Pamela Seroiusly though is it your right shoulder that hurts,? allot of times when a persons, gall bladder is acting up they have right shoulder pain and it can be any where in the shoulder, often around the shoulder blade area. Your gall bladder can give you stomach problems, I felt neauseated so much and it was difficult to eat because an hour or two later after I would eat, ( sometimes less) I would get sick or at least feel sick and my right shoulder would just ache like the dickens! I had never thought about till I went to the Doctor but those are clasic signs! I should of known we learned them in nursing school! But admittely I have been out of it for quite a while!
