    You can find a list of causes of these symptoms in the following articles :

    There is no way of saying for sure what is causing this in your case. You should speak to your doctor about. Yes, gallbladder problems and ulcers could cause these symptoms but it would not be too the extent that you mention.

    Being a diabetic, there are a host of complications that can arise which may cause these symptoms. One of these is a condition known as gastroparesis where the movement of food through the stomach and small intestine is hampered due to nerve damage as a result of diabetes (diabetic neuropathy).

    This just one possibility but there are many others and this is why proper investigation by your doctor or a gastroenterologist is necessary.
