Musculoskeletal : The gallbladder itself is not likely to give a heaviness. It typically presents with spasmodic pain like " colic ". The heaviness deep in your chest could be musculoskeletal. Talk to your doctor about a nonsteroidal to see if it gets better. Also talk to your doctor about weight reduction to help.

Various causes: Were the gall bladder and liver normal on u/s? Have you had a chest xray? You could have a hiatus hernia or rib cage strain . Is the area tender? Does movement aggravate the discomfort? Is the pain ever sharp like a pinched nerve? Are there belching and indigestion symptoms? These questions and answers will help your physician diagnose the problem.
