See below: Gallstones and stomach ulcers can cause similar symptoms of indigestion & upper abdominal pain. Ulcers are commonly diagnosed by endoscopy and treated with antacid medications and antibiotics if you have h. Pylori. Gallstones are often treated by surgery, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, to remove your gallbladder and gallstones.
