Belly pain: Common symptoms of gallbladder problems include pain in the upper right side of the belly, but it can also be in the center and even through to the back on the right side. The pain may be constant, but usually worse after eating a fatty meal. Nausea, diarrhea, and heartburn can also be symptoms.
Dr. Charles Cattano

Gallbladder symptoms: "biliary" symptoms are sub-acute onset of right upper quadrant abdominal discomfort (radiates to right shoulder blade, crescendoing over several minutes, resolving over 6-8 hours +/-nausea/vomit. This typically occurs after a fatty meal due to a gallstone becoming impacted in the cystic duct (connection of gallbladder to biliary tree). Acalculous cholecystitis is a sick gallbladder without stones.

Muscle pain?: Pain in back muscles is more common reason for this complaint than actual kidney pain. But kidney stone possibility cannot be ruled out. Also, could be related to kidney infection esp if you have signs of of UTI e.g. Burning, frequency, or foul odor with urination. A visit to your doc will help differentiate this.

A female asked:

Is a high gallbladder ejection fraction (94%) normal? Ive been having upper right quadrant pain, nausea, and various other symptoms.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh
Pathology 49 years experience
Does not add up: Gall bladder ejection fraction is not a usual medical term. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. It would be prudent to consult your doctor. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age.
