Gallstones, : Gallstones, which are found in the gallbladder can cause obstruction and inflammation. Typically, the pain is usually very severe, located in the right upper quadrant, and worse after a fatty meal. The symptoms your wife described sound more like acid reflux or even an ulcer. Regardless, she should follow up with her doctor for a complete evaluation and treatment as deemed necessary.
