Heartburn caused by gallbladder???
Hi James

My aunt in Brazil was suffering from terrible heartburn/reflux. She went to a doctor who told her he thought it was her gallbladder.

They checked the gallbladder and it was full of stones.

Gallbladder removed, reflux gone.

How can that be?

I would like to know the answer to this too as I have gallstones and more and more heartburn but I am trying to keep my gallbladder.

Gallstones or any gallbladder disease do not cause heartburn. What happens is that gallbladder attack pain can spread up in to the chest giving the same feeling as a bad case of acid reflux. When they took out her gallbladder the gallbladder attack pain stopped.
