No: Tremors are not assoc w gallbladder disease. Symptoms are usually pain in the right upper abdomen with or without nausea.

There something wrong at the liver and gallbladder areas, but the results for liver function test are normal, would a CT scan of abdominal area help detect anything ?
Sonogram showed gallstones dye CT showed gallbladder is functioning nnormal still have pain strange bowel functions what is next?
Surgery, IF...: ...Your pain is due to your gallstones. Typical gb pain is localized to the right-upper or upper-midline abdomen; it is a dull, pressure-like pain that tends to last for an hour or more; nausea+/-vomiting often accompanies the pain; while diarrhea may accompany an attack, it is not "classic". If this rings a bell, i would see a surgeon. Btw-ct scans do not demonstrate gb function. Good luck! ...Read more
I am having a lot of abdominal pain in the lower right quadrant. I have had my gallbladder looked at and it is functioning normal, but there is a weird orange oil that is commonly in my stool. Could I have an injury in the bile duct area?
How's your appendix?: You need a doctor exam to check for tenderness in the right lower quadrant. Appendicitis pain may start in the belly button and move to the right lower quadrant. You may have no appetite and nausea. I am not sure what to make of the "oily stools." Please see your trusty health care doctor to have a hands-on exam. Happy healing. You may need a urinalysis to check for blood as kidney stones . ...Read more
Normal abdominal CT, bloodwork for liver and pancreas function normal, I have no gallbladder, but pale stools for a week now. What else can it be?
Gall bladder removed coz of gallstones. No alcohol. Liver function tests all normal. 2 GGT tests- 89, 124 IU/L. Bile duct disease? Need liver scan?
LUQ pain for 2 months. Fullness and aching sharp pain that is under ribs from front straight through to back. Normal ct. history of elevated wbc and anemic. Could it be my spleen function? I had gall bladder disfunction that didn’t show until hydasca
Just a thought:
but there is an "entity" called "Splenic Flexure Syndrome" It is essentially BOWEL GAS which collects in the HIGHEST section of the large bowel (colon) the BEND which occurs just BELOW the spleen!
This is the "catching" pain some people get after RUNNING!

Marginal function: Your gallbladder is functioning at the threshhold of abnormality. 35% or less is considered abnormal, and if you're symptomatic, i would recommend the gallbladder be removed.
