I think this could be it. I had a dizzy spell a few nights ago after eating pad thai with rice noodles. I've also noticed twinkly vision recently, and I've been wanting a nap just about every day in the early afternoon for the last two months... (more)

Is the solution as straightforward as losing the weight? I would guess the problems are related to what you're eating and not your weight. Have you tried any kind of elimination diet? I saw Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride speak very... (more)

Are you keeping your diet high in fat? Some people go low fat to avoid attacks, but high fat diets keep the bile flowing. I was having terrible attacks until I switched back to paleo. Then I had a strange, but not painful, sensation for about a... (more)

Your gall bladder can indeed be healed. That's ridiculous that your doc told you it can't and that your only option is to take out 'the offending organ'. How about... change the offending diet that people regularly feed that organ. The organ is... (more)

It appears that gallstones form when the gallbladder isn't used much - like when eating a low-fat diet. With "normal" use of the gallbladder (i.e. when fats are regularly consumed), bile is released from the gallbladder to help with fat digestion.... (more)

Your gallbladder is on your lower RIGHT side, unless you have some physical anomaly. However, the pain normally associated with gallstones is higher, often just below the sternum and radiating through the back. Often, some labored breathing is... (more)
