Gallbladder Pain

What does gallbladder pain feel like? Symptoms of gallbladder pain are categorized into acute and chronic.

Gallbladder Pain Symptoms

Acute symptoms are those that accompany a gallbladder attack and are characterized by sharp, stabbing pain in the upper right side of the abdomen, nausea, vomiting and possible fever and chills. Chronic symptoms are frequent dull pain in the same area, upper right side of the abdomen sometimes accompanied by nausea, gas and bloating and possibly burping.

Gallbladder Pain Location

Gallbladder Pain LocationWhere gallbladder pain is felt varies with each individual person, but the most typical symptom of gallbladder pain is experienced directly over the gallbladder itself, which is tucked under the liver, just protruding below the rib cage on the right side of the abdomen. Gallbladder pain can refer into the back by pressing on nerves. Again, this can vary from pain at the bottom tip of the right shoulder blade, between the shoulder blades, or extend up into the top of the shoulder (less frequent). Gallbladder pain can also be felt mid-center, above the stomach and below the ribs.


Gallbladder Pain Relief

When gallbladder pain is severe, the quickest route to relief is through resorting to a liquid diet of vegetable juices, The Beet Recipe and blended Green Soup. Diet and supplements work together to bring the fastest relief from gallbladder pain. These recipes are all to be found in our 30 Day Gallbladder Solution along with supplements for relief of gallbladder pain. OPA, for example, is a liquid form of oral phosphoric acid that can be helpful for relieving the pain of a gallbladder attack as well as milder pain.

If no fever is present, applying heat over the gallbladder may also bring temporary relief from gall bladder spasm by relaxing the muscles of the gallbladder.

Gallbladder Massage for Pain Relief

How to use massage for immediate gallbladder pain relief:
Place 3 fingers over the gallbladder on the right side of the upper abdomen and apply gentle pressure. Hold for 3-5 minutes. Then move to other areas of pain, for example, the mid-center. Again apply gentle pressure with 3 fingers. Then move to a point just to the right of and up from the navel on the right hand side. Find a point that is sensitive to pressure and massage in a circular motion, applying medium pressure. This is the sphincter of Oddi, the muscle that contracts and releases to hold or allow the passage of bile from the common bile duct into the small intestine.


Gallbladder Treatment




When the gallbladder is not inflamed or tender, a massage with a good amount of pressure over both the gallbladder and liver can help to move the bile.

Gallstones Symptoms

Symptoms of gallstones vary depending on their size and location. Gallstones, large or small, in the gallbladder are sometimes asymptomatic, meaning you may never feel them at all. It is usually once they are on the move that they cause pain often in the form of a gallbladder attack.

Inflamed Gallbladder Symptoms


A gallstone that gets stuck in the neck of the gallbladder, or in the cystic duct just beyond the neck, will often cause cholecystitis or inflammation of the gallbladder. Inflamed gallbladder symptoms include right-sided abdominal pain that hurts when bending or when pressed and could cause chills and fever. Sometimes the gallbladder will go into a spasm of continuous contraction which enhances the right-sided pain.

Bile Duct Stone

When a stone gets stuck in the common bile duct, the bile can back up into the liver causing liver enzymes to rise and sometimes jaundice or yellowing of the skin. This is a serious condition requiring immediate medical attention.

Bile Duct Stones Symptoms

  • Jaundice (yellowish skin)
  • Dark urine
  • Chalky, whitish stools
  • Rapid heartbeat and abrupt blood pressure drop







Gallstones in the Gallbladder and a Bile Duct Stone







Gallbladder Pancreatitis or Symptoms of Pancreatic Duct Obstruction

The common bile duct is joined by the pancreatic duct just before it empties its bile into the small intestine at the sphincter of Oddi. When a stone gets stuck at the junction of the common bile duct and the pancreatic duct, the obstructing stone causes a backup of both bile and pancreatic enzymes. As the pancreatic enzymes back up into the pancreas, they cause inflammation or pancreatitis. Abdominal pain will be present and possibly more central vs right-sided gallbladder pain. An acute pancreatitis often resolves itself over a few days as the stone moves, but it can also be very serious and even life threatening. Medical intervention is advised. This condition is usually confirmed with a blood test.

Symptoms of Acute Pancreatitis or Inflamed Pancreas

Pancreatitis Symptoms

  • Pain in the stomach area - usually severe
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Increase in blood pressure
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased pain immediately after eating
  • Bloating and possible tender stomach area or upper left side
  • Fatigue
  • Fainting



Gallbladder Infection Symptoms

Gallbladder infection symptoms result when the bile duct gets infected, this is known as cholangitis. Gall bladder infection symptoms can include any or all of the following:

  • fever
  • chills
  • nausea and vomiting,
  • severe pain in the upper right abdomen

Gallbladder Cancer

Malignant cells within the gallbladder tissues is rare. In 2014 about 10,650 new cases diagnosed: 4,960 in men and 5,690 in women. In this same year about 3,630 deaths from these cancers: 1,610 in men and 2,020 in women. Survival rates of gallbladder cancer are available based on advancement of the disease when treated.

