The gallbladder lies on the right side of the abdomen. Signs and symptoms of gallbladder problems can
include fever, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, chills and shaking, chest
pain under the breastbone, abdominal fullness and gas, and abdominal
pain. Abdominal pain can be severe,located on the right side (right
upper quadrant) or in the upper middle of the abdomen, may subside over
12 to 18 hours in uncomplicated cases, may be recurrent or with similar
pain in past, occurs following meals, worsens during deep inspiration,
radiates to the back or below the right shoulder blade (right scapular
area)and worsens after eating or drinking greasy (high fat) foods or
fluids. If you feel this fits your symptoms, please see your doctor.
