Thank you for your question.
Have you had a workup including an ultrasound of the gallbladder?
I have not had an ultrasound of the gallbladder.
Gallbladder pain can just be symptomatic as nausea after eating, or epigastric (upper middle pain) or pain in the right upper quadrant. Many patients are given antacids and treated for GERd and later found to have gallstones.
Also, you may need a test done called H. Pylori to see if you have gasritis caused by this bacteria.
So you will need to see a physician and get a workup done.
Also, you did not mention if you have a heart condition or not. Sometimes nausea after eating is the only symtpom of a cardiac problem.
Hope this he;os. Please click accept if you are satisfied.
A heart attack. So you need to have an EKG, but you also need the other tests I have mentioned.
If those are negative, you may in fact, have GERD or a hiatal hernia.
I read your feedback. Gaviscon is an over the counter antacid. Once I explained all the causes of the nausea and what you should really do about it, I did not think discussing Gaviscon was going to add to the discussion.
If the nausea is from your gallbladder, it does not matter what you take, as the gallbladder would have to come out.
If it is your heart, the antacid will only mask the symptoms.
If it is H.Pylori or a hiatal hernia, the antacid will bring temporary relief. You would need different more effective medication.
So, I hope I have addressed the medication question you had.
