Question: Nausea, Vommiting, Pain in upper stomach

I went for an ultrasound for my gallbladder but that test found no stones. I also went for a nuclear test and that test showed my gallbladder functioning at 80%. What else can cause these symptoms?

User avatar Hello -

You might well have gastritis or a gastric ulcer (the eventual result of prolonged gastritis). This can cause all the symptoms you're experiencing. An endoscopy would be appropriate at this point to rule gastritis (or ulcer) out or in.

Hope this helps. Please keep us updated.
