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.

Does movement aggravate the discomfort? Is the pain ever sharp like a pinched nerve? Are there belching and indigestion symptoms?
