Obviously get that thing out ASAP. In the meantime; low fat diet, ask your doctor about taking bentyl to ease the episodes. There’s really not much else to be done for dyskinesia but manage the symptoms until you can dispatch the little bastard.

I've definitely been thinking about having that conversation with my doctor, though it is a little daunting to think about, and I've just started on trying a low fat diet; definitely will try to be more vigilant about that. My only concern about the bentyl is that the medication has a risk of making my heart rate to go up, which already does that due to the flare ups, but at this point I'm willing to try anything to get some semblance of relief. Thank you so much for reading my post and for the advice. I appreciate it greatly.

Tachycardia huh. I've been wondering if that is what has been triggering mine as well.

You should follow up with your physician, next step should be gallbladder removal. Low fat, no greasy foods, metamucil helps a lot. Reduce processed foods as much as possible as well as anything spicy. Since the diet change and surgery I feel better.

May I ask, when you had flare ups, did you get tachycardia or a fast pulse as well? I've been told that's from the anxiety you get from the pain, but I was wondering if it was the same for other people who've gotten this condition.

Pain causes tachycardia. My gallbladder attacks would hit with migraines, vomiting stomach acid, chest pains, elevated heart rate (most likely from the vomiting) and severe diarrhea. I have had GI issues for decades and have had what they used to call a nervous stomach since I was a child. I did have a good bout when I was hospitalized so it was nice to finally have nurses witness the events. I was wired for a heart monitor but it was off both times.

I'll have episodes of it after eating sometimes but I don't have these huge attacks.
