Gallstone disease: The exact source of pain has to be determined: it can be superficial, due to inflammation or trauma of your abdominal wall, or deep inside the right upper abdomen. If you had a history of gallstone disease, this may be a recurrence (stones forming within the remaining biliary ducts)
