I'm not looking for a diagnosis, and I'm not looking for a cure. I just want to understand, out of curiosity.
I KNOW the answer is to stop eating grains, however I'm curious to learn about this.
I know how the gallbladder works, I know that eating low-fat can cause gallbladder trouble, however this I describe here happens only when I eat grains. I can eat high-fat or low-fat Primal without any trouble whatsoever. I can even eat high-carb Primal without gallbladder pain.
WARNING.CONTAINS GROSS DETAILS. SKIP TO THE * * * AT THE END OF THIS POST TO SEE MY QUESTION.
So from early 2010 to April 2011, I had gallbladder problems, but it got all sorted out within one month of eating Primal.
Since then, I have not had any gallbladder pain or vomiting unless I eat grains for more than a few days in a row. If I eat grains, I will vomit on the 4th day.
Day 1: rice. Day 2: cookie. Day 3: popcorn.
But it could be anything. Corn chips... pizza... whatever.
Night 3: Can't sleep because of pain. The pain is very dull and weak, but still, I can't sleep.
Day 4: shuddering with pain, weakness, can't comprehend more than 2 words when listening to someone talk.
I will vomit the whole day, about every 15 to 30 minutes. Yesterday I think it was from 8am to 9pm or so.
Vomit is yellow, just watery. I guess it takes 15-30 minutes so that stomach juices build up?
Before, when I had gallbladder problems, the vomit was neon green, and I would just vomit once or twice, generally at night, though it would take forever to finish.

Soooo.... does anyone have any idea whatsoever why this happens only when I eat grains? The only reasons I can think of:
* Grains cause inflammation, which might compress/squeeze the gallbladder?
* Grains cause you to need more water, but I forget, so I'm dehydrated?
cori93437 says: eating grains in sensitive individuals can make your own body attack your pancreas. (Me: like your body can attack your own thyroid. Makes sense.)

Any other ideas? I'm curious
