Fatigue with gallbladder
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.

Can it cause anxiety? I am always exhausted, and was told I had gallstones. My GI dr said he don't  normally remove them.

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!
