So I have been having attacks of gallbladder pain after dinner. I have already gotten myself signed up for an ultrasound on thursday. I was looking around and saw a referance to using eneric coated peppermint oil capsuls during an attack. I do have a dose but I have to mainsream herbal references for nurses. One says not to use peppermin oil but does not state why, another such reference does not even mention this use.

Have any of you guys used this? What results did you have? and does anyone know why it would be a bad idea? I would like to try it because I am fairly sure that if I try a pain pill I will only end up throwing up something I haven't done yet with this

I have spent today eating almost no fat at all and haven't had an attack (first time in 4-5 days) Thanks in advance...
