Having abdominal bloating. Took prilosec. Gets tender while taking deep breath. What should I do?

I am having discomfort from abdominal bloating , so much so that it was difficult to eat. I have had it since thursday and started taking prilosec thinking it was indigestion . It has gotten much better than it was but I still have the upper abdominal bloating and it is tender when I push on it or take really deep breaths . Should I just keep taking the prilosec since it is working or do I truly need to go in to see a doctor (currently don t have one).

hello dear
bloating,indigestion, upper abdominal pain which increases on deep respiration go in favour of gall bladder disease (probably inflammation of gallbladder -CHOLECYSTITIS). hence you need to under go ultrasound examination, liver fuction tests and leucocyte counts. once it is confirmed it is gallbladder disease you may need antibiotics, analgesic and later stage laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
if it is not related to gallbladder you need not worry.
take care
