Appendicitis symptoms of gallbladder attack

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis symptoms of gallbladder attack


148354 tn?1211237506 What I learned from all of this, is if you have any kind of acute pain anywhere in the abdomen, and you don't fit any of the classic symptoms of an appendicitis, it still could be an appendicitis. Find a doctor you can trust and takes you serious. So yes, as diagnosed from the post op lab report, there is such as thing as chronic appendicitis.
1168718 tn?1464987135 tomorrow, but I was wondering if this kind of pain is just gallbladder, or is it related to MS. Also, my vision if very blurry, I keep cleaning my glasses and it doesn't help at all. When I close my eyes, and try to open right or left independently, they only open about 1/4 in, if that, and there is so much pain there too. Can anyone help with this.
Avatar m tn My daughter had similar symptoms when she was 17 and was admitted for observation for appendicitis because of so much gas couldn't see the appendix....turned out a few days later she had the HIDA scan and it was her gallbladder --- every other test was normal but her GB was only functioning 4%. Today she's a young adult thriving --- no more of these episodes. Please keep us posted.
178345 tn?1242539846 I don't have any answers for the hyster as I'm looking at that myself. However, can you tell me the symptoms of the gallbladder stuff? I haven't been able to eat without getting totally nausea for well over a month now and people are suggesting gallbladder. Plus I also have the adenomyosis, fibroids, and cysts and all the fun symptoms that go with that.
Avatar f tn Current literature supports the notion that the reproduction of symptoms with the CCK is the best predictor of symptom resolution following removal of the gallbladder. Most surgeons, however, would be reluctant to operate on these folks without an upper endoscopy first to rule out other UGI sources. It is unfortunate that most GI docs refuse to see patients in this age range.
Avatar n tn However, I went to a surgeon who said there is a 90% chance of curing the problem by removing the gallbladder. Although I'm not sure if it is relevant, I had an appendectomy in 7 months ago (acute appendicitis but no rupture) and got an infection and superficial blood clot at the IV site. I've considered another GI opinion but can't get an appt for over a month and the surgery is scheduled for next week. Based on this information, would you recommend gallbladder removal?
Avatar f tn The stones that are seen are merely the visual evidence of a bad gallbladder. If you have typical gallbladder symptoms, all you need is some evident of an abnormal gallbladder to be comfortable recommending cholecystectomy. I'm not sure how some (usually primary care) physicians get into the mindset of "little stones - little pain.
Avatar m tn ), then there's really a question, if it is gallbladder. Your symptoms may all arise from biliary duct - in this case removing of the gallbladder wouldn't help. I would recommend you have MRCP before surgery. After gallbladder removal, constant diarrhea may be a problem, since bile is flowing into intestine all the time, and because it can't be all re-absorbed in the small intestine, it reaches the colon where it triggers diarrhea.
Avatar n tn Is this two separate things going on at once, or can there by a touch of bleeding with a gall bladder attack, or ?? As background, I also have a serious chronic Lyme Disease situation (many years) with antibiotic use off and on for several, and take probiotic pearls. Also have the Lyme co-infection of Babesia in the gut. Also multiple food hypersensitivities. I am a 57 year old woman. Ah, life used to be so simple!
Avatar m tn I was just released from hospital where they ran some new tests with this last attack. I had an ejection fraction test where my gallbladder only emptied about 2% and an upper GI endoscopy which showed a hiatal hernia and a wierd mucosal abnormality mid esophagus to distal as well as in my stomach antrum to body.
Avatar n tn I have had UTI problems in the past and thought that was it but the culture was negative and the antibiotics the doctor gave me are not helping the symptoms at all. She also did a pelvic exam at the time of the culture and I had a lot of discomfort when putting pressure on the bladder. I feel as though sometimes the pain is in the urethra, sometimes the bladder and sometimes the vagina. I can't understand it.
Avatar m tn The pain on the right side of my abdomen has increased since the removal of my gallbladder. My question is, at what point do I see a dr about getting my appendix out? I feel awful and have been in increasingly worse pain in that area. As I am not sure if I have actually had an acute attack I really don't know what to do. Just know something is wrong and I feel awful and have been nauseas several times in the last couple weeks.
Avatar n tn The early onset/mild pain usually happens before I have my evening meal and in cases where I have not eaten the meal or eaten very lightly it has generally reduced the level of pain of the attack, but the attack has still happened. The time I had the first attack in my late 20s it was very much an isolated incident, but in my mid to late 30s I had an increase in frequency of attacks so went to the doctors about it.
Avatar n tn When I read the complaints experienced by VEGASVIC, they mirrored my symptoms! I'm searching for the cause of my "mystery" pain. I'm very fit. I workout 3 times a week, no less than 2 hours of high impact aerobics, body strengthening and ab work. I don't have pain then, but let me have a bite to eat and brace yourself! Sharp pain in the lower right abdomen, gas, bloating, throbbing ... Sometimes the pain subsides in an hour or so. I keep a heating pad at my bedside.
Avatar f tn We bought something at an herb store called Parastroy by It comes in a box with two bottles, Para-rid and Para-sweep with 90 pills in each. My 16 year old is using it. She started it on Friday and so far she feels like it is working. I open two pills of each bottle and put it into a small glass of eggnog to make it taste and absorb better. She does it twice a day. My oldest daughter and I are taking something called Oil of Wild Oregano(oreganol P73). website is www.
511091 tn?1211153260 This used to happen about every 5-6 weeks (although not always that far apart—sometimes it happened within a week of a previous attack). The pain area is naval area and a 3” circle around it. I have no idea if there is any relation between the two or if you only experience problems on a regular basis (e.g. every 4 weeks); in which case it would suggest it is your own body that is causing the problems.
734076 tn?1231787602 I had an appendectomy in 2005 and so I know it is not appendicitis. It even made me wonder if they had left some kind of tool in there that might be causing this, lol. It is a dull pain, almost burning-like but not severe. Just enough to call my attention to it. I really hope it does not get worse. I have been taking Zantac for about 8 years due to indigestion problems and so that may be getting worse now and causing this, I don't know.
Avatar f tn Last year I had a Muscionous Cystadenoma removed in my appendix (pathology revealed the nature of the blockage, had been assumed to be a standard appendicitis). Shortly after surgery I began having upper quandrant pain (sharp stabbing) in gallbladder area. US and Hidascan showed no blockage, good function. Blood work showed no elevated liver function or amylase/lipase. Pain continued intermittent and did not seem linked to food. Usually hit mid week.
Avatar n tn What are symptoms of gallstones? I have taken two test, an ultrasound that says I have gallstones and a CT scan that says I don't. Which one is more reliable?
1761908 tn?1313201635 I agree that it sounds like gallbladder symptoms! Classic signs are upper right abdominal pain that radiates through to the back under the shoulder blades and nausea! I would be heading to the emergency department during an attack and they will most likely order and conduct an ultrasound to check for gallstones........the usual treatment for these is to remove the gallbladder.
Avatar n tn Biliary colic or Gallstones Cholecystitis or inflammation of the gallbladder Duodenal ulcers Kidney Stones / ureteric stones Appendicitis Ovarian cyst Ectopic pregnancy Constipation Pulled muscle Trapped wind Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and right lower lobe pneumonia, strangulated or obstructed hernia, polycystic ovaries, food poisoning, are other common causes of pain in the right side of the abdomen.

