My Gallbladder was a trigger
Posted by triciabond—January 20th, 2012

I have had back to back Hemiplegic Migraines for a year now. I found out that one of the major triggers was my gallbladder. It took them almost a year to figure out that it had just stopped working. Now I have a small amount of liver damage and kidney problems.

I am writing you to let you know that I am no longer having back to back migraines, since they took my gallbladder out. My ER doctor and Gastrointestinal Surgeon explained to me that due to the lack of function of my gallbladder this was causing my body to react and triggering my on going migraines.

Yes I still do have Hemiplegic Migraines, but now instead of having them 4 to 5 times a week I have now gone 12 days without one. I Want the public to know that foods, smells, sounds, and lack of sleep could only be the tip of what is causing your migraines to flare up. Ones digestive system is very important to look at. If your digestive system is not working properly this could have horrible affects on ones migraines.
