Just read the posts and wonder if your stomach pain could be caused by eating wheat, gluten?
I sufferrrd terribly with stomach pain just under gallbladder area. At suggestion of a GI he said to eliminate foods for 4 days and only drink liquids to allow the stomach and intestines flush themselves. On two different ocasdions I did this to no avail. I had severe attack and had to go to hospital and had a ultra scan done and said it was my gallbladder. I had my gallbladder removed and the pain did not go away.
I found out a few years later that my diet was causing this pain, I won't go into all that here, but ran into another person who had ceiliac disease and she said the pain I was experiencing was where the stomach emptied into the intestinrs, there are tiny villi that were being destroyed by the wheat/gluten. She gave me some Ultra inflam-x to take, it was an elimination of foods diet and you took this powder and put in smoothie and drank it. It helped the pain I was having! I have been off wheat/gluten since 2009 and the pain hasn't come back.
I have been self testing recently because I had issues after a concussion that I was told was the reason for my nerve pain in my hands and feet, but that didn't feel right to me.
I noticed my Sugar levels are on the high side during fasting (around 110-115) and I want to nip this in the bud before I go too much higher. I've changed my diet completely. I like to take natural remedies, and heard good things about bitter melon (gourd), so I decided I'd try.
I took less than 1/4 tsp once a day for 2 days. My numbers were looking better which was shocking to me that it happened so fast, and the electric shocks I was getting in my hands and feet were gone. Amazing!!!
But, on the second day, I started feeling a bit woozy, and felt like my heart was racing a mile a minute. I got pressure in my chest. I have had pancreatitis and my GB removed about 14 years ago, and I'm guessing that because I don't have a GB, I'm getting pain from the melon stimulating things? I'm going to see my doctor, but I was curious if anyone else has had this issue or used bitter melon with no GB?
UPDATE: I wound up going to the emergency room because I was having bad chest pains and such a bad headache that I was spinning and vomiting. It was horrible. My husband wanted to call an ambulance, but I just had him drive me. I got such severe motion sickness on the way there, I thought I was going to pass out. All-in-all EKG was normal, bloodwork normal, MRI head scan normal... So I have a few guesses what it could be. I,also, suffer from post concussive syndrome from head trauma I sustained a few months ago. I think because I was "detoxing" and increased insulin and other functions in my body, it caused a migraine. It was made worse, because I'm #1 PMSing, and now that I'm in my 40's PMS comes in a vicious headache form. #2 I get lots of minor dizzy spells constantly from the head trauma, and this made it worse, and #3 Detox was flooding my system making the detox headache worse. But they gave me pain medicine and I could function as an almost human today. I hope this helps someone.
I had a simple gallbladder surgery and the doctor cut my bile duct and liver I had to be shipped to another hospital and I stayed there a month I had to have an 8 hour surgery I have been in and out of the hospital for two years due to this bile duct injury does anyone know a lawyer that could help me?
If I suspect that gallbladder issues are at play, which I increasingly do given the strange sense of heaviness and discomfort on the right side of my abdomen, what can I do right now, absent performing a liver and gallbladder flush, to support my gallbladder, promote better bile flow, and help soften any stones that may be present?
Prior to performing any kind of flush, is a colonic absolutely necessary? Is anyone familiar with the Black Box detox protocol from Quicksilver Scientific?
