Unhappy Gall bladder discomfort

Lately I've had these symptoms following a meal - pain or uneasiness in my upper right side, gas/belching, nausea, feeling that I may vomit. Does it run in families? Please help!

Re: Gall bladder discomfort

It certainly can. See about an ultrasound for stones/sludge/thickening. If that's negative, you should have a HIDA Scan for function. Generally speaking, below 35% and above 75% are considered non functioning.
