Okay so for over a week now I have had cramping, major gas, belching, bloating, diarreha, and vomiting. I also have run a slight fever and headaches. Granted I do have a UTI that is pretty bad, but urgent care doctor said the stomach problems are totally different than the UTI problems. He said that my stomach and intestine probably lost all good bacteria and now my stomach is super irritated. He said to take imodium, Prilosec OTC, and gas medication and it should go away. I am now getting some dull pains in right side, but gas and bloating has gone away. I have for past week had a few days of major stomach issues explained above, then have a day that I feel much better and think it is all gone, and then it comes back and gets worse each time it seems. My aunt who just had her gall bladder removed said my symptoms were similar to hers. What are some of your experiences? Should I trust the PA from urgent care (could not get into regular Dr). I was in such bad pain last night at 3am I almost went to ER.

You have to be persistent. I kept going and they treated me for an ulcer and I went to the ER several times. The last time I went to the ER I was in so much pain they had to give me morphine. They finally did an ultrasound and found out it was my gallbladder. When I woke up I was being medevaced to another ER and they had to perform emergency surgery. I had so many stones that they had no choice but to take out my gallbladder. At the time I was just 28. They said it was caused by my pregnancies and 4 in the short time period was just a lot on my body. And my pregnancies kept the pressure off my gallbladder but after I had my son things changed. Just stay persistent because I think that if they would have did the proper test in the beginning they might have caught it. But when the pain is really really bad that you can't move than it might be your gallbladder. My pain seemed worse after I exercised.
