Another common digestive problem is gallstones. Having had friends and family members who have had gallstones, I have heard how extremely painful they are. Gallstones have two main options for treatment: passing the gallstone and having the gallstone broken down by laser. I have never known anyone who has had to have his or her gallstone treated by laser; all of them passed it. From what I have been told, passing a gallstone is one of the most painful things they have ever done.

The most common digestive problem is acid reflux.  Acid reflux is when acid goes into the person's throat and you get heartburn.  The most common advice is a change in diet to avoid acidic foods, and an antacid.
