    Stomach Issues after Gallbladder removed..Dr says nothing can do

    Before thanksgiving was having some pains after eating. Went to family dr. sent me to get ultrasound and blood work. All came back normal, so sent me to do a HIDA scan.

    Digestive Enzymes then Ox Bile?

    Hi there. I had my gallbladder out about a month ago and have been having digestive problems ever since. I've been taking digestive enzymes which seem to help but now I see there's something called OX BILE that could also help, it's supposed to break down vitamins better. Only thing is on reputable sites such as webmd I don't see anything about ox bile, it's all over the no name sites. Would you suggest I try it or is it like I suspect snake oil?

    Every morning when it's time to go to school I wake up with nausea and vomiting.

    School started last Thursday, and on Thursday and Friday I couldn't eat all day and was throwing up in the morning. On the weekend I was totally fine. Now it's Monday, I am up and I feel really nauseous and sick right now. Why is this happening? Is it a mental thing, or is it something actually physical? I am a teenage guy, I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Thanks in advance.

    Diarrhea After Eating

    Hello! I recently started having urgent diarrhea after dining out. It happens within 30 minutes of eating, and is accompanied by the shakes and the sweats. After going to the bathroom, I feel fine, but perhaps a little weak. I think I have narrowed down the culprit to restaurant mayonnaise. I used to get this same thing years ago after eating at Burger King, and stopped eating there. Now I wonder if it wasn't the mayo they put on the Whopper. BTW, I eat real mayo from the jar at home with no....

    Acid Reflux

    I've been having acid reflux symptoms for the past 4 years. I get stabbing pains in my stomach and nausea which in result gives me terrible anxiety. I take 20 mg omeprazole twice a day and it doesn't help me at all. The stabbing pains don't go away even if i try to settle my stomach with bland foods like oatmeal, soup, etc. I'm starting to lose hope.
