Feels bloated. Having pain in back, heartburn, acidity taste in throat. Could it be gallbladder?

I ve been very bloated in abdomen area & dull pain in upper middle, left side & middle of back. The bloating makes me have heartburn sometimes, the acidy taste in my throat. I have some gas, especially after eating or drinking. Could it be gallbladder or what is going on? I m very uncomfortable & it seems to get worse throughout the day.

hi,taking your symptoms into account it seems you are suffering with one of the following-
1.most probably it could be peptic occurs due degradation of protective mucus layer with acid. could be chronic pancreatitis, especially if you are an alcoholic. could be what we call "mesenteric insufficiency" which is similar to coronary insufficiency where transient ischaemia occurs due insufficient blood supply to intestines when demand increases.
4.lastly and most dangerous of all it could be gastric carcinoma.

Try having pantaprazole tablets.If it relieves symptoms then peptic ulcer can almost be confirmed. and don't forget to see a gastroenterologist later! hope it helps. take care! :)
