General Surgeon Dr. Mitesh R. Trivedi's  Response
Hello and welcome to healthcare magic forum.
Gall bladder stone does not have hereditary predisposition but the nature of pain you described, there are very high chances for you to have it.
Another differential diagnosis would be acute pancreatitis. To confirm the diagnosis you require to undergo abdominal ultra sonography and some blood investigations. After that consult a surgeon for further treatment.
Best wishes for your health.
