Suggestions/direction is most appreciated... 41yr old very fair skinned female:

DOES IT SOUND LIKE GALLBLADDER SYMPTOMS TO YA'LL OR ANYONE WHO'S HAD SIMILAR???

Symptoms about 4-5 mos.=

Gnawing pain (like a knuckle boring thru from inside) throughout the day with or without eating, about 2" below right ribcage about 2" from center of abdomen.

Also, constant gas. Use to have bm every morning...now only once every 2 days. Tea colored stools.
. . . . . . . . .
Ultrasound showed no stones but these findings per MD:
Gallbladder poorly distended.
Nonshadowing echogenic material is floating within the gallbladder.
No gallbladder wall thickening or biliary dilation is seen.
Poor distention of gallbladder could reflect chronic cholecystitis.
Material in gallbladder doesn't shadow, it cannot be confirmed as gallstones.
This could represent sludge or atypical stones.

Thanks for any contributions & good to you all, Bev

Just went to my MD for my ultra sound results yesterday. Have same symptoms as you in same area. Have had a few times where my abdomen was very sore to the touch. Also one of the Gall Bladder symptoms is back pain at the lower right shoulder blade. I also have had bloating of the abodomen, I don't know it you have that or not. My results represented sludge filled gall bladder. My MD said that this is usually the first sign of the beginning of stones and He said it only takes one the size of a grain of salt to cause you problems. My wife had hers removed in her twenties and has no problem eating any types of food. Some people have minor problems with fatty foods. I am having it removed and it is a very common procedure now, being only a couple of slits to remove. I hope this helps you. I have had this for about the same amount of time and I am looking forward to this. Good luck
