May need to see a surgeon if gallstones are causing discomforts. "epilim" may be valproate, and if so it can certainly affect the liver. See your doctor. ...Read more
Is it considered to be a normal symptom for a gastric ulcer and gallstone patient to have to sleep sitting up straight due to burning pain in stomach area if lying down. I have no acid reflux. I'm already on 40mg x 2 of ppi. This was after chocolate.

Chocolate can produce reflux. Since you're so symptomatic, I hope you're under the care of a gastroenter ...Read more

See your MD: "passing" a gallstone may have consequences such as developing acute pancreatitis, a painful, sometimes serious and occasional fatal inflammation of the pancreas.

Please Don't "Flush": The only home remedy that I know of is a "gallbladder flush": ingesting substances to cause significant contraction of the gb with the hope that the stones could be flushed into the intestines. Unfortunately, this is actually dangerous since the stones can get stuck in the bile duct & block the liver. Furthermore, even if successful, new ones will form. The best rx remains surgery. ...Read more
