So, when you sit around feeling like hell, it gives you a lot of time to think. Over think really. I’m calling that damn doctor on Friday. I’m going to tell him that I can’t get through this severe stomach crap…please help it go away. It’s so so bad. I’ll beg him if I have to. Because he’s the one who said, “just because you have TN, doesn’t mean you can’t have anything else. We can’t always just assume that it is all related. It could be gall bladder disease, it could be an ulcer, there are so many other things. So after a couple of weeks, if these pills aren’t working, I’m going to get some tests going.” So, it’s coming up on 3 weeks and I feel just awful!
So here’s what my overactive mind found about gall bladder problems:
Problem Gallbladder Symptoms, may include any or all of the following:
- Pain or tenderness under the rib cage on the right side
- Pain between shoulder blades
- Stools light or chalky colored
- Fatty stools
- Indigestion after eating, especially fatty or greasy foods
- Feeling of fullness or food not digesting
- Nausea, Vomiting, Dizziness
- Bloating, Gas
- Burping or belching
- Constipation or frequent use of laxatives (Constipation and weight gain can also be symptoms of gallbladder problems.)
- Headache over eyes, especially right eye
- Bitter fluid comes up after eating
I have at least 8 of these…whatever that may mean! Maybe nothing. Frankly, I don’t care if it’s some rare, obscure problem, I just want to stop feeling this way. But I do get a weird fluid and taste in my mouth after I eat, so that’s weird!! I’m so sorry it’s all I write about and focus on, but when you feel like this, you can’t think of anything else. Hey Jo and Stinie, want to come over and attack my main floor? It looks like a bomb went off… so frustrating!
Any-who…I’m going to bed now. My tummy is rumbling and gurgling and I taste bike or something; thanks for sharing right??!!
