I have just had an ultrasound and hida scan for my gallbladder along with labs this morning. Would a malfuncioning gallbladder cause fatigue. I have not only had typical symptoms for gallbladder problems but have been severly fatigues.
Yes, gallbladder disease causes extreme fatigue. I started having pain in May which increased over the summer. Along with the fatigue. I would go straight home from work and crawl into bed at 6 or 7 p.m. and sleep for 14 hours easily. Four about four months I could not work 5 days straight at the office; I always had one or two days per week sick leave, either from pain or exhaustion (very happy I have a considerate boss!) I had my gb removed a month ago; slept abut 17/18 hours a day for the week after surgery, but am feeling great now.
Thanx for commenting. I am soooo hoping that once I get my gallbladder taken care of that this fatigue will subside. Its terrible. I have not done much of anything the last month or so seems I always need a nap and yes, I'm in bed usually by 7.
Hi there, I totally understand. When I will still waiting for a diagnosis I just fell into a terrible rut this past summer - was I tired? was I lazy? was I depressed? and then it just became circular .... and the pain was so bad at times too ... once you have your surgery, you are going to feel good - and I didn't know what feeling good was like anymore. after feeling so horrible it was "ya hoo"! I begged my surgeon's secretary to get be an earlier date and she did so. Good luck!
