    gallbladder symptoms prior to diagnosis?

    Hi -
    For those of you who have/had gallbladder problems, would you mind sharing what your symptoms were prior to diagnosis? Thanks.

    ditto to all of the above--nausea, rib cage pain that would spread to back between shoulder blades, alternating diarrhea/constipation, heartburn worse then ever and bloating/gas.
    My mom would get right shoulder pain whenever she would eat fatty, greasy food especially pork.

    Pain under my ribcage on the right, pain in the back around the right shoulderblade. I also had bad nausea (although some of that was due to gastritis). The pain was sort of a dull ache, but really bad. OTC meds didn't even touch the pain. Vicodin didn't even get rid of the pain, just made me care less about it (I got that for in between the surgical consult and the actual surgery). It didn't seem to matter what I ate. Even eating fairly low fat foods, like cereal, made me sick.

    Re: gallbladder symptoms prior to diagnosis?

    constant sharp stabbing pains between shoulder blades through the rib cage - it would literally take my breath away. It would wake me up and keep me up all hours of the night. I thought I was having a heart attack a couple of times and went to the ER.

    My ultrasound was negative when checking my gallbladder. So luckily my dr. sent me to get a dye test (can't remember the name of the test) and it came back positive and within a week they removed my gallbladder.

    PAIN IS GONE!!!
