I have been having really bad chest pains and burning pains all under my ribs, mostly in the middle but also left and right. I thought it may be an ulcer or gastritis as I do have GERD. Today I was talking to a friend who has similar symptoms and she said after an ultrasound they have found it to be her gall bladder. I appear to have similar problems but also pain on left as well as right, which is why I am loath to say it is gall bladder as that is right side. The skin under ribs is agony to touch and the GP said that you can get inflammation in your fat cells so as I am bit overweight it could be that, although I cannot find anything about that on Google. I have also noticed the pains come on straight after food, especially sweet stuff like chocolate. My mum had her gall bladder removed, not sure if that is connected. So my questions are, can you have gall bladder pains on left side as well as right and when you have flare up is the skin from under ribs to belly button and all across midriff really tender and sore. Thanks
