Child has stomach pain after eating. Given acid reflux medicine. Family history of gall bladder removal

My 13 year old daughter has been complaining the last few days that her stomach hurts everytime after she eats. It doesn t make a difference what or how much she eats. I gave her some acid reflux medicine today to see if that made any difference. Is she too young to have gallbladder problems, as it seems most women in my family have had theirs removed. Thanks you in advance dor any advice.

i can understand your anxiety but at this age common cause for stomache pain will be worm infestation also ..
if antacid has given relief to your child , then just try to modify her diet with less spices and more of bland diet and also more fruits and liquids to avoid further gastritis in future,,make sure she eats at regular timings .. and give your child one wormectal ie albendazole 400 mg tab to combat worm infestation too..
and coming to gall bladder problems ..of course it has family predisposition but dont get tensed and modifying the diet also reduces the chances of gall bladder problem to great extent ..
at this age probability is very less unless your diet is full of spices and oily food,,
so take good diet and avoid the problem..all the best ..
