Well let me give you a little back groung info about this! Thisabout 7 months ago. I woke up one night with a horrible chest pain. I thought at the time i had slept funny and the some thing was out of place.
It happened again the next month but i still thought nothing of it!
Then they started coming more often. Maybe 2-3 times a month. so by this time i was thinking it was gas pains. But i thought it was odd that it was only on my right side, right under my ribs!
So for the past 2 months now i have been getting these pains at least once a week. It always happens while i'm sleeping( usually early morning like 5 or 6) They are so bad that it wakes me up! Not knowing what is wrong with me I try so many diffrent things to get them to go away. walking massage the area where the pain is heating pad.
The pain gets so bad that it makes me throw up. Well finally this morning I woke up at 3:30 and noticed the pain was starting, So i tried going back to sleep. Then i was back up at 4:30 and the pain was getting worse, But i was able to fall back asleep. I woke up again at 5:30 this time the Pain was so bad that i could hardly lay there let alone fall back asleep.
So i got up and tried all the things that i usually do. Of course nothing worked I was rolling around in my bed crying the pain was so bad, My husband was tring to massage my back and chest to try to get it to fell at least a little better. But nothing worked, I ended up in the bathroom doubled over the toilet trowing up the pain was so bad.
After a few hours the pain slowly went away. So after this morning i really can't handle this anymore! I don't think i could stand another morning like this. So anyways I went searching the internet to find out what was wrong with me! Not really knowing what to look for i was searching for anythng about chest pains, the only thing i could find was info about heart attacks. But i know that isn't it! So i called my mom and she really didn't know what it was either so i was pretty much set on the fact that i would have to go to the doctor! (which is something i really didn't want to do!) but after talking to my mom she remembered somthing that the doctor had said when i had to go in this past Feb.
I had to get a bunch of test done and one of the x rays showed that I had gallstones. We really didn't think much of it cause the are fairly common, and I wasn't feeling any pain. Well the doctor told me that if I had any pains after eating a larger meal then I would have to get it removed.
So after all this time I thought that it would only bother me after I ate if I had any problems at all. So after she reminded me of this I decided to do a little searching about gallstones!
And there it was all the Symptoms..the pain is often described as a continuous, dull ache. It usually is moderate but occasionally can be quite severe, is abdominal pain in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen or to the right upper back or shoulder blade Mine just happens to be both. It's usually hard to become comfortable; moving around does not make the pain go away. Last 15 minutes to 24 hours; 1 to 5 hours of continuous pain is common. Begin at night and be severe enough to wake you. It may or may not occur after meals.
Ok so now i'm sure this is what it is! I want to try flushing them out before I go to the doctors. The doctors is the last resort for me! Couse they'll just want to remove the gallblader.
But so far I have seen so many diffrent types of flushes I don't know whick is better for me!
I really need these pains go away! I Honestly can't handle them anymore! Can someone please help me!
Maybe someone that has been in this same situation. I try telling my husband how bad this hurts but I don't think he really understands that this is very important!
So any help or advise would be more then greatly appreciated.
Sorry this is so long!
