Your Questions About Fatty Liver Symptoms Diarrhea

Robert asks…

Lots of pain in diaphram (where my rib cage meets) right through to my back after eating ice cream?

I’ve gotten this for a few years now. The pain lasts for more than 12 hours and it use to come no matter what I eat. This time I had ice cream and it hurts so much I can’t even sleep. I got a gall bladder test done and the doctor’s said my gall bladder’s fine. I looked up lactose intolerance but it doesn’t sound like it because the symptoms include: nausea, cramps, bloating, gas, and diarrhea. I don’t have any of these, except the pain I described. What is it then if it’s not my gall bladder?

admin answers:

It would help if you could describe the pain more. First – sharp or dull? Second – (after eating) is it constant/relentless or does it come & go in waves?
Do some foods tend to cause the pain more often than others? In particular, have you ever noticed that fatty foods like pizza or hamburgers are worse than others?
It really does sound like its either gallstones or ulcers (prob duodenal) as mentioned above. If you notice a pattern with fatty foods, its more likely gallstones. If antacids help, it may be ulcers. Do you have heartburn?
Do you have any jaundice or yellowing of your skin or eyes?
Do you remember what “gallbladder test” was done? A sonogram and check of liver enzymes would be a good start. If you had them done at a time you had no symptoms, its conceivable that you passed your stone and no longer had any irritation or remaining stones.
TALK ABOUT THIS WITH YOUR DOCTOR. You’ve been having symptoms for a few years now – something needs to be done. These are usually relatively harmless (the discomfort aside), but if it simmers for too long untreated, more serious complications can potentially develop.

Problems less likely based on your description, but possible:
Chronic Pancreatitis
Chronic Hepatitis
