Feb/March 2006 - Three (3) severe gallbladder attacks, ambulance, IV pain meds, went away as quick as it came.
May 2008 - Birth of fourth (4th) child, epidural lumbar spinal puncture, leaking spinal fluid, extreme intense pain, finally a blood patch was done which relieved 75% of pain. Continued headaches, dizziness, pain at punture site (internal), neck pain, weakness...
July 2008 - Two MRI's, found boney hemangioma (incedental) on left C2 vertabrae, no treatment recommended
Aug 2008 - CT scan, nothing other than hemangioma, no treatment recommended, symptoms persist. Begin experiencing nausea in evening and through the night which is highly unusual.
Sep 2008 - Blood test reveal thyroid levels extremely out of normal range (both over and under levels at the same time).I have a long history of Thyroid dysfunction and was diagnose with Graves disease and Hashimoto's syndrome in 1998. Very little vitamin D, recommended 2000 units for two months, 1000 units thereafter. Nausea is almost all day and night now and some minor gallbladder pain begins.
Nov 2008 - Nausea is constant now, pain after I eat, diarreah and constipation, heart palpatations. I had a severe attack with nausea and went to ER. Diagnosed with Acute Pancreatitis, ultrasound revealed gallstones, admitted for 5 days, IV fluid only. Surgeon booked surgery for 3 weeks later, laparascopic gallbladder removal.
Dec 2008 - Surgery on Dec 9th, extreme pain in mid, centre of back, between the shoulder blades, Morphine had no effect on the pain. Released same evening. Pain has persisted with nausea, minor vomitting, pain under right rib cage, gallbladder pain after eating, full feeling all the time etc... The surgeon has now recommended scope (ERCP) for January and referal to gastroentonologist. I am getting tired of gravol and percocet.
Jan 2008 - constant nausea is back, pain in right, mid and left abdomen, tender and bloated abdomen, still pain after eating and lovely inconsistent bowel movements. Did I mention I am so tired that it takes every ounce of strenth I have to get up, even after 8 hrs. of sleep!!! I am waiting for my GI appointment, endoscopy and colonoscopy...
