Pain in the right upper quadrant can represent gallstones, but generalized pain is unlikely to represent that. Antacids such as tums, (calcium carbonate) or medicine to decrease stomach acid such as Prilosec (over the counter), may be helpful. If you had worsening or new symptoms, vomiting, fever, then it would be reasonable to consult your physician. ...Read more

Garlic is rich in Frutans and some people are sensitive to this. Keep a food diary and ask if your foods have garlic, garlic salt, garlic powder etc in them. Good luck. ...Read more
