Not positional: You might feel better with your knees drawn up, but if you are having a gallbladder attack you should be evaluated. This can lead to cholecystitis and cholangitis (which requires urgent intervention). You should consider electively having your gallbladder removed if you continue to have these symptoms to prevent recurrences.
