Hi folks, just wondering if anyone can give me some advice.
It all started Tuesday when I just felt "off" I couldn't put my finger on it but I know I didn't feel good. Then I was cold and couldn't warm up, started to feel sick and then this pain began in my chest, which settled under my ribs (my right side) but occasionally radiated up to armpit and shoulder.
I had no temp or anything else, but was tired and had lost my appetite. I thought I might have a chest infection as it felt like some one had inflated a balloon under my lung.
I saw a nurse on Wednesday who told me she thought something was wrong with my gallbladder. She made me do some blood tests and told me to follow up with the dr. I have an appointment for Tuesday and my bloods came back ok.
I don't feel the pain was that bad (what I've read gallstones is a very bad pain) but then I didn't think my appendix was the worst pain of my life either.
They put me on buscopan which seems to be helping, but still struggling to eat and it is slowly my bowels down dramatically! The radiating pain is pretty much gone but there is still a dull ache/pressure feeling under my ribs, which every so often gets worse and then settle back down.
Does anyone have any advice or tips? This is all rather new and sudden to me!? One thing I was curious about is how quickly can a gallstone form?
Thanks in advance! 🙂
