Scared I'm having gallbladder issues
« on: June 13, 2014, 05:55:46 PM »
Hi.  I am new to this forum.  I have been having health anxiety. 

About three weeks ago I was working out at the gym.  We were doing tricep work and I think I pulled a muscle in my mid back.  Shortly after the pain started radiating around into my stomach right around my lower ribs.  The pain finally went away about 2 days later however The last couple of days its been really bad.  Today its so bad now I am not sure if its muscle or gallbladder. I have looked up symptoms of gallbladder attacks, I have no nausea, or vomiting.  I also have no pain around my shoulders or a fever.  I don't know what is happening, the more I think about it the more it hurts, feel  like I am going crazy.

The pain eases when I take ibuprofen or Tylenol.   

Please help.

IF it was gallbladder, you'd know about it. Pain is just one of many symptoms of it, and you don't have them. You also know that you were working out, and that you had pain just after, making it almost certain that it's muscular. It probably started getting better, then got irritated again. anxiety can also cause tense muscles, which will make the pain worse

When thinking about something makes it seem worse, that's very much a sign that anxiety is the cause. Naturally, the more you focus on it, the more your anxiety rises and the worse the symptoms become :)
