I read that a way to reduce the pain of a gallbladder attack was to eat a raw cucumber. In despiration one day, I ate an entire cucumber, and I have to admit that the pain was reduced remarkably. So that also made me feel I was on the right track with diagnosing this problem. I have no medical insurance and cannot afford expensive medical tests.

These are all just things that I have read, not medical facts, but after reading it, I was relieved to believe that it is just most likely a gallbladder acting up, and not something more serious.
