In brief: No

Gallstones generally are not related to hypercalcemia though some gallstones are made of calcium.
Most gallstones are asymptomatic. Symptoms from gallstones generally includes right upper abdominal crampy pain which may radiate to the upper back or shoulders. Elevated calcium can be a symptom of hyperparathyroidism and should be further evaluated.
