Gallbladder Issues - No Pain - Numerous Symptoms
Thanks in advance for anyone's input.

I have been suffering from chronic nausea and vomiting for almost 6 months.  Recently, had HIDA test and the ejection rate was just below 20% (but no pain).  I also had an endoscopy, but nothing looked abnormal (aside from a little tissue damage from the constant vomiting).  At work today, I got extremely dizzy, nauseous, started smelling things that weren't there (like a skunk and graham crackers), and vomited multiple times.  I started feeling better after about 10-20 minutes but am still really dizzy and nauseous about 12 hours later.

Currently, I am taking Protonix in the am and pm for heartburn problems that I have had for about 3 years (Dr thinks that it was likely GURD related symptoms).  Recently replaced Protonix with Dexilant in the pm.

Any advice would be great.

Do you have any pain that could be kidney stones? Or, did they do an ultrasound of your kidneys?  Just in case one is causing this ?  Just a thought.  I have both kidney and gallstones :(

No.  That is apparently what is giving the Doctors so much confusion - there is no pain at all... anywhere.

It's just all of these other issues (vomiting, nausea, terrible gallbladder function, dizziness, etc).

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Your persisting symptoms nausea and vomiting could indicate a viral gastroenteritis. The other causes could be jaundice if there is yellowish discoloration of skin, food poisoning if the symptoms occurred shortly after taking food, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes cholecystitis and pancreatitis.

Hope a urine analysis did not reveal an infection, as urinary tract infection can cause these symptoms. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Jaundice and food poisoning have been ruled out.  Also, the urine analysis and blood work were both normal.

A few samples were taken during the endoscopy, so hopefully something will show up.  Should know later this week.

sounds to me like you may have some pancreatic issues.  Has you common bile duct been examined? There could be sludge, which would not cause pain.  But this can cause pacreatitis.
