User avatar Hi sonysick,
Many conditions may cause gastrointestinal symptoms. For example,Gerd may cause irritation, heartburn, reflux, chest pain and a generally uncomfortable feeling. A dysfunctional gallbladder would also cause stomach upset, chest pain, upper abdominal and back pain with symptoms typically worsening after a fatty meal. It would be impossible to determine the actual causative factors of your symptoms without an evaluation by a physician. Some diagnostic studies, such as a HIDA scan to evaluate gallbladder dysfunction, and lab work to identify if any abnormalities are present would be suggested.
Best wishes.
