i am female, and overweight by about 90 pounds. I wasn't this way last year. I gained a lot of weight with a thryoid problem and then was put into a stressful job where I used food for comfort.
Last Summer I did my first Liver Flushes .... I did one right before I started a 25 day master cleanse, and then attempted to do them once a month as described as the best protocol. I got out one huge stone (sized like a whole walnut) and lots of pea size ones and by the 3rd flush it was mostly chaff with one or 2 tiny peas. The 4th flush I attemped I got sick to my stomach while in the middle of downing the oil/juice mix.
starting last fall (approx Nov) I started getting these pains in my right hand side, in the back, low under the shoulder blade right in the gallbladder area. It would start out like a muscle cramping up and then would go into that really sharp pain like when you get a muscle spasm in your calf. I tried everything I could think of. I tried another flush, which I couldnt even get down about 1/3 of the oil/juice before it came back (almost projectile style).
I tried malic acid, lethcin, Liver Cleansing herbs, gold coin grass... I still have the pain. The severity comes and goes in waves. In May of this year I went to a naturopath for the first time. Described what was going on... he sent me for a ultrasound to see if I had gallstones. The ulra sound report says that I dont have any at all.
If I don't have any, why do I keep getting these attacks? The last one I had was about 3 weeks ago and it was to the point the pain was so severe I was doubled over, was dizzy with a terrible headache, nausea, wicked heartburn and the cold sweats. I went to bed about 10 pm. I woke up at 3 up to rush to the bathroom where I spent about 30 minutes passing green bile...nothing else at all.
I felt better the next day and the pain seemed to lessen dramatically. That is until this past Thursday when it started again.... I was to the point where I am white knuckling it on the steering wheel while I am driving. The only thing that seemed to make it go away is eating a large quantity of good quality chocolate and some butter cookies.
What is happening to me and how do I make this stop??????
Liver Flushes are out of the question as my body will not keep even a tablespoon of oil down.
