Hi Gary! I had a excruiating evening and night about a year and a half ago with lots of pain on the right side, radiating to my back. I sat in my recliner, holding my side, sweating and ended up going to the ER the next day. They along with me thought it was probably gallbladder, but since the US of the gb was neg. they sent me home. :( Long story shortened...it turned out that after complaining more, I had a HIDA scan as well and found my gb at about 18%, and surgery was scheduled. The pathology report came back diseased, non working gb with stones.
I'm not sure what this has to do with GERD, but that first endoscopy that I had, is when they discovered the GERD and they were just checking for other things that might cause this right sided pain, like ulcers.
I hope you are doing well now!?
Hugs, Teri :)
