Posted on Tue, 18 Mar 2014
Question: Hi, I woke up 3 days ago with a bloated feeling and slight nausea ( I wrote it off as eating to late and Going to sleep straight away) I also had reflux along with that, had diarrea but not the urgent kind, only drank water and snacked on crackers symptoms let up by end of day, the next day I started having stomach cramps not constant but one every few minutes, along with a bloated feeling,, drank water, Gatorade, ate soup assuming just a virus next day cramps were all but gone , still drank fluids and ate soup cramps were gone for several hours, but now have returned again about 8 hours after they quit? Again never a constant pain but hits and only last for guessing 5-10 seconds? Have some grumbling sound from stomach but seems only when relieving myself still diarrea but again not the urgent kind? Thanks 43 year old/male

Thanks, Several people told me could be my gallbladder or appendix but because no fever and pain is not constant nothing to worry about right?

Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: I don't as per your symptoms that gallbladder or appendix are involved as both conditions cause severe pain and site of pain is very specific and localised.
