Ok here's my situation. For about four years now I have been having problems with abdominal pain, nausea, and bloating. At first it was just when I binged on alcohol. Now it's present constantly, and about 6 months ago after eating too much before bed I was in tremendous pain, and I started feeling like I'm going to faint from time to time. Now I have that feeling on an almost constant basis. It's worse when my abdominal pain is worse, but even when I don't have pain it sticks with me. It almost feels like you feel when you have a bad cold just constantly. They did multiple tests on me, and they say I don't have ulcers, my pancreas is fine, but the ultrasound showed sludge in my gallbladder. Now they're sending me in for a Hida scan. My question is has anyone else gone through this? Also if it is my gallbladder and I get it out will the sick/tired/lightheaded feeling still stick with me?