Gallbladder Cancer Symptoms

Signs of gallbladder cancer may include any or all of the following:

  • Jaundice - yellowing of eyes and skin
  • Upper right abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Itching
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss

Symptoms of Gallbladder Cancer Explained

Gallbladder Cancer

The symptoms above are similar with gallbladder symptoms in general and therefore not exclusive to cancer. In fact, there are rarely any symptoms with gallbladder cancer early on. Even weight loss often accompanies gallbladder symptoms since the reactions to food often create a fear of eating. In fact, gallbladder cancer is often only discovered when the gallbladder is removed for other causes such as gallstones. Otherwise, gallbladder cancer is often quite advanced by the time it is diagnosed. Statistics are 1 in 5 are caught before it spreads.


Gallbladder Cancer Treatment

So long as the cancer is contained within the gallbladder itself, removing the gallbladder and affected tissues in bile ducts is the standard treatment. Once containment has been breached and it has spread to surrounding tissues, your physicians will decide whether surgery is still possible but the prognosis is not good.


Gallbladder Disease

What caused or is causing the lack of fat digestion could be of various origin. A stone could be blocking the bile flow. The gallbladder could be distended due to stones or inflammation. There could be infection in the gallbladder causing tenderness or the tenderness could simply be due to stasis of bile causing distention. The gallbladder could be not emptying fully (biliary dyskinesia) and lack of bile causes improper fat digestion. Or the problem could start in the liver with stasis of bile there and the formation of sludge or tiny calculi slowing bile flow and causing it to thicken. Constipation and weight gain can also be symptoms of gallbladder problems.

Gallbladder Disease Symptoms

Symptoms of gallbladder disease may include any or all of the following:

  • Pain or tenderness under the rib cage on the right side
  • Pain between shoulder blades
  • Stools light or chalky colored
  • Fatty stools
  • Indigestion after eating, especially fatty or greasy foods
  • Feeling of fullness or food not digesting
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Burping or belching
  • Diarrhea (or alternating from soft to watery)
  • Headache over eyes, especially right
  • Bitter fluid comes up after eating
  • Constipation or frequent use of laxatives

Gallbladder Problems

Gallbladder problems are more common than you may think. Gallstones affect more than 25 million Americans with 1 million new cases diagnosed annually, according to the American Gastroenterological Association. And there are other things that go wrong with the gallbladder besides just gallstones.

Symptoms of Gallbladder Problems

People can go for years with digestive symptoms and never realize that they may be related to a gallbladder problem. That's because they are so interwoven with other digestive symptoms such as indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and nausea.

The symptoms provided here may be related to gallbladder but bear in mind that it could also be something else beyond gallbladder problems. Gluten intolerance or celiac disease should also be considered depending on the specific symptoms. The first five symptoms mentioned above I feel are most indicative of gallbladder issues. It is not necessary to have all or many symptoms to have gallbladder problems but the more you have from this list, the more confirmation you have that the gallbladder is involved.

Many gallbladder problems can be addressed with proper nutrition and supplements. If you want a done-for-you diet that is is right for your gallbladder, you should read this article.

Gallbladder Polyps

Gallbladder polyps are growths that protrude from the lining of the gallbladder. They're usually innocuous and rarely cancerous (malignant). 95% are non-cancerous. 10% are the result of inflammation. Most polyps are the result of cholesterol deposits.

Gallbladder Polyps Symptoms

Gallbladder polyps are usually asymptomatic and need no treatment. They may be found incidentally on an ultrasound of the gallbladder done for some other reason. There is rarely pain involved and any pain that is there is most likely due to something else such as gallstones. Occasionally, they may grow large enough to require surgical removal.

Gallbladder Sludge Symptoms

Symptoms of gallbladder sludge may include:

  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Right sided abdominal pain
  • Indigestion

Symptoms of Gallbladder Sludge vs Gallstones

Gallstones and sludge will cause similar symptoms. Sludge is thickened bile with small crystals in the early stages of forming into gallstones. Symptoms of sludge, therefore, are usually less severe than those of stones, especially if the stones are in the process of moving down the ducts.

Moving stones that take their time on their way out can be uncomfortable, even causing acute gallbladder attacks with a sharp, stabbing pain on the upper right side of the abdomen that may or may not refer into the back right shoulder blade, nausea and vomiting.

Many gallbladder problems can be addressed with proper nutrition and supplements. If you want to discover which treatment option is right, you should read this article.

Please note that it is still advisable to consult your doctor for an accurate diagnosis. Gallbladder attack symptoms are listed here and again with more detailed explanation when you answer the three-minute gall bladder symptom questionnaire.
