Actually your gall bladder is on the right below your rib cage.
The pain can be felt in the center or to the right mainly where the gb is. However it may not be your gall bladder, but if it is, it can refer pain to the upper back usually between the shoulder blades. Good news is if it is the gall bladder and having that resolved will fix improve your back pain.Good luck thank you.
