Hi, I think I have Cholecystitis. I have been suffering from its symptoms for 3 months. My GP and the A&E are doing nothing about it. In fact, they gave me medicine for gastritis - which has made me feel worse.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I used to take cetrizine, haven't had it in a while because I have reduced the intake of food about 98%. No allergies to medicine that I have taken in my life.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have polycystic ovarian. An ultrasound scan that I paid for, showed that there are black blotches in my gallbladder.

Good morning. I am Dr Elliot and hope I can help

What symptoms are you experiencing?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I am currently experiencing nausea everyday, it is a problem even if i eat or not. Severe pain in my upper right or center abdomen.
Pain that spreads to my right shoulder or back sometimes.
Tenderness over my abdomen when it's touched.
I threw up in March 6 - 8 times and thought that it might have been something that i ate. Then I threw up again after 2 weeks which I found weird. Throwing up isn't a normal thing for me.

Thank you. And you have had an ultrasound showing a shadow in the gallbladder?
