Can gallbladder problems arise from acid reflux and gerd?

What are symptoms of gallbladder trouble? And can this come from problems from acid reflux and gerd.? I m tired of going in and out e.r. and no testing with ultra sound done to my stomach they try and just give me pain meds and discharge me instead of finding out what is the problem

The gallbladder is causing symptoms similar to acid reflux and GERD, like hyperacidity, nausea, pain on the right side, etc.

Although it might be fastidious, acid reflux is causing repetitive symptoms. Hopefully, you are not having any serious problem like an ulcer.

The key solution is
- taking the right medications
- eating the right foods
- avoiding those foods/drinks that would aggravate the symptoms
- do not lay down immediately after eating
- have your meals regularly, avoid skipping them
- eat often and in small portions.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
