It is hard to diagnose the real problem give the set of symptoms and conditions you are experiencing. You may be experiencing problems with the gallbladder, but these symptoms can also indicate trouble with the stomach or duodenum. You can request an abdominal ultrasound to exclude gallbladder stones. Then, a gastroscopy can reveal possible problems in the stomach and duodenum, if needed. You can consult an internist for an expert opinion.
