User avatar I wonder if you might have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or a bowel obstruction, but gall bladder problems could conceivably have such symptoms as well. You would need to see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis since there are so many possible causes of abdominal distress such as you describe.

Good luck
