Post Terrible pressue pain in center

I am having problems with intermittent pressue pain in the center of my upper abdomen (at the point where my breast bone ends) that extends into my back between my shoulder blades. I have terrible bloating, and I also have gas, burping,etc. I have IBS. My mother had gallstones, and I was wondering if this could be my gallbladder? It mostly happens in the morning, but hurts badly for about an hour or so, but as I said, the pressue pain extends into my back, I feel really bloated and feel as if I am going to throw up. Could this be gallbladder?

It sounds like your gallbladder. That is the kind of pain that some people have.

I always heard gallbladder pain is on the right side, can it also be in the middle, as well? Thanks.

It can also be the symptoms of gerd.Gall bladder disease can mimic the same symptoms as gerd. Sometimes doctors misdiagnose them because of the similarities.
