When I had my gallbladder problems a while ago, I had pains in my stomach.
Not cramps. Just downright PAIN!!!
It did seem to get worse when I ate spicy food, such as tomato soup of barbecue sauce.
Then I couldn't get the Dr to believe me. The ER Dr tried to tell me it was just gas. Nothing else.
1 month later,I was having surgery to remove my gallbladder

Although both of the mentioned diseases share many common symptoms like fatigue, vomiting, bloating, indigestion and gas, there are differences in their 'pain' patterns.
Patients of liver disease would complain of heaviness in their limbs while patients of gallbladder disease would experience pain between the shoulder blades in the back.
However, both disease may cause pain in the upper abdomen especially on the right side.

I am just trying to find out what is considered elevated liver enzymes. I was told the numbers went from 10 to 35. I have no clue. But my eyes get a little yellow off and on and the test came back that my number was 41 and I was told that is nothing to worry about. Also, my legs and feet swell every day. I am getting no where with my doctors office.  Can anyone shed a little light on this problem. Or at least tell me the doc is right and I should not worry.  But the swelling???

You need to find another doctor that passed med. School. I don't want to scare you but anytime you turn yellow, it means that something is wrong. It doesn't have to be life threatinig, but someone has to find out why you are turning jaundice. I'm not a doctor but I am a medical lab scientist and these are some of the blood test we do for doctors to help them diagnose what's wrong. It could be something as simple as a virus. Ie; Mono, etc. I sugest you find a dr. Who will order lab tests on you.
