In brief: Meaning severe?
Acute cholecystitis, "gallbladder attack": severe, upper abdominal pain, sometimes radiating between shoulder blades, associated often with vomiting.
Can have fever, dark urine, pale stool, especially if stone gets stuck in bile ducts. Can have infection, and/or pancreatitis-both serious, potentially life-threatening problems.
