What are the symptoms of gallstones?

Why do they show up?


Answer by  Trina94 (94)

Pain in the upper right or middle abdomen. May have full feeling, nausea, vomiting, and fever. Symptoms appear because of excess bilirubin or decreased ability of gallbladder to empty bile.


Answer by  NotQuitePhD (113)

Symptoms of gallstones, which are caused by too much cholesterol or bilirubin, include intense pain in the upper right or center of the abdomen, between shoulder blades, and/or right shoulder.

Gallstones are mainly hereditary, but being "fat, female, fertile and forty" encourages their formation. Pain is felt under the lower ribs on the right side, after eating fats.

Gallstones are made from cholesterol. You might first get an idea you have them when you start having severe pain. Gallbladder pain can be tricky to figure out because the pain might be between your shoulder blades or it may be high up in the top of your abdomen. You may start to feel sick after eating anything.
