Gallstones Symptoms

Gallbladder’s function is to accumulate bile produced by liver and to assist in digestion and absorption of fats in the duodenum. Its position is just below the liver. Gallstones are the solid structured pattern of the cholesterol and bile salts. When the liver starts emitting bile, that is unusually drenched with cholesterol, the gallstones formed are known as cholesterol gallstones. Another reason for the development of gallstones is low levels of bile acids and bile lecithin.

At the very initial stage gallstones are not easily predictable. By the reach of certain size one of the main symptoms to be found is gallstone attack, in which an individual experiences harsh ache in upper abdominal section that gradually rises for just about 30 minutes to more than a few hours.

Symptoms for gallbladder stones are mentioned below:

  • Sturdy and stern pain emerges in upper abdomen.
  • The pain may possibly spread out among right shoulder and back.
  • Warning signs like nausea, vomiting, abdominal bloating, gas and indigestion crop up, if the pain develops in the lower region of the abdomen, nearer to the pelvis.
  • The pain is more frequent after the intake of fatty or oily meal.
  • Attack may arise in every few days, weeks, or weeks.
  • The main gallstone attack is also known as biliary colic. It is repeatedly accompanied by nausea.
  • The second main general site for pain is the right upper abdomen beneath the edge of the ribs.
