I have been diagnosed with having sludge in my gallbladder, but it is still functioning and it could be years until I might need it out. I also have two esophageal ulcers.  I have pain in my chest when I breath deeply and back and shoulder pain.  Somedays I have more pain than others.  The doctor suggested that the pains can be caused by the uclers.  Does anyone have any similar pains?  Also, the doctor told me that i should elimnate citrus fruits, tomatos, fatty foods, spicy foods, caffine, (i don't drink or use tobacco, so that's not a problem).  My second question is, do I need to eliminate all foods with citric acid in them? for example, grape jelly has citric acid in it? should I not have that?  The nutri-grain breakfest bars also have some citric acid in the jelly filling.  is it bad? or is just the high-citrus stuff bad?
 
Thanks

Hi - Welcome to Healing Well.

Ulcers can cause pain. Usually after having eaten.
Try to avoid high citrus food. Small amounts may be ok but you will soon find out what makes the pain worse. Alcohbol should be well avoided!

Take care
Victoria
