I experience the SAME exact thing. I suddenly get severe pain in my right abdomen area - where the gall bladder is located - followed by hives that appear on my stomach, back, and throat. First time it happened I was in so much pain I went into the ER and they said it was Hepatitis B which later came back as negative...ultimately only running up my hospital bill.
I have noticed a couple of things: (1) It seems to happen after I eat, smell, or am around chocolate. (2) The last time it happened, I had a pretty full stomach and was seated in a way that my stomach was crunched together and man - the pain suddenly hit hard, it was horrible.
I would LOVE to know if anybody has advice, or similar experiences and when it seems to occur to them. I just know that the one symptom that always occurs is the hives after the pain, which to me, is somewhat of a distinctive symptom when trying to figure out what the heck happens to me.
