Can severe diarrhea, vomiting bile, nausea and dehydration be symptoms of gallbladder attack?

Hello Doctor,

For the past I would say 2 days I have had severe diarrhea which is I would say yellowish brownish and slight orange. My main concern is that it has a very strong foul smell similar to vomitt or bile. I feel dehydrated and a little weak also but not nauseated so much or have any other symptoms. I have had this happen to me on and off over the last few years and it comes and goes but my diet has been pretty much the same. I recently 3 times this year have had what I believe is a gal bladder attack

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand your concern, looking to your history it seems chronic intestinal infection and not the gallbladder problem because this is not the sign and symptoms of the gallbladder pathology, If I would be your doctor then I would treat you as patient of chronic dysentery of protozoal infection and straight,away put you on antiprotozoal drugs (Metronidazole 400 mg twice a day for 10 days) and if it fails to respond then I would ask for some investigation to rule out the possibility of other differential etiologies but I am sure the initial treatment would give satisfactory result have nice day.
