Anyone know any safe treatment or even quick relief methods for Gall Bladder attacks? I'm going insane. I feel like I haven't slept in days. Some of these attacks last for hours. I know they won't remove it until the baby is born, but what the hell do I do in the meantime? I already watch my diet like crazy!!

Go to the hospital and beg for pain medication? Idk. I've been there. During my 4th pregnancy, and when they came on all I could do was scream, cry, pace , throw up and sometimes scream because the pain was so excrutiating. I begged God and prayed that he would take the pain away, then I got mad when he didn't. When I first starting having them I was in my 3rd trimester. The first time I went to L&D thinking I was having weird contractions. I was told to take pepcid and sent home. I went to the ER (because at first it started with chest pain), they did a cardiac workup, ran other tests, then when all came back normal the doctor said "if this continues get a u/s of your gall bladder". It wasn't until after I finally delivered the baby that it came back again and went to my pcp who sent me for u/s sure enough it was my gall bladder. Later I was told that it wasn't addressed while pregnant because a surgeon wouldn't touch me with a ten foot pole. I feel for you. I ended up going back to ER before was scheduled to see surgeon after 8 hours of constant pain, just wanting pain relief, and they decided to take it out that same day. I was like THANK GOD.

Ugh that's miserable. I get a lot of gallbladders at work and usually they are given IV antibiotics, pain meds, not allowed anything by mouth (maybe clear or full liquids) and prepared for surgery in a few weeks. I have never dealt with it in pregnancy. I can't imagine I'm sorry and I hope you feel better. Can you call you dr? Maybe they could recommend something ?

You poor thing, that must be miserable! I have a couple of friends who controlled their gall bladder attacks with a strict diet until they were able to have it removed but beyond that, I don't know that there is much else you can do.

Aww, that really stinks. I wish I had some good advice, but I've got no idea.
