i was with a friend a few days ago when i had an attack and said the symptoms i had where very similar to those he had a few years ago and it turned out to be a gallbladder problem, he had his gallbladder removed and his attacks stopped and his bloatedness and passing of wind (burping) stopped. is this a possibility for my symptoms........i also failed to mention that during and after my attacks i pass a lot of wind (burping)

have you had an ultrasound of your liver and gallbladder done?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I have had one done on my liver and the result was that it just had some fatty tissue. Did you mean gallbladder and if so no it has not been scanned
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

yes, I meant gallbladder. looks like autocorrect had different ideas.

I have been taking omeprazol recently to try to cure the problem
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

how long have you been on omeprazole and at what dose?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
For 2 years at 20mg twice a day but it made no difference
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

have they also looked for a hiatal hernia as well?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I had the camera down a few months ago and they said it was ok
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

does not should like gallbladder, although there are additional tests they can do to check the gallbladder.

Has your doctor done a heart test called a Holter monitor or Event monitor?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No I don't think so. I was put on a bike and once heart rate was up injected with dye into blood and scanned and then once heart rate had lowered injected with dye into blood and scanned again
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

So that was a cardiac stress test to look for ischemia or pre-heart attack symptoms. However, an occasional irregular heart rhythm could also explain your symptoms and wouldn't necessarily be seen on the stress test.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
