    Time to see your doctor. You may be experiencing gallbladder disease. The gallbladder is located in the right upper part of the abdomen, near the liver. A simple blood test and maybe an ultrasound can diagnose gallbladder inflammation. Many women your age have had their gallbladders removed. But, do not wait too long to have it checked because like the appendix the gallbladder can rupture and that is when things get complicated.

    Debster,

    I am a retired LPN due to my disabiling chronic pain. Your symptoms, to me, sound typical of a diseased gallbladder. Surely by these symptoms and as time as marched on since this posting, I pray this has been detected.
