I am a 32 year old female, 5'7'', 133lbs, on no medications, and am in good health. Ever since my son was born in 1996, I have had stomach issues off and on (occasional stomach upset, nausea, epigastric pain, bloating, etc.). I have had numerous endoscopes, colonoscopies, and gb ultrasounds but all have been negative. The past year I have experienced some hairloss, a foggy headed feeling, short term memory loss and have had more bad days with
my stomach than good. I even had an episode of feeling like I was going to faint while I was driving on the expressway out of no where. I felt dizzy, shaky, had chest tightness, a pressure in my head and behind my eyes, and felt like I might pass out, which lasted for about three hours. Due to that I went to my primary and had my dr and an endocrinologist do bloodwork to which have all come back normal. He referred me to a gastro dr. who decided to do a HIDA scan (which I had never been offered before) and it showed a 10% ejection. He said that it is close to non functioning and that it could be the cause of all my stomach issues. He recommended I get it removed and I have surgery scheduled for Sept. 29. Last week I had another almost fainting episode while driving and have not been able to get rid of this dizzy, nauseous feeling. My primary doesn't think there is an correlation between my gallbladder and this dizziness so he is sending me to a cardiologist, pulmonologist and neurologist. However, he did an EKG and echocardiogram which all came back normal. I'm going to have a heart holter monitor, MRI and pulmonary function test done this week to make sure there is nothing wrong there. My question is, could a diseased gallbladder make someone so very dizzy for a prolonged period of time? Has anyone had the same sort of experience?
