Pain: Gallstones may cause pain by blocking the outflow of bile from the gallbladder.

Gallstones: Gallstones and their symptoms can be highly variable from one person to another. Many people can walk around and feel normal with gallstones, and they do not need surgery. Other people with gallstones get upper abdominal gas and pressure discomforts with nausea or vomiting. If you hare having gallstone pain and symptoms, which usually get worse with eating fatty or greasy foods, then you should see you family doctor to see if they recommend referral to a surgeon. Probably also not the best to wait for severe unrelenting abdominal pain and vomiting to occur.

How come I have all the symptoms of gall bladder disease, but have the test results come back normal?

How come I have all the symptoms of gall bladder disease, but have the test results come back normal?

3 Possibilities: 1-your stones are too small to be seen by ultrasound 2-you have gallbladder dz in the absence of stones (dyskinesia)--dx'd by cck-hida scan 3- you don't have gallbladder disease (irritable bowel can cause similar symptoms). Have you seen a gastroenterologist or general surgeon? Either can help you navigate thru this and, hopefully, get you better. Good luck!

What are some of the symptoms of gall bladder problems?

Here you go.: Increased flatulence, with the associated flatus and belching, and right upper quadrant pain are both symptoms of gall bladder disease, but not absolute. If your symptoms are worse with fatty or greasy foods, and if you have some back pain and nausea, it would be quite probable this was gall bladder trouble. Your primary physician could help make your diagnosis, and refer you if needed.

RUQ Pain: Get a second opinion - preferably from a gastroenterologist. Organs in the area you describe include :, gallbladder, liver and colon. The right kidney presumably has already been ruled out as a source. Potential explanations are too lengthy to be discussed here. The best option is to get an objective second opinion.
