I have severe pain nightly in my upper right quadrant.Now I'm thinking it may be my gallbladder. I have multiple sclerosis, that was diagnosed in June. I received an ultrasound but my incompatant specialist can't seem to put her finger on the problem although she suspected the gallbladder. Last night, I realized the pain worsened while I was eating a bowl of corn flakes with honey. The eating the honey worsened the pain. I am completely new to major medical problems so I'm new to everything. What is the frequency of gallbladder problems with MS? i.e. 1 out of 100 people with MS experience gallbladder problems initially.

I dont know the frequency but I had my gallbladder removed before I was diagnosed with MS and it made little difference. I still get stomach problems and pain in the same area.I find ranitadine helps as it is an antacid and I take 100mg of Tramodal for pain but nothing really gets rid of the pain if its neurological i find it just takes the edge off of it. I think the MS hug is very similar to Gall bladder pain (because i have had both) as you can get the muscle pain in the same area. Probably best to get another ultrasound to see if you have gallstones.
