Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. The pain is unlikely to be due to a disease of the gall bladder.
The common causes of the pain on the left side of stomach are pain of acute gastritis which is usually due to increased production of acid & could be precipitated by excessive consumption of tea, coffee or alcohol.
It could be a peptic ulcer pain also if itâs relieved by consuming milk etc. The pain of acute pancreatitis also usually presents on the left side of the stomach and is confirmed by doing a CT scan or blood tests like serum amylase & lipase.
Thereâs also a possibility of it being due to a stone in the kidney and an ultrasound can be done for the confirmation of the same. Iâll suggest consulting a physician/surgeon and getting yourself examined as itâs extremely difficult to make an online diagnosis without a physical examination. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
