I have had indigestion and right side shoulder pain ,please suggest

Hi I saw the post about shoulder pain on right side and indigestion being a gallbladder issue. My gallbladder was removed in 98. This pain is anterior lateral to the clavicle. in 2003 I had a mysterious episode that landed me in the hospital for a week with the docs swearing it had to be my gallbladder -- the one I had removed in 98...later they said a liver virus must be the culprit. now Im having indigestion with this sudden (over last few days) shoulder pain. any ideas?

Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. The indiestion you are suffering from is usually reported after gall bladder removal in most of the patients. Especially after fatty food intake patient can develop severe pain similar to the pain before gal bladder removal. Constipation can be cured by having high fiber food items and more of the fluid foods. Gastric ulcer, back problems, pneumonia, heart pains and stones in the kidney also cause pain in the patients. Hence pain should not be taken lightly. Contact a medical practitioner immediately. Wish you good health.

Hi,
After removing gall bladder, indigestion is a common problem to face. As gall bladder store the bile which help in digestion of fat. So avoid taking fat. Drink plenty of water, eat green vegetable, go for jogging and use homoeopathic medicine - 1. Lycopodium 30 - 2 drops 3 times 2. Nux vom 30 - 4 drops at night.
Shoulder pain may be due to gas.
Please investigate liver function test.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here I suffer with indigestion and this is pretty much all the time. I get a really stabbing pain in my back across my left shoulder blade and in the left side of the chest. This is particularly acute if I am propped up in bed. If I lie flat the problem lessens. I don t take any remedies as I feel they only mask the problem. I eat a healthy diet hardly any alcohol, don t smoke and am not overweight. If I eat or drink milk it seems to go away for a while and then comes on as my stomach empties.

I am female age 45...in perimenopause-recently had a period after two and half months. Daily experience of feeling bloated and look like I m pregnant(I am not), bowel changes include urgent need to move bowels several times during the day yet urgency doesn t match quantity-stools are soft to loose, often feel indigestion, bloat, occasional heartburn. My diet is relatively healthy, exercise 1-3 X s wk. Can t seem to beat the bloated, gassy feelings I experience daily. Have had gastritis in the past but didn t last this long, but I m not ruling it out either. Concerned symptoms may be a gastritis, food allergy/sensitivity, or perhaps a diverticulosis. Suzane
