"Gallbladder Pain



Des This is a article that gives good and consistent information on everything that a human being needs to understand about gallbladder pain.

Definition of Gallbladder Pain

Gallbladder pain may be defined as any pain that is triggered by gallbladder disease. The pain will manifest along with other symptoms of the disease.


Symptoms of Gallbladder Disease

The symptoms of gallbladder disease may be distinguished by the presentation of the disease. There are three primary groups that are used to describe the associated symptoms.


Biliary Colic

Biliary colic is deemed the most widespread symptom of gallbladder disease and is typically presented as sporadic pain that is felt in the centre or right portion of the upper abdomen. The symptoms may be different in persons afflicted with the disease but quite often any of the following symptoms may be apparent.

The primary symptom is normally described as a sharp pain in the upper right abdomen just under the rib cage. It is likely tobe so severe that it migrates to the upper region of the back. It is not unheard of for a person to also feel some pain underneath the breast bone when affected by this disease.
The pain will be unending even after taking OTC pain relievers, after switching position and/or passing gas.
The pain will normally start at a particular time of day, but it is unlikely to materialize more than once per week
The condition improves on its own after several hours. If the pain is still noticeable after a twenty four hour period it is possible that it may actually be acute cholecystitis or a more life-threatening condition.
It may also be accompanied by some degree of nausea and/or vomiting.
The symptoms can manifest once again even after they have stopped. In certain situations it may take years to experience another attack.


Acute cholecystitis (Gallbladder Inflammation)

Some 3% of people having the symptoms of gallbladder disease will be subjected to inflammation. This will occur because of an impediment in the duct by gallstones or sludge. The symptoms closely resemble those that are associated with biliary colic but are typicallyconstant and will result in more pronounced pain. The symptoms of acute cholecystitis include:
Severe pain in the the upper right abdomen that is constant and that continues for many days. The pain is usually worsened upon inhalation.
Nausea and vomiting usuallyaccompany these sudden attacks.
The pain may also travel to the back or may be evident in the shoulder blades. It is occasionally felt underneath the breast bone or on the left side of the body.
An estimated one third of personswill experience fever and chills.

Once a person is afflicted with these symptoms emergency treatment is needed. Gangrene and perforation of the gallbladder may develop if it is not dealt with immediately. Just about 20% of individuals with the condition will develop an infection. For diabetics the general risk of complication is more likely.

Blockage in the gallbladder as the result of gallstones

If gallstones become lodged in the common bile duct they will block the duct decreasing effective operation of the organ. Symptoms will materialize that are almost identical to those that occur when stones are present in the gallbladder. It will occur in association with jaundice, fever and chills, and heart palpitations among other symptoms.
