I have been having daily nausea since the end of December. Sometimes accompanied by a gnawing feeling in the chest. Some days I can barely eat because of the nausea. I have had an ultrasound witch showed no stones and a endoscopy which out ruled acid reflux and ulcers. My doctor said that maybe my gallbladder isn't functioning right so he put me on a medicine called actigall which is supposed to help thin the bile. I've been on it for the three weeks he recommended and it's not getting any better. I had a HIDA scan today to check the function I will get the results from that on Monday. I never have any pain. I did start getting a dull ache on my right side. It doesnt last long and has only been happening for about a week. I have eliminated fatty and greasy foods from my diet since January and still the same problem! Does this sound like a gallbladder issue? Or something else. I'm literally getting depressed and just ready for this to be over! I feel like I am having a night mare and can't wake up. I have 3 kids (1,3,4) and a loving husband and I feel like I can't be a good mom or wife right now because I always feel so sick:-(. I am only 23 years old. I never thought I would be going through this. I went through something similar in 2009. I had bad nausea and heartburn lost 25lbs and it was about 9 months before they diagnosed me with gerd. I took prilosec and got better. Now 3years later it's happening again but the nausea is worse this time around. Does anyone have any advice?
I don't have any advice but am suffering with similar problems and just want to let you know I feel the same as you I just want answers and to get well, I had a scan which came back saying no gall stones but my nausea is getting worse too and feel very picky with food. Hang in there if I get any news will get back to you. take care.
I too am having an issue with nausea. Never got physically sick though. Slight pain on occasion, but nothing more. I had a variety of tests including a HIDA scan which shows I have a hyperactive gallbladder. Normal function is 35-75% and I came back at 81% Not much is known as to why and a surefire cure. I have a meeting with a surgeon in a couple weeks as my gasto dr recommends I have it removed. That is all I know for now. Hope it gives you some ideas.
Thanks. I can't wait to get my results tomorrow. I really don't want it to be my gallbladder. Because I don't want to have surgery. But at least if it is my gallbladder my search to find out what's wrong will come to an end. I am ready to get back to a normal life without having to always worry about getting sick!
HIDA scan results back and they said my gallbladder is functioning close to normal. They also said my gallbladder was located lower in the abdomen then it should be? They are scheduling me an appointment with a surgeon.
