    I had a similar problem last week, a terribly abdominal pain that left me almost doubled over for several hours before throwing up yellow bile.  I went to the doctors the next day was warned it could either be gall stones or appendicitis.

     

    I went for an ultrasound 3 days later and gall stones and an inflammed gall bladder have been confirmed.  I am now waiting to sess a specialist to arrange for an operation to remove my gall bladder.

     

    In the interim the doctor has prescribed me with omperazol (to reduce acid stomach) and cocodamol for pain and advised to avoid any fat intake to prevent re-occurence.

     

    Hope this helps - I thought it was just food poisoning and wouldn't have gone to the doctor's if my husband hadn't nagged!
