Default gallbladder attacks

Has anyone had one? What do they feel like?

I'm having terrible burning pain followed by sharp pain in the "v" of my stomach, right under my rib cage. I'm going on the 3rd day of it. It's not the first time I have had this, but still it really hurts. Last night I slept upright cause it's the only way I could control the pain. I made a call to my doctor who of course is out for the day.

That could definitely be it. I had my gallbladder removed when I was 15 weeks pg with Alyssa because the attacks would get so bad. I would get them either following a meal, or in the middle of the night. The pain would usually be really nagging and sharp, and be right under the right side of my ribcage and extend to the V of my stomach. I would even feel the pain radiating to my back. They are AWFUL! Gallbladder pain/attacks are more painful than labor to sorry that you are having this pain!

My Dr confirmed my gallstones with an ultrasound, and the surgery was done laparoscopically. The recovery was very fast and I am SOOO glad I had it done and am free from those attacks.

I've had several before it come out. Most of mine were an uncomfortable feeling up towards my ribs. Right before it came out I had a massive one and thought I was dying. It hurt everywhere. My stomach, chest and back. The pain will start in your right side up close to the ribs. Everybody feels it different.

I had pain along my back on one side & my sister had it elsewhere. Its strange how everybody feels it differntly. I also had the labrascopic surgery & a quick recovery.

Its brought on by eating fat, because your gallbladder contracts when it processes fat. Try cutting out all fat & meat & see if it doesn't help you temporarily since your doctor is not in.
