In brief: Pressure Pain

Gallbladder attacks will typically cause severe, pressure-like, non-cramping, non-burning pain, well-localized to the right upper or midline upper abdomen.
The pain does not wax-and-wane: it is usually steady and unrelenting, and may go away as quickly as it started, typically within 1 hour.

The pain may also be present in the lower chest and is often mistaken for a heart attack.

In brief: Pressure Pain

The pain from a gallbladder attack is distinct from most other causes of abdominal pain.
The pain tends to be severe, unrelenting, pressure-like pain, typically localized to the right upper- or midline upper abdomen. The pain may radiate around the right side to the back and/or shoulder. The pain usually does not wax-and-wane: it is "steady", then completely gone typically w/in 1 hr.
