Sorry for all the questions but how long does the pain last?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No much. For at least 2hrs.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK most likely this is a gall bladder problem with gall stones. It would take an ultrasound or a ct scan of the abdomen to check for that and if that's the case you probably will need your gall bladder removed before it causes real problems like pancreatitis.
Irritable bowel syndrome would be the other possibility and that can be treated with medications like Levsin or Bentyl
Let me know if you need more information please

Can herpetitis b cause that or worms or piles?

Are You in London or America?

America.
Neither hepatitis B nor worms cause gallstones or irritable bowel syndrome

Are You very positive it's gallstones?
There are quality herbs for gallstones without any operation.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I'm about 98% sure but it would take a scan to make the diagnosis
Apple cider vinegar, milk thistle and castor oil can help with gallstone problems
