In brief: I agree

Most of your symptoms are consistent with gb attack however they can be reproduced by other causes such as gastric reflux irritable bowel syndrome.
You probably require further evaluation. You can initially try to reduce fat intake.

In brief: Gallbladder problem?

Gb pain is most often upper right abdomen, occasionally referred to right shoulder. Avoid fried, fatty, greasy foods & ones high in cholesterol like eggs.
Make appt with fp or general surgeon who does many laparoscopic cholecystectomies (small incision, quicker recovery time—unless complications). Doc may advise watchful waiting or surgery before it becomes necessary.
