Get checked again : You need to get an Ultrasound and some blood work done to ensure it is not acute cholecystitis(emergency) as opposed to just biliary colic(non emergency) . If your pain is severe, fever, nausea and vomiting are present, then I suggest go to the ER . Only you know if your symptoms are worse . Alternatively , Your primary care provider can order these tests as an outpatient .
