In brief: (RUQ) Abdominal Pain

A gallbladder attack is characterized by right- or middle upper abdominal pain (severe, pressure-like, noncramping, nonburning) that typically lasts for an hour or two.
Associated symptoms include nausea+/-vomiting+/-chills. The pain often radiates around into the back and/or shoulder. Attacks are often precipitated by fatty or fried food intake, although middle-of-the-night attacks are common.
