Excessive belching, some diarrhea -gallbladder problems?

I am a 23 year old female who is a smoker and has 2 kids but other wise has been very healthy up intel now. For a the last few months after I delivered my 2nd child I have had many symptoms that lead me to believe its my gallbladder causing them. First off I have excessive belching. It's all day every day no matter what I do. It's like i have gas stuck right where my breast bone is and I can not relive it. I pretty much have diarrhea at least 3 times a week. I have times where I feel nausea. And this pain in my right shoulder that gets worse when I move or breath. Tonight the belching is at it's worst I have not stopped since I woke up this morning. The pain in my shoulder is not to intense but enough I can't get conferrable in bed and would rather pace back in forth intel I feel better. On a scale of 1 to 10 it's about a 5. The pain is also I between my shoulder blades. At this moment I am so fed up I am contemplating going to the ER but have not because my insurance dose not take affect tell January. I was just wondering if this could be my gallbladder. Thank you for your responses in advance.

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. The symptoms of gastric discomfort with diarrhea are likely pointing towards a functional bowel disorder, smoking and recent pregnancies might have played a role. Gallbladder issue might be there to concomitantly. Only way to know is have a simple ultrasound scan. If stones or inflamed gall bladder shows up, its cholecystitis, if not then its functional.

I hope it helps.Please take good care of yourself and do as directed.I would advise to stay in touch with your health care provider as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor where a complete evaluation occurs. I will be here if you need me or have any more questions to ask, i would love to answer.

May the odds be ever in your favour.
