    years ago i had horrible debilitating bloating and burning pain. I had gallstones. Had gallbladder removed. What a relief. The interesting thing is I hear gallbladder surgery come up quite a bit in people w/ cfs. Perhaps there's a link in some way to the onset of cfs. Reaction to the anesthesia? Problems w/ bile? creates a glitch in function of our body?
    Just a thought.

    Anyhow , years later and now w/ CFS i have intense stomach pain again. Similar feeling to when i had the gallbladder prob but not as intense. I had an upper endoscopy and all looked ok. Weird.

    I also have bloating real bad. I dont know why. Yeast maybe? I dont know.

    But definitely bloating is common in many w/ cfs.

    I'm 17 right now and I have been having extreme pain in my right side below my rib cage. When I was 15 I went to the E.R after being sick for months and the doctor said I had an ulcer on my galbladder but did not do anything about it. I have had stomach issues for a few years now and always waved it off as the ulcer. but I also have acid reflux and my dr finally gave my medicine for it last month after it became impossible for me to eat without getting hiccups. The other night I was laying in my bed playing a game when suddenly I had a sharp pain in my stomach and decided to sit up and take a stomach pill I got up and as soon as I stood I got extreme sharp pains through my entire stomach that shot into my chest and instantly gave me a headache. I have severe asthma so I hurried and grabbed my inhaler and took my stomach pill before I collapsed on my bed holding my breathe waiting for the pain to stop I'm currently at my dads so I hurried to call my mom scared of what had jut happened and then I have been having back pain right behind where I'm having it in the front of my stomach it completely wraps around my side I have been bloated for the past month and I gained 10 pounds in a 2 week timeframe I think it's my galbladder because a lot of people into family have had it removed my mom is coming to get me the day after 2mrow so it will be my 4th day in pain before I get to go home. Either way if its my ulcer on or behind my galbladder I just want the pain to stop:( I'm a 17 year old girl and its ruining my life.

    Mirissa, This an old thread so it may go unnoticed. However I am sorry to hear you are in so much acute pain. If the doctor gave you acid reduction medication it should be a drug called Omeprazole or similar. This must be taken every day not just when you have pain. If you are taking the drug daily and you still have sharp painful bouts then it may not be your stomach. Acid reflux can also be the result of gallbladder dysfunction.

    Gall bladder pain can be very startling and seem like your heart or stomach and does tend to wrap around your right side. You do need to get back to your doctor for an ultrasound of your gall bladder or a scope of your stomach.
