Question What were your gall bladder symptoms?


I recently had a liver panel (boodwork) done and my alk phos (ALP) enzymes came back elevated. I'm scheduled for an ultrasound of the liver and gall bladder for this coming Tuesday.

My question is....what sort of symptoms did any of you have before discovering you had gall stones/gall bladder issues. I have what I call a "pinchy" pain that radiates from my waist up my right side to under the ribs and it's always accompanied by tons of gas!

At first I thought the pain could be muscle related...but now I'm not so sure.

I do not have any other symptoms of gall bladdr disease...such as nausea, light colored stool, etc.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Re: What were your gall bladder symptoms?

The right side pain is typical of gb problems. Everyone is different. Some have one or two symptoms, some all of them. I only had the pain when eating fat. The nausea came a few weeks before I finally had it out. There was about 5 months between the first big attack and when I had it out.

Re: What were your gall bladder symptoms?

I had HORRIBLE stabbing pain that came on instantly. I felt like my blood sugar dropped, I felt a bit like passing out- I thought I was hungry.. Made a small salad, ate and laid down. Couldn't get back up for 4 hours.
HORRIBLE stabbing pain!
Hard to take a deep breath in. Pain was just under my right rib on my right side/slightly toward the front.
I could tell it wasn't muscular.

It still hurts 2 weeks later, but not as bad. Feels like I have a bubble or something under there. Nausea comes and goes, diarrhea also and bloating/gas.
Surgery in 2 weeks. I went to the walkin clinic the next morning, ultrasound the following day.
Good Luck!
