I posted a question about my stomach problems yesterday. I won't repeat all the info, but I did get to the doctor yesterday and they put me back on a prescription for acid in my tummy. I don't often get heartburn or anything, but they said that's what it sounds like anyway. They said if that still doesn't help (I was on it for a month up until about 10 days ago) it could be gallstones or another gallbladder problem.
Later I found out that gallbladder problems/gallstones actually run on both sides of my dad's family. My stepmom also reminded me that my dad has gallbladder problems sometimes. I knew that, but I guess I had completely forgotten. He gets such bad stomach pain that he'll sometimes have to stay home from work for a week at a time! I wish I had known that before I went to the doctor yesterday - then they would probably have been quicker to get me an ultrasound rather than just throwing me back on some drugs.
Does anyone else have gallbladder problems? What do you do about it? Or, has anyone had gallstones before?

Yes, Had it very bad during my first pregnancy. I had an attack one night so bad that I almost fainted & sweat poured down my entire body. The next day the whites of my eyes turned yellow from the bile backing up. I had it removed Laproscopically soon after. I never knew how great I could feel after I had it removed. Not realizing it I suffered with the pain from it for years but the pregnancy made it so much worse.
