    Gallbladder pain?
    alvarado10 posted:
    For nearly 3 weeks i been having pain in my gallbladder area, upper aand lower back, and upper stomach pain. I went to the ER less than two weeks ago and had a negative ultrasound and my bloodwork was normal. I was diagnosed with GERD two years ago.

    I am a 30 year old male and a bit overweight. My GI doctor ordered a HIDA scan but I had one 1 1/2 years ago which also was negative. I also had a CT scan and upper endoscopy less then 2 years ago, all negative.

    My GI doctor thinks its just my GERD and a back muscle sprain due to not strenching before workouts. Its possible my gallbladder isn't working correcting but I also have doubts this is the case since I had similar pain when I was first diagnosed with GERD.

    Are there are other possibilities for gallbladder type pain?
