I have a relatively healthy diet and I like to exercise. Recently I’ve started having intense episodes of abdominal pain. Sometimes I feel as if I can’t breathe, and I even vomited a couple times. This has been happening for the last couple weeks. Could I have a kidney stone? Might I have gallstones? What does a gallbladder attack feel like?
