Symptoms of Gallbladder Problems

Your gallbladder can have many different types of problems – and many of the problems are asymptomatic (you don’t feel any symptoms). Of course, the most common gallbladder issue is gallstones. However, there are many other types of gallbladder disease: gallbladder cancer, polyps, cholecystitis, and more.

The main symptoms of gallbladder problems are:

  • Pain in your gallbladder: Your gallbladder is located right below your liver, on the right side of your body half way between your throat and belly button. The pain can range from a dull ache to mind-numbing, sharp pain.
  • Abdominal pain: Though your gallbladder may be having problems, other parts of your abdomen may hurt as well. The pain can be continual or when your press on different parts of your tummy.
  • Pain in your right shoulder: Pain from your gallbladder can radiate to your right shoulder.
  • Jaundice: The whites of your eyes or your skin can become slightly yellow. This comes from your liver having difficulty filtering your blood.
  • Bloating, gas, or different looking stool: As your gallbladder helps with digesting fats, if your gallbladder isn’t working right, it can affect the rest of your digestive tract.
  • Fever, nausea, and vomiting: Though these symptoms can be tied to many other health issues such as a flu or food poisoning, they can also be tied to gallbladder problems.

There are many different symptoms of gallbladder problems and each type of problem has different symptoms associated it with it. Please read about different types of gallbladder disease to see which symptoms are tied to each gallbladder problem.

    I had the pain in the gallbladder area, but my pain radiated to my right hip & pelvis area also . I’ve visited probably every sight there is for natural remedies , & only one mentioned the pain in the pelvis, hip area. While not so common, some people may not realize this is also associated with gallbladder pain as well. I didn’t have pain in my chest or shoulder. Only the gallbladder,right hip, & pelvis .Thought this info might be helpful for others like myself….
