A 43-year-old male asked:

Heartburn: This can be secondary to reflux, however burning sensation along spine is not typical of reflux. Given difficulty swallowing this can be either case of reflux, candida, and/or narrowing of esophagus. Given your age above 40 and difficulty swallowing (dysphasia) which is one of alarm signs, endoscopy is recommended to rule out complication of reflux and to screen for barrets(per malignant condition.

Gallbladder pregnant: Gallbladder problems during pregnancy are very common. Usually we do not recommend elective(not urgent) surgery during pregnancy. If symptoms are tolerable one would wait until after delivery to perform surgery. However if symptoms are severe or one develops complication from gallbladder disease(pancreatitis, cholangitis or cholecystitis) then the best time to perform surgery is 2nd trimester.

Abdominal pain: Abd pain radiating to back may be sign of pancreatic pathology or gallbladder problem. I would start with ultrasound and blood work for liver and pancreas. You may also need endoscopy as this may be sign of duodenal ulcer.
