Likely unrelated: Your isolated bilirubin of 1.6 may be a normal finding for you (assuming all other liver tests are alright). Hepatitis testing done? Some people can have a slight elevation of bilirubin ; be normal for them, called gilbert's syndrome. The itching may be evaluated by a dermatologist for a skin condition. ...Read more

Gallstones : If you have gallstones on ultrasound then your RUQ pain is most likely symptoms of your gallstones. The elevated CRP suggests inflammation and the alk phos suggests some type of biliary obstruction. I suggest you see a surgeon in your area to discuss options. Please take a copy of your ultrasound and labs. ...Read more

Talk to your MD: Your blood profile is unlikely related to what you're feeling unless there are other causes like hypothyroidism which can cause microcytosis. Your abdominal pain is likely related to a symptomatic gallstone, causing pain as the gallbladder contracts.Pancreatitis can develop but not currently. ...Read more

Biliary colic: Gallstone attacks aka biliary colic are right sided, above the umbilicus, lasts 20 minutes or longer, associated with nausea and occasional vomiting. Fatty foods make it worse. Go for a surgery consult. Gallstones can be dangerous when infection or obstruction occur. Risk benefit analysis is in favor of gallbladder removal. Hep c does not change this recommendation. Be well. ...Read more

Feeling bloated is this normal for stomach ucler or gallstones?

Feeling bloated is this normal for stomach ucler or gallstones?

Yes: Bloating can certainly occur if you have a stomach ulcer or gallstones. It can occur with a lot of other issues too such as gastroenteritis, gluten or lactose sensitivities, irritable bowel syndrome, recent antibiotics etc...I would take some probiotics (in yogurt or as a supplement) and see your doctor for a full workup. ...Read more

I have bloating/pressure in sternum and right ribcage area. U/s negative for gallstones. Normal  hida scan & upper endoscopy. Whatelse could it be?

Still could be GERD: Common things are common, it still could be from reflux or esophageal spasm. Endoscopy will not show it unless it has changed the tissue. There are other tests (ba swallow, manometry, bernstein ) fibromyalgia is often overlooked as a cause of chest pain as is anxiety. Also the cartilage in the chest and ribs can be inflamed. Work with your doctor on a methodical approach with an open mind. ...Read more

Not sure.: without seeing all of the liver test results, it is difficult to comment on what may be happening. Obviously, with your ALT elevated, there is still something wrong. I would return to your gastroenterologist for further explanation and evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

After suffering a gallstone attack, how long might it be before one feels normal again?

After suffering a gallstone attack, how long might it be before one feels normal again?

Depends: Different types of gallstones develop in the gallbladder and lead to biliary colic after obstructing the cystic duct which is the draining duct of the gallbladder. These stones remain in the gallbladder and lead to recurrent attacks of biliary colic (pain) unless they are small enough to pass through the biliary system. Therefore, i suggest you get checked by a surgeon if your pain is recurrent. ...Read more
