Gall stones

Any advice to ease this attack :(

there's nothing I can tell you how to quell a gallbladder attack. You have to stay away from spicy and fatty food. If you have confirmed stones, why had the doc not suggested taking out your galbladder? I was in the hospital for 8 days at a time 3 times in one year for that problem: had it out and never had another problem.

During my attacks when I had gall stones I either pushed my hand on the spot or hold something really tight. I felt it helped a little on the pain.

Otherwise I agree with Alwsyzinpain about food and ask for removing of the gall bladder.
I got really much better after I removed my gall bladder. No more gall stone attacks and the horrific pain..

I was diagnosed with gall stones by my family doctor, after having been told by the doctor in the ER that I was just anxious. Because of that, I had to wait 3 months for it to be removed. Unfortunately, the only cure for the pain is to stay away from fatty foods (and probably spicy, as the others have said, but I really do not like anything spicy, so that was easy to stay away from). Once it was removed, I've had no problems. My uncle had his removed this past summer, and it was infected, so you probably don't want to ignore it if you haven't seen a doctor yet.
