I'm going out of my mind. I have been experiencing upper abdominal pain for a while. Went to the doctor and because of my GERDS and history of gastric inflamation, he put me back on Omemperazole. It was working and I was on a very bland diet but then last week I ate a salad with grilled chicken and the next day I began feeling upper right abdominal throbbing. Years ago, I had my gallbladder removed. I am wondering if the salad triggered the throbbing, but i'm so confused as to why I would be having pain there. Could my GERDS be giving me those pains? I'm going to see my doctor again but I feel like I'm complaining too much! Is anyone else having or had these problems. I thought I knew a lot about my GERDS, but I am constantly finding new things out.

Welcome to Healing Well. I too have this phantom pain sometimes. Mine was removed over 8 years ago. Haven't quite figured out what food causes it yet.

Take care,

dear tisabeth,
  My daughter had same gallbladder phantom pain along with many other side effects for months.  She missed so many days of school and 3 gastros were clueless.  Bottomline which i hope helps you, is that the medication dexilant which is another drug like the drug you are taking caused all the chest, gallbladder or pancreatitis pains.  No place was this a warning for the drug, but I found other sights with people with the same horrible symtoms.  Stop the prescription drugs and try a probiotic.  I give my daughter Ultimate Flora by RenewLife.  She still has gerd but the horrible pains are gone and seems better.  She cant eat any salad dressing without getting reflux.  Hope this helps.  good luck.
