Gallstones anyone?
« on: July 07, 2014, 12:33:48 AM »
After eating today, I experienced mild pain in my upper right abdomen right underneath my rib.  It radiated back somewhat to my back, but it's very mild pain mostly discomfort.

Does this sound like a gallstone to you guys?

Anyone else experience this?

It could be a stone which passed - if it had lodged, you'd be in the hospital - they hurt! -, but it could also be a muscle strain, gas, or even anxiety.

I am not a doc, and my words aren't medical advice. I've done about five straight weeks of honcode/pro level reading on the subject, before & after having had my gallbladder removed. Pulled a total panic jag over it.

Do you fit at least 3 of the 5 f's: 40, female, fair, fat, and fertile? Does anyone in your immediate family have gallstones? Did the pain strike suddenly, after a meal? Any other symptoms? Ultrasound is not foolproof, but it's the gold standard for diagnosis. Call your doctor and share your concerns asap. Don't suffer!
