Default gallbladder pain

I have been battling fatty liver disease for a number of years,

recent blood tests show reduce liver enzymes have come down, and I have managed to lose more weight, positive signs

but, I keep getting this right flank pain, is like a dull ache, and then at times, I get a sharp acute shooting pain which can run through to stomach

after MRI scan on liver, results show I have small, multiple cysts, but consultant said this could be hereditary

endoscopy inspection down throat showed slight stomach irritation, but nothing else

the pain has got worse, more frequent, is almost there all the time now,

I was in emergency room at hospital on Monday, nearly passed out at work, sweaty , blood was drained from face (as described by colleagues), tight chest, increased pulse,

ECG and blood pressure tests were ok at the time the paramedic took them, some 45 minutes after my first symptoms, first aider had settled me down fair bit by the time he arrived,

bloods at hospital showed a viral infection, ( I do not have hepatitis),

blood sugar was ok,

I have been feeling worse recently, more light headiness, pains in chest

I have also developed GERD, which may explain the chest pains too, they are brief, but shooting from middle of chest to left hand side,

think some of this could be vagus nerve stimulation (relating to the GERD), I had large polyp taken out of colon last December, and ever since I have been not feeling that well,

this right flank pain is becoming more debilitating, and obstructive to my daily life,

last night I had another attack, feeling faint, sick, right side pain

supplements, I have been taking olive leaf extract, and some oregano oil (not that often thought with this one)

I am going to push for a HIDA scan

I have 3 questions :

1. have you had similar symptoms, and if so was it your gallbladder

2. how did you resolve your gallbladder pain

3. is olive leaf extract, oil of oregano safe for liver/gallbladder

thanks in advance
