    I need help! Any advice opinions anything please!

    I'm 26 years old my son is 4 months. Since November I have had seems like my bones are cracking it is very loud and happens all the time. My muscles are very weak and my back gets sore from just relaxing on the couch. I feel very fatigued, started having burning sensation in my upper abdomen then yellow stools for about 4 weeks. Now I just get upset stomach and pains with change in stools. One day green then yellowish brown and just not normal. I've also noticed skin changes, light brown patches, more beauty spots, and I found red dot size of needle***** on my arm and two very tiny ones on my other arm. Seems like I'm bruising easily. I've had blood test done and my bilirubin was creeping up. Any ideas on what the cause could be? I do not believe this is all in my head either. I also have a vitimin d deficiency and the level was 28. Thank you I really need your opinions.

    Elevated billirubin would be indicative of gallbladder or liver issues. Have you had an ultrasound? If it's negative, a HIDA scan would be next for gb function. You're bowek symptoms along with your recent pregnancy are also indicative of gb issues.

    Re: I need help! Any advice opinions anything please!

    Thank you for your reply! I really appreciate it I will be getting an ultrasound of my gallbladder tomorrow, but I really want to check other things as well but my doctor just wants to do the gallbladder which frustrates me.

    Yesterday my stomach pains and gurgling have just stopped. I am so use to hearing it and feeling uncomfortable, but now I have no hunger pains either and have no apetite. I also have not had a bowel movement yesterday so I'm thinking I'm constipated but yet have no constipation pains... Should I go to see the doctor again or is this my body getting better? I really don't know what is going on with my body :/ I wish it would go back to normal again...

    I think you should wait till the u/s results come back. You may be getting better or it may just be leveling out.

    You might also find a gastroenterologist that is a specialist of the pancreas. I have chronic pancreatitis and your symptoms are familiar.

    Do not stop going to doctor. As I stated find an expert on the pancreas and bile ducts.
    Could be gall bladder, but unless full of stones, do not let them remove. Get the specialist.

    Hi sorry you're feeling so bad just now.
    I suffered from back pain which was caused by gallstones. Hope specialist find solution.

    They said that there was a shadow in my gallbladder... Not sure what that means at all? I see my doctor on Wednesday but since then I have more symptoms that are very very scary! Before my stomach issues I had a slight shortness of breath, and throat issues which they did a scope and was fine. Also had bone joint cracking all over my body. Now I have muscle spasms that started in my right leg which that leg feels like a growing pain! And my foot is affected as well. I also get shaky in my hands at times. The past few nights I've been waking up with my mouth open and tongue between my teeth! And my tongue feels very big and swollen. I am scared because I'm having difficulty breathing because my throat feels tight around my neck. I don't want to say that scary neuro disease... I'm also breastfeeding my 5 month old and taking care of two little boys. I'm just so freaked out and scared. I've also started getting very fatigued and my eyelids get really heavy as well. I'm praying... If anyone could help with anything. Thank you so much!
