All of you may want to ask about your gallbladders. They can do a nuclear medicine study that tracks the emptying of the gallbladder. I had to have an emptying study on my stomach and gallbladder prior to the celiac diagnosis. I had the upper right quadrant pain right around and under the ribs. I had my gallbladder removed as a result of the tests and I am sooooo happy! My stomach also does not work well, but it is better after the gluten-free diet.

Your gallbladder is one of those organs that is not really needed, if you are having problems with it. Four small scars and the pain is gone. E-mail if you want more info.

Good luck

I really do not recommed the neuclear medicine test if you do not REALLY need to have it. It is pure TORTURE!!!

I had this test before my diagnosis. They thought that my gall bladder probably needed to come out (wasn't the gall bladder it was Celiac Disease).

For the study you are injected with this radioactive dye stuff. THEN here comes the TORTURE...you must lay COMPLETELY still for 3 hours underneath this machine that is pressed up against your stomach that takes constant pictures of the dye. You get a 5 min break in the middle to drink some fatty milk and eat a cookie(yep good idea for people with celiac). Then it's straight back to laying on a cold hard metal table for the rest of your 3 hours. TORTURE I tell you!! Not even able to scratch your nose!! I do not recomend it at all!! Be VERY sure it is necessary before you do it.

I think it may be related to my gall bladder, too. Can you have normal liver function and still have problems with your gall bladder? What I've read about gall bladder disease seems to fit my situation but I'm not clear how the two are related as far as making a dx is concerned.

I have had my gall bladder checked through ultrasound and it was ok. I think my problem is inflammation of my soft cartaledge around my ribs because the pain improved after being on an anti-inflammatory medication, of course my pain was on both sides and I am being checked and treated for Lupus which is an inflammatory disease!

I only suggested to see your doctor because I didn't want to scare the daylights out of you :D

I had a sonogram of my liver and gall bladder this past week. It was painless, and showed the tech whether or not I had gall stones. (I had none, thank God!) The funny thing is, that it did show that my intestines were inflamed in that section. The doctor had told me that "all tests" came back negative, and that I "do not have a gluten problem", so I ate a sandwich the day before the sonogram. No gluten=feel great, gluten=inflamed intestines. DUH! I do have a problem with gluten! I'll be getting Dr. Fine's test this summer. What I'm getting at, is the pain in the upper right side under the ribs could very well be caused by an irritated or inflamed intestine. Good luck at figuring it out.

    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.  
    • A gluten free multi won't hurt but it would be better to call your doctor and get them to give you a lab slip for a vitamin and mineral panel. At the least get your iron levels checked before you supplement as that can be toxic over time in large doses.  May not be the case for you but when I went gluten free I started eating a lot more soy. Turns out I am sensitive to it and it gives me issues similiar to yours. Some of us do have issues with other foods. Dairy, soy and corn are pretty common. If you consume any you could try eliminating them and see if things improve. If when you add them back into your diet your symptoms return then drop them again until you have been very well healed.
