Gallstones: Can commonly be a cause of gallbladder irritation or inflammation (cholecystitis) resulting in upper abdominal bloating or pressure discomfort, nausea ; sometimes vomiting. Often gets worse after eating fatty foods. See a general surgeon for evaluation as you may benefit from gallbladder surgery. If this is an OB ultrasound during a pregnancy, then ask your OB doctor for instructions first.
