i was wondering if someone could tell me if i am having symptoms of a gallbladder condition or if i just hurt my back...????
i first went to my doctor with a fullness of my stomach and some ache in my stomach. i had some nausea off and on and the same with the pain off and on. i had a slight stabbing pain in the upper right quadrant of my abdomin, just under the rib. not excriciating but there. then the upper part of my back started to ache on the right side. it hurts to move my arm some times (just soar feeling) and sit up but feels better when i lay down. but the fullnes or gassiness is so bad that, if i eat, i bloat up so bad that i look about 6 months pregnant. i cannot wear my normal clothes b/c they will fit in the morning but not by the end of the day. no fever that i am aware of just some night sweats recently.
blood work normal, ultra sound reported no abnormalities with kidneys, liver or gallbladder. did find out that i have cysts on both of my ovaries and one ovary has a complex septated cyst the size of my ovaray, something like 2cm X 1cm. ct found no blood clots in the chest and no kidney stones.
the odd thing is the bloating increases with fruits or salad... i do have ibs with constipation, however this is different and i actually am not having a problem with bm.... no diarrhea. so when i wake in the morning no pain in the shoulder and upper back area but then it gets worse when i get to work about 2 hours later. then mysteriously my back pain went away for about a week then out of no where, just sitting at my desk, it came back. I did just finish drinking water with fresh squeezed lemon juice and pulp with some maple syrup. breakfast was a high protein granola bar, south beach diet : ) ... and my new regular decaf coffee with creamer & redi whip... used to have caffeinated coffee....
so can someone figure out what is going on with me ... is this just a back thing or is there something else going on... gallbladder or digestive???
thanks :o
