Generally speaking, gallstones are more commonly associated with right upper abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting (especially after a fatty meal).

The symptoms that you describe could also be due to multiple other causes, including diet, irritable bowel syndrome, pancreatic enzyme deficiency, as well as other potential causes.

Your doctor can assess for these (and other) potential health problems.
