Is it true that lower back pain linked to gallstones/gallbladder disease?

Lower back

Back_pain
pain is not one of the symptoms of biliary tract disease. You and your doctor should look for an unrelated cause.

Would a ct scan of the chest abdomen and pelvis see something wrong with the gallbladder? And would it se gallstones present or previous? Had normal ct scan 2 weeks ago but i have bad pain right there

Yes

Pain
A ct scan will pick up most gallstones as well as thickening and swelling of the gallbladder and bile ducts. The only thing a CT scan does a lousy job with is detecting if the gallbladder has a hard time emptying bile. This can cause pain as well. You need a HIDA scan to detect this.

Dr. Rafael A. Lugo answered:

Is it true Peppermint make gallstones worse and helps to stimulate bile which could trigger a painful attack or passing of stone into bile ducts?

No

Cholelithiasis
Peppermint does not have an effect on gallstones that we know. It does worsen reflux since it relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter.

Gallbladder stones symptoms and solutions for the problem?

Right upper abd Pain

Open-uri20130202-21455-hrkx3o
Gallstones can be asymptomatic for years and require no therapy. If symptomatic you may experience characteristic symptom of intense pain in the upper right side of the abdomen, often accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and possibly referred pain in between shoulder blades or below right shoulder. If gallstones are symptomatic you may need to remove your gallbladder surgically (cholecystectomy).

Gallbladder stones nausea - what do you eat to make symptoms better?

Biliary dyspepsia?

Nausea_and_vomiting
Biliary stones may eventually pass into the small bowel on their own. Worry less about diet & more if your stones are causing symptoms, or you have elevated bilirubin &/or dilation of the bile ducts on recent imaging. A sick gallbladder (found by CCK-HIDA) or ductal stones (depending on location, size, biliary anatomy) may promote infection, pancreatic &/or liver inflammation & need to be removed.
