I'm kind of worried about my health now as in the last 5 to 6 months I have lost almost 30kgs and I constantly get stomach pain, heartburn, and breathlessness. Especially when I exwrtuon myself. I'd take a long walk or exercise and then afterwardso the burning feeling in my stomach flares and I cannot breathe for all of ten minutes. I don't feel chest pain but the heartburn and breathlessness causes my right shoulder to hurt. Can body exertion make the gallbladder worse?

    Have you been diagnosed with gall stones? I would see you GP it could be Acid Reflux but any chest pain should be investigated Tamsyn  xxx

      Already had it checked and according to the doctor u have no heart problems. But this nasty burning sensation In my stomach carries all the way up to my chest causing such horrible heartburn and breathlessness that it feels unreal. It may be that I have a combination of acid reflux and gallstones I just don't know

      Tamsyn ask your doctor to send you for a scan to see if you do have gall stones he should have done that anyway, it could just be reflux and can be treated with tablets but insist you want further investigations love xxx

      The tablets don't work I've tried them and the doctor has booked an ultrasound for me. But I'm so confused. From what I've read I should be getting pain not feeling like my stomach is on fire
