Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

I would advise you to rush to the ER as soon as possible;especially since you have unbearable pain and you can't cough or move because of the pain.It would be best to rule out perforation peritonitis which is an emergency. Since you have a history of gall stones, it could have led to inflammation of the gall bladder, which could have led to perforation and peritonitis.

Any other symptoms like, fever, constipation, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension etc.

Get well soon :)
