Okay - I really hate it when you go to the doctor and you know something isn't right - but they can't tell you what the problem is.Over the past couple months I have been having pains in my right side just under my rib cage. It would be kind of a sharp stabby pain. Sometimes it would take my breath away. Sunday it was constant and Sunday night it didn't let up and then the heartburn started in. I am going on day 4 of heartburn. Everything I eat makes it worse. At the E.R. on Monday they initially thought gall stones. Well they did an ultrasound of my gall bladder, kidneys, liver, pancreas and appendix and didn't see anything. So they sent me home.
The side isn't hurting quite so bad but the heartburn I could live without. Went back to the dr. today. He is suspecting my gallbladder of not working properly. He gave me some medicine to help with the heartburn. I go in tomorrow to the hospital for Hydroscan of my gall bladder. I guess they will inject dye into my gall bladder - then I have to lay under this camera for about 1 1/2 hours while it takes pictures.
I will update more tomorrow. Maybe Russell can go with me? I hope. :)
