I just wanted to give an update and see if anyone has any ideas on what's going on with me. I've done 3 cleanses so far in 3 weeks. My last was 1 1/2 weeks ago. I have had a pretty much contstant pain in my gall bladder, shoulder an neck. I got sick of the pain and thought maybe accupuncture might help. A week ago, I went and got accupuncter. The accupuncturist said that he could help me pass the stone and put the needles in my gall bladder. It didn't help any pain, but I did feel activity in my gall bladder. I also started on Gold Coin Grass 1 1/2 weeks ago.
On Saturday and Sunday night, I had 2 huge attacks. My attacks in the past have been very far apart and not nearly as strong. I couldn't associate any food I had eaten to bring on the attacks, so I was surprised I had them. The first night I tried Epsom Salts . Nothing. So I took some advil and pepto, still nothing. The second night I took Epsom Salt and still nothing. Then I took Gaviscon, an antacid, at which, my severe pain subdued to a mild pain. I don't know whether Gaviscon was the help or whether it was a coincidence.
The next morning and from then on, my bowel movements have been BLACK! Ususally after Epsom Salt I have diarreah, but now I have very soft and thick, black BM's. It's so thick it sticks to the toilet and I have to scrub it out. Is this bile? Is it perhaps so dark, because it's bile that's been in my gallbladder for a long time?
I'm wondering if these attacks were more my body trying to push out some stones. I still have pain in my neck and shoulder, but I have more energy than I have had in a long time. So, I figure something good is happening. I'm a bit confused as to what exactly the attacks are, especially when they're not brought on by fat intake. I plan on doing my 4th flush this Friday.
