Last nite the pain on my right side...kinda like under my rib cage..was horrendous...it came in waves....like shooting..pulsating pain..it was making me feel sick to my stomach.. now it feels like pressure..like something is enlarged..pushin on the bottom of my rib cage.

The intense pain is gone..but..I have the urge to keep rubbing my side & just feel like a wet noodle !

You poor thing! I never have had a problem with mine, but my mom did and I could tell she was in agony. Please, if it gets worse again, don't wait - go to the ER, that's what they're there for!

For now just keep eating a totally non fat diet. (too much gravy on your turkey, or birthday cake frosting). I have had problems with my gall bladder for years. Luckily it' 's not stones but "sludge". When I eat really fatty things or "gassy" things it can set off and it is painful and it' it makes you very nauseous. They can find it with a simple ultrasound of the area. One thing that helps to soothe an inflammed gall bladder is "artichoke juice" or tablets. That really works. You must keep drinking though Bunny and more than the norm as if it's a stone it needs to pass. If you still have pains later in the day you should stop by the ER and find out what it is,,,, like your dh if it's a blockage then it needs immediate attention. (())

Gall bladder attacks were some of the worst pains...like labor pains...that I have ever experienced!! It was hard breathing through them and they left me weak for days and nauseous. They wouldn't stop and I told the doctor to set me up and get that thing out of me fast!! They did!!
