Feeling nauseous? Wondering if you have a gallbladder problem?
Gallbladder symptoms can range from mild nausea to a serious medical situation that demands prompt medical attention. Learn to understand the difference in the two most common types of gallbladder problems so you’ll have a better idea about what your symptoms are telling you.
A gallbladder attack usually causes more intense symptoms that can include severe abdominal pain focused in the right side, nausea, and unrelenting vomiting. A gallbladder attack arises when a gallstone physically blocks the bile duct which can cause an infection to develop, leading to fever and chills.
Biliary colic, technically called chronic cholecystitis, is less intensely painful and tends to come and go over time. The pain is usually under the right rib cage and comes with nausea and loss of appetite. The pain may radiate to the top of the stomach, the mid back and right shoulder.
You may be tempted to ignore these symptoms or explain them away as stress or indigestion. But if left untreated, biliary colic can lead to a gallbladder attack and surgery.
