From this study (2 weeks ago):
At first I thought this was gas/indigestion and treated it as such, but nothing would change. I rarely eat fried foods, and have extremely good cholesterol labs. The last attack was so painful I could not catch my breath and I could not walk on my own. I did not have a fever, but I thought somehow my appendix ruptured and was poisoning my stomach because I just wanted to pass out. I was shocked to learn I had gallstones and an enlarged gallbladder. I've had these symptoms for over 6 or 7 years. I was pregnant with twins in 2007, and would blame the twins for getting "too high" into my ribs when I had this pain with them, but I bet it was my gallbladder flaring up, even then. At that time, I would have been on Zoloft for 4 years.

I've always had the Simian Crease and Epilepsy. Do they correlate to a specific diagnosis?
Anonymous on Jun, 7, 2014:
No, there is no physical correlation of epilepsy nor any genetic, neurological or physical abnormality related to someone being born with one Simian Crease on one hand or two Simian Creases on each hand.
Simian Creases are a heritable typically gender specific anomaly. All this means is that if you have one or two Simian creases, that you were born with the Simian Crease, in most cases, you inherited it from your same gender parent's line and that it is uncommon, period.
Long ago Simian Creases were seen as a possible indicator or "marker" of Down's Syndrome. However not all Down's Syndrome babies were found to have a Simian Crease. One estimate is that approximately 60% of infants born with Down's Syndrome are found to also have a Simian Crease.
Not all affected by Down's Syndrome or related genetic disorders, have a Simian Crease.
Anthropological studies have found clusters of Simian Creases worldwide and most groups were found to have inherited the Simian Crease(s) from one parent of the same gender in that parent's family line.
It is extremely rare to find Simian Creases in both parental lines of one person's family tree.
Again, Simian Crease(s) are unrelated to any genetic, physical, neurological or psychological disorders, illnesses or weaknesses.