Avatar n tn He also said, if you get one stone, you will get more so I should consider removing Gallbladder. All of this scares the heck out of me. I am a 33 yr old female, 5'8" & 135 lbs, in good shape & active. My diet is good, I did indulge once in a while but have always ate well. I wonder if the sausage I ate the night before triggered all this. I was released on Friday but still have this bloated feeling in my upper abdomen when I eat but am feeling better other than that.
Avatar n tn You really need to get to the hospital if the pain is too bad to stand. It could be a nasty gallbladder attack, appendicitis, or a bunch of other potentially serious things. If you have a fever and/or lack of an appetite go to the ER ASAP.
Avatar n tn stomach hurting, pain in side, nauseated, swollen glands can be symptoms of many being appendicitis and the other, a gallbladder attack. if she truly is sick...get her seen about and stop posting about it.
Avatar f tn This back shoulder blade chest pain is one of the most common yet unknown symptoms of a gallbladder disorder. This can come and go or be constant. It may be sharp, excruciating or dull. It may also occur especially at night. An gallbladder attack will typically last for one to four hours. It seems from my research that chest pain is a common symptom. I would advise you have it checked out with your Dr though to be absolutely sure as chest pain can often be a signal of heart problems too.
Avatar n tn no they didn't at least I don't think they did and since I had my first attack I have really cut back on fatty foods I did eat minimal fatty foods and had more attacks I just don't know what to think because my primary care doc is insisting that it isn't the sludge in my gall bladder but I know of 4 people that got their gallbladder removed because of sludge and they are fine now.
Avatar f tn I have the same exact symptoms. My gallbladder and appendix was removed 19 years ago. However, I've always had the slight discomfort on my right side and I cannot eat heavy. I was also diagnosed with IBS. The Levisin helped but my Pharmacist just notified me that the Manufacturer is no longer making Levisin and I should call my doctor to ask for a similar drug.
