Does gallbladder dysfunction cause pain below the ribcage and acid reflux?

I had a clean colonoscopy and endoscopy about 4 months ago. But lately I’ve had attacks of burning pain on my right front side just below my rib cage that seem to come on quickly, get more severe, and last longer. This afternoon’s attack has left me also feeling some heartburn and still a slight burning pain. I take Omeprazole 40mg in the AM and Ranitidine 300mg at bedtime for reflux. So I’m wondering if I could have some problem with my gall bladder or (God forbid) my pancreas?

Hello, I have been diagnosed with a slow working gallbladder . Just 2 days ago I had a full feeling before dinner but ate anyway, fried chicken. About 12 30 am I woke with a feeling of food in my chest. I eventually vomited. Then the next day just felt lethargic and had the URQ pain, it was also sort of in the middle of my chest (behind my breastbone) along with heartburn. That lasted the whole day, and in the middle of the night I started diarrhea. That lasted most of that day. Diarrhea and vomiting have subsided. Still have some pain in my back in the ribcage (right side). If I see my Dr now that the worst is over what will happen?

I came down with something three days ago where I had body aches, fever and diarrhea. The body aches and fever have subsided after a day and now I am still having diarrhea... bright yellow, to pale yellow and just recently pinkish red (but, that could be because of red gatorade). I have lately (last few months) have had acid reflux issues and watery stools. Could I be dealing with gallbladder issues/IBS?
