I only SUSPECT that I have gallbladder problems. I work contract labor so I have no insurance. I am looking for some information to verify that the problems is gallbladder related then I will make a decision as to what action I take. I am a 43 year old female, 5'5 1/2" and am about 30 lbs overweight. I have moderate to severe discomfort on the right side of my upper abdomen in the vacinity of the liver, pancreas & gallbladder. The discomfort is not always there, but once there has been an "attack", the area is very tender. I have not connected this to the ingestion of strictly fatty foods. I do have a great deal of acid reflux/indigestion at night. I have no fever, urine is normal color as is the stool. Does this sound as though it is a gallbladder or liver problem? Thanks in advance for your response. Jonni
