Comment from: cksof3, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: December 01

I have bad taste in mouth in the morning along with nausea, hungry but can't eat, and only seem to wake up feeling bad. I have shooting pain on right side if sitting and low grade fever first 2 days, all seemed to happen after eating popcorn. The nausea started then, also infrequent elimination of stools, not diarrhea but not normal; I had all these symptoms with gallbladder pain.

Six years ago I ended up in hospital with inflamed gall bladder after a very painful session of gallstones. Treatment without surgery was successful although medical advice was to have it removed. Instead I followed a dairy free low fat diet and have had no more problems.
