does this sound like a gallbladder problem?

I have had issues with right side discomfort for about 5 years now.

It started as a feeling of tingling/discomfort on my right flank. I had almost constant watery stool for about 4 years. This has changed in the last year or so to seemingly normal.
About 3 years ago I started getting a feeling like an airbubble behind my lowest rib on the right side. This has changed now into a constant feeling like I have something pressing into my lowest rib.
Now I have in the last 2 years having a crampy pain behind my ribs.
in the last year I have started getting a feeling like the whole inside of my right ribcage hurts. This occurrs when I do a lot of physical activity, specifically involving upper body or twisting of the torso. I have also had pain discomfort right infront of the bone in my hip. Also occasional pain/discomfort in my right testicle. At times it feels like I am sitting on it or something.
now in the last week I have been unable to get a good night sleep due to discomfort and pain in my right side. 3 nights in a row I have woken up with pain and urgen need to go to the bathroom.

I am pretty sure it is my gallbladder. I am male 40 with a family history of gallbladder issues. Does any of this sound like something other than a gallbladder?

Please go and see a doctor. Ultrasound test can show if you have gall bladder stones. The doctor may recommend other tests to confirm issues related to gall bladder like thickening walls etc. Do not wait to see your doctor - 3-4 years living with pain is too long.
