Gall Attack
A friend of mine gets SEVERE nausea and dizziness every 2 or so years, which she says lasts about 4 days, and her Doctor told her is was a Gall bladder attack. Sometimes there is pain in the Gall bladder, other times there is none. I've read that this can be attributed to Gall Stones, but the Doctor never gave her treatment for stones, and why does it only happen every 2 or so years? What could this be, what happens when a person gets a gall attack, and what can be done to stop it?

Mike, I have no idea why it happens every two years, but the easiest way to find out if she has gallstones is to have an abdominal ultrasound done. Good luck.
