You mentioned in your message about the esophagus and how it felt, and I know why mine feels this way, because of my acid reflux. Do you or are you bothered with indigestion now? I believe that gallbladder problems and acid reflux problems work side by side, and the symtoms are about the same, except, now I limit my foods so that I am not bothered with this problem too much. I take a Nexium in the morning, but it will not help me, if I eat greasy foods or spicy foods, etc. It’s hard staying away from these foods but I have had to adjust, because of the discomfort they bring. Now, I have to eat no fat foods. I eat baked potatoes, baked chicken, green beans, garden peas, and rice, and that’s about it. These foods are o.k. and do not cause me pain. I hope you find some help with your question.You are not alone with the way you feel. I wish you well.
