Hi, forgive me in advance if this question has been asking repeatedly. Back in Dec I was returning from a holiday when I started having pain in my stomach that was so severe that I couldn't stand up straight. I almost asked my husband to take me to the hospital. I took some gas meds and it subsided. Ever since then I am having some digestive issues that have progressively gotten worse. After a meal (about and hour or two) My stomach starts to hurt. It's sometimes an ache but other times a sharp pain above the bellybutton. Then I become extremely bloated (looking pregnant), burping starts and indigestion. Sometimes gas meds work, but other times ( like the recent episode last night) doesn't. Sometimes the pain is so bad that the pain radiates up into my breast bone or into my back.. After a few hours it goes away or if I suffer until bedtime like that it is fine in the morning. I am also haivng some constipation issues. At first I thought I had acid reflux so I started to take Omeprazol. It seemed to work pretty good at first, but the problems returned. I even changed my diet to avoid gluten and wheat thinking it could be an intollerance but the problems remain. Last night a coworker of mine suggested that these are actually gallbladder attacks. Do these symptoms sound familiar?
