I have never had a gallstone or known someone with one before so I'm not entirely sure what to expect.
Last night my boyfriend and I ate pizza and about an hour and a half later I was laying down getting ready for bed and felt a horrible stabbing pain in my upper right chest just behind my ribcage. The only position that brought any relief to the pain was standing up, but still it hurt every time I inhaled. I was burping a lot and thought maybe it was just gas, but the pain lasted well into the morning hours before I finally took some sleeping meds.
There is no pain this morning but am still gassy and bloated and have a nasty taste in my throat that I think is bile. I had cereal and milk for breakfast and went to the gym but the pain hasn't returned.
Do gallstones ever behave like this? Or is the pain consistent? Also if it comes back should I be concerned enough to go to the ER?
