Symptoms of Gallbladder Problems
Symptoms vary depending on the cause. Many people may not have any symptoms.
If symptoms occur, they usually present as abdominal pain.
- Abdominal pain – sharp pain in upper right or center area
- Pain in right shoulder
- Pain between shoulder blades
- Nausea, vomiting
This pain varies in severity and may worsen when the patient eats. Fortunately, symptoms of harmful gallstones are much more noticeable because the pain is severe.
When a gallstone is blocking the duct, a patient might experience:
- Jaundice – yellowing of the skin or eyes
- Fever or chills
- Increasing/severe abdominal pain.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your doctor immediately. The symptoms indicating a blocked duct require immediate medical attention.
