911Doctor : Hello... It appears that you are offline so I will answer this in Q and A format and you can then accept my answer or ask more questions.
911Doctor : This doesn't sound like your heart but the only way to be sure is to have a heart evaluation done... There is no "standard story" for heart pain...
911Doctor : More likely you nay have a problem with you gallbladder... Especially the discomfort after eating and drinking makes me think you really need to ge you gall bladder looked at and the first step here is an ultrasound of the gallbladder.
911Doctor : I hope this helps.
911Doctor : Best

hi i didnt say that i had heart pain i dont have any pain at all. Do you think that this is my gall bladder
Expert:  911Doctor replied 6 years ago.
Discomfort, pressure... anything like that anywhere near the central chest or upper abdomen is often from the heart. Nevertheless, yes, I think your gall-bladder is a likely cause and I would mention it to your physician. Here is some information that may help you....

also to be considered are reflux (heartburn), stomach ulcers, and a variety of other problems with the digestive system. however, based on your story, i would start by looking at your gall bladder. i hope this helps you.
