Do I have gallbladder issues?
Hello,

I was initially diagnoised w/ IBS.  Lots of constipation.  Started taking daily Metamucil.

However, now my health is really freaking me out.  I am having the following symptoms - lightheadedness/dizziness throughout the day, lots of lower and midback pain - seems stronger on the right side, I feel some spasms throughout the daily somehwere below my right rib area, daily dull headaches, light green/yellowish stools w/ lots of food bits, right sided dull abdominal pain...  Wierd pain below my sternum.  Lots of GI reflux in the AM.

I am now nauseous anytime I eat :( :(  

They've done an abdominal ultrasound several weeks ago looking maily for gallstones or liver mass (because I also had some slightly elevated liver enzymes).  I also have a fatty liver.

Could this be signs of a non-functioning gallbladder?  I'm scared that after a CT scan 3 months ago (when my symptoms were not that bad), an ultrasound 4 weeks ago (before I started having daily nausea/dizziness/right sided spasms)...they have yet to tell me what's going on.

Tomorrow I go back to my PCP and hopefully he will order a hidascan...?  Any thoughts?

You could have a nonfunctioning gallbladder.  If they order the hida scan and it comes back low and your symptoms are reproduced with cck then very good chance of this being the problem.
