my wife (39y/o female) began having gi problems aout 4 mos. ago. saw a specialist who performed colonoscopy and endoscopy and found some irratation and a few benign polyps. my wife was put on alot of antacid meds and the abdominal pain got better. she continued to have symptoms and was referred back to her primary who ordered a hidascan on her gallbladder(ultrasound was negative) the hidascan showed an ejection fraction of 16% -not good. her gallbladder is coming out in a couple weeks....however, since then she has become extremely and constantly dizzy with lethargy and headache. she is pale. the Dr. and surgeon don't seem to feel the dizziness is related to the gallbladder. she's had bloodwork which was mostly unremarkable, although one ER visit found low potassium. can these symptoms be related to the gallbladder? do we need to see a neurologist in the mean time? we had other tests and meds but nothing is working. she can only sit in the chair, where before she was extremely active. please help, your time is appreciated.

  • ....however, since then she has become extremely and constantly dizzy with lethargy and headache. she is pale. There is sooo many different things which can cause those symptoms. Does anything seem to make her dizziness or symptoms worst or better??? Heat? Laying down? Exercise? showering? After eatting?
