did they check your gall bladder?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
well first one gave me peppermint that didnt help second one said pepto bismal or maalox he thought it was from acid reflux which i do get but that didnt work either 3rd one said endoscopy but wasnt sure if anything was wrong but then found redness in stomach and now ordered a cat scan

no did not check gall bladder
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 11 months ago.

I think your gall bladder is the likely culprit

women in their 40s are highest risk for this
