so funny about getting up in the morning and opening your eyes and the first thing that you start thinking about. You just want drag through the day. I do the same exact thing. It is like a handicap and you have so many restrictions. I have not taken a vacation yet with this condition and scared to. Yesterday and today I have eaten everything under 5 grams of fat per meal. I had oatmeal for breakfast, soup for lunch and soup for dinner. I don't get the soup from cans - I get the organic soup. So far I been feeling normal today but I get one or two phantom pains like gas is floating around.

    There is a stomach flu going around right now. I would never know I had a stomach flu or food poisoning because I feel like crap anyway everyday lol. When I got swine flu a year ago my stomach was so quiet - I was puzzled on that one because I thought my stomach would be the first to go. Another thing I notice and I don't if you get this way but when I get PMS my stomach does flips and acts up. I guess because our hormones cause it.

    Re: Pain after Gallbladder Removal

    today was another bad day. All I ate yesterday was soup. I woke up feeling good but then I got a pain in my hip bone area that radiated to the lower back. I kept belching and gas like crazy - has anyone ever experienced that before. My mother says it is gas and bowels. I got so scared I cried. Now it is just sore pain. If I bend down it is painful and then get back up I feel a little nausea. I cannot wait to see the specialist on May 7th gosh it feels so long away. Everyday seems like pain. What could soup do to you that cause gas because that is what I had all day. I think I will just start a liquid diet. Just wish I could feel good one day. plzzzzzz

    I know when I eat soup i get indigestion unless it is boullion with crackers dont drink soda eat chocolate stay bland white rice boullion jello no coffee or tea eat plain crackers do that for a day or two and see what happens maybe you have gastritis i also know there is a virus going around we took my daughter to er yesterday vomiting, headache for two days chills. Did you try Gasx that works for me if it is in the bowels if its trapped gas in upper body that wont help.

    My daughter had the same virus (vomitting mucus) last week and my son just got over it this past weekend. He had dirrehea for two days and today he seems fine. I am just sick of all this pain. I was reading some old post that were closed on Healthboards - one was "Strange Symptoms/pains, months after gallbladder removal - very interesting reading.
