I have no idea. *UPDATE*

I've been to the doctor and the ER. Help me. I have SEVERE right side pain, slightly elevated bilirubin levels, and extreme vomiting. I can't eat, can't drink. The whites of my eyes are yellow. I've had blood tests to rule out infections, viruses, pancreatic issues, and liver issues and all results were normal except the elevated bilirubin. Had a sono of my liver, pancreaus, and gallbladder...which was normal. I'm 24, only have fibromyalgia, IBS, and reactive airways. I take symbicort and albuterol. I have Implanon birth control. 

What the heck is wrong with me? And what should I be pushing the doctor to do? He seems to think best plan is wait it out. 


UPDATE:
I was sent back to the ER. Had a CT scan and more blood work. CT was normal. Bloodwork, my bilirubin levels were down from my last ER visit. Doctor strongly feels it's an ulcer in my stomach or intestine so treating for that, if no improvement, then early next week suppose to get a scope procedure done, if that looks good, then a functional test for my gallbladder.

 Sounds like liver issues. I'd get a second opionion and fast if the tests ruled at normal.

 I would take your test results and seek out a second opinion.  The fact that your eyes are yellow is a red flag to me.

 Is the pain high or low on your right side? Low could be appendacitious (sp?) With your billirubin levels being elavated and the white of your eyes being yellow I'd say it is liver related. Your liver could be leaking very slowly and causing pain. This could be very serious. You  need to see a specialist, not just an er dr. You could have a gull stone stuck in the common bile duct , that duct connects with the liver.

Thank you. Liver looked good on CT scan. Second opinion says stomach or intestinal ucler.

High. Apendix looks good. Bilirubin levels on the decline from new bloodwork. Liver looked good on CT. Doctor feels it's an ucler in my stomach or intestine.
