Gallbladder Symptoms | Is it a Gallbladder Attack?

When you’re suffering with stomach pain after a big meal, you might wonder if you’re having gallbladder symptoms.


Severe gallbladder symptoms, known as a gallbladder attack, can be extremely painful and require prompt medical attention. But these symptoms can mimic other forms of digestive dysfunction.


The most severe gallbladder symptoms, a gallbladder attack, occur when a gallstone becomes lodged in the bile duct. The blockage is painful and may even lead to infection. Symptoms include:

  • Intense, sharp pain in the upper abdomen
  • Pain that is also felt in the right shoulder blade
  • Lower grade fever
  • Possible nausea and vomiting
  • Pain that is worse when you take a deep breath or touch the area
  • Pain that doesn’t feel better in different positions or with passing gas


It is also possible to have gallbladder symptoms indicating a gallbladder attack without a stone that is actually stuck in the bile duct if the bile duct has become irritated enough by a stone that has managed to pass.
