- Any doctors in the house care to offer their opinion of what is up with me?
Well, if you’re the chap in my recent clinical reasoning exam it’s kidney stones but only present on one side as you had previously donated a kidney to a sister. You’re also suffering acute kidney injury and might have autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease 🤔 . I *may* have got carried away on that particular paper.
Have you checked you’ve got two kidneys? Have you? Have you a sister? Have you donated a kidney and forgotten?

If you wait a bit longer, and it _is_ gallstones, then when it does finally strike properly you will get rushed to A&E in an ambulance just in case you’re having a heart attack.
You can tell them as often as you like that you’re *not* having a heart attack but they just ignore you. Experts, they just think they know it all!

Not for me it doesn’t doctor after doctor giving me morphine and not listening to me when I politely tell them that morphine has zero effect on me.

Thanks for all those replies. There doesn’t seem much the NHS would do if it is gallstones unless I’m in crippling pain then they whip the gallbladder out. Pain only lasts a few seconds though, I’d this typical for gallstones initially? Can I look forward to it lasting much longer?Posted 2 months ago
Don’t want to bother the gp unnecessarily. I’ll see how it goes over the next few dayswelshfarmerSubscriber
Interesting. I had exact same symptoms twice about 8 years ago. (Both times after lot of driving in retrospect, last time after a 10 hour drive through Spain). Had ultrasound to check for for gallstones/kidney stones. Nothing. Never did get to the bottom of it but I came to my own conclusion that is was caused by trapped wind, possibly due to something like a small internal intestinal hernia caused by sitting for too long. Anyway, not had a repeat episode since. Good luck, hope yours goes away as I can still remember my mates laughing at me as I lay in a tent all night in Santander crippled with pain and groaning the night through as the spasms swept over me.Posted 2 months ago
