Same issue her for almost year and no stone and had endoscopy done of stomach and upper intestine and nothing. I was told just one of those unexplainable discomfort and just had to learn to deal with it. Said to take laxative and see if that helps. The last guy that told me I had a hard piece of poo made me lose my ovary. I have extreme heartburn and nausea. Doing pregnancy test to rule that out, but wonder if gallbladder related. 4 close female relatives have had theirs out. Really worried here about all scenarios. What if pregnant and because of space it finally is determined need gallbladder needs out?

Hi Anonymous

Thanks for your post! I'm sorry you are in so much pain.

Have you confirmed that you have gall stones or some kind of gall bladder condition?

If not, it could be something other than your gall bladder...like your colon (the upper end) or even an ulcer. Have you done further testing to see if it's not something gallbladder related?
