I've been lurking for 2 years; this is my first post. I haven't had a full-blown gallbladder attack since I began flushing 2 years ago but now I have pain in my liver/gallbladder area. It's sensitive to pressing on it and is especially uncomfortable when driving. My old attacks involved excruciating pain that seemed to take over my whole torso, front and back. This aching under my ribs is something new for me.
I had a sinus/viral infection last week and didn't eat much but suddenly the dry roasted peanuts looked good. Immediately after eating a couple handfulls, my side began hurting and it has been tender for five days. I sleep with a heating pad on it and have flushed (only got chaff).
Any thoughts? I know it sounds ridiculous but can my gallbladder just be SORE from eating peanuts on an empty stomach five day ago? Has anything similar happened to anyone on this board? Thanks for any comments!
