Here is some info that you may find helpful.

Gallstones may cause no signs or symptoms. If a gallstone lodges in a duct and causes a blockage, signs and symptoms may result, such as:

  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the upper right portion of your abdomen
  • Sudden and rapidly intensifying pain in the center of your abdomen, just below your breastbone
  • Back pain between your shoulder blades
  • Pain in your right shoulder

Gallstone pain may last several minutes to a few hours.

Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any signs or symptoms that worry you.

Seek immediate care if you develop signs and symptoms of a serious gallstone complication, such as:

  • Abdominal pain so intense that you can't sit still or find a comfortable position
  • Yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes
  • High fever with chills (Reference: Mayo Staff)

I have been having constant nausea, belching, upper back pain, upper abdonimal pain, vomiting, and diarreha.

I had an endoscopy, which showed mild gastritis. The ultrasound came back normal and my hidascan came back at 18%, which suggests my gallbladder is functioning less than normal.

What about you?
