Pain in stomach when I eat, is it something serious?

Hello doctor. I have a pain in the middle of my stomach area. Gets worse after I eat and when I lye down. Pain also shoots back directly towards my back at that general area. Is it something serious. My sister also had the same problem and my grandmother too. Both had gallbladder problems. Do you think I may have the same problem. Thank you.

Based on the information you provided it looks like gallbladder stones. This is supported by your family history of gallbladder disease. (there is a genetic aspect to gallbladder disease making it hereditary) Consult your doctor. Further investigation is required such as a US. Removal may be necessary. Different treatments are available including medication, open surgery, laparoscopic surgery, endoscopic removal.
