hi julie
welcome to health care magic
if you are mentioning about gallstones, then it must be right side,,,?
please cross check with your medical history about APD( hyperacidity) and chronic irritable bowels?
usualy, the pain gets sorted with basic antacid which helps for gastric emptying and bowel motions, ultimately the gas domb gets relieved and one feels better
if it happens regularly, you must rule out the gastric pathology like APD, any liver involvment or even worms menifastation
and to rule our gallstones, sonogapphy is must

take care

I have been having a distended abdomen off and on for a year now. I thought it was just because of what I was eating but I realized it didn t correlate with my eating. I had a kidney infection last year during the summer and I have been prone to UTI s for a while. Just this past week, my left side started to hurt. The sharp pain went away but it is cramping in my upper left quadrant and my left side. Yesterday in the evening, my right flank developed a sharp pain. I noticed just now there is a small bruise on my right side, not recalling any trauma that could have occurred from it. I do not have a fever. Any thoughts of what could be going on? I don t want to go to the doctors quite yet, I feel like my symptoms aren t severe enough but I m a little worried.

Hello. My husband, son and I all ate fish from a fast food restaurant on Thursday. On Friday, I had diarrhea over the course of the day with some abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue. I felt better by that evening. My son was a little nauseous on Friday night, but felt better with Pepto Bismol and tums. My husband became feverish with chills, severe weakness, and severe diarrhea on Friday evening. He has continued to feel weak since then with diarrhea and some nausea. He has no appetite. I have been offering crackers, soup, ginger ale, and popsicles. He is very tired and has been sleeping most of 2 + days. He does not think he needs to see the Dr. ..... He is diabetic (oral meds) and is being treated with hormones for prostate cancer. Thank you for your help.
