  • This could be muscle spasm form belly or chest wall muscle. Gallbladder issue is remotely possible, but one minute duration only twice in 3 days !! that's too short and infrequent for Gallbladder.
  • The duration and the frequency makes it very unlikely to be serious. I would not be concerned at this point.
