Symptoms from stones: Stones in the gallbladder are usually symptomless (often diagnosed by chance by imaging or other evaluation) unless they migrate into the neck of the gallbladder or common bile duct. Acute cholecystitis results with RUQ and migratory pain. If the acute attack subsides, chronic inflammatory changes persist with subsequent acute exacerbations. Chronic cholecystitis may be associated with dyspepsia.
