I am trying to discern whether or not my symptoms are due to gallbladder problems. I have known gallstones, but no inflammation was present when I had an ultrasound. Apparently, because I had no inflammation at the time, my doctor wasn't too worried about gallbladder issues. I have pain in many places along the right side of my body. I know that some of these symptoms are suggestive of gallbladder problems such as a dull ache under ribs on right side, radiating to my back, mild nausea, and pain near my right shoulder blade. However, I also have chronic moderate to severe right jaw pain and pain in my right trap. muscle, along with pain down the right side of my neck. More importantly, I have regular bouts of feeling "toxic" or poisoned. During these times it seems like I am also more sensitive to smells, mold, chemicals, etc. Has anyone heard of these toxic feelings as being associated with gallbladder problems? It sometimes then progresses to a sore throat and swollen glands, which then dissipates after a few days. Any help would be much appreciated. This is my first online post ever, by the way, so please forgive my "expansivenss!"
In chinese medicine the gallbladder/liver is very much connected to joint stress. I know that when I had GB problems that the exact word I used was toxic. As a liver and GB increase in congestion/pressure by a stone or sludge block toxicity does increase. In my case I had bacteria in the GB so there was a toxic sense. The stagnation is toxic sense liquids should be flowing. Chinses medicine really helped my with the natural tinctures to relieve toxicity and stones good luck
I know this post is old, but I am wondering if you found out what was causing your symptoms? I have the exact same symptoms. I hope you are better now. Please let me know if it was your gallbladder and if you had it removed.
Thanks so much!
