What Are The Symptoms Of Gall stone Pain?

Gall stone

Having pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen? Having pain after a rich meal? 

Gallstones may be the cause. 

Gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of the abdomen,  just beneath the liver. 

Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid. 

Gallbladder stores and releases bile, a fluid made in the liver, to help in  digestion. Bile also carries wastes like cholesterol and bilirubin, which the body  makes when it breaks down red blood cells. These things can form  gall stones. 

Gall stones can range from the size of a grain of sand to that of a golf  ball( homeopathy hospital near me) .  

Gallstone Types 

1. Cholesterol stones- These are usually yellow-green. They’re the most  common, making up 80% of gallstones. 

2. Pigment stones- These are smaller and darker. They’re made of  bilirubin. 


1. Excess cholesterol in bile. Normally, bile contains enough  chemicals to dissolve the cholesterol excreted by the liver. But if the liver  excretes more cholesterol than bile can dissolve, the excess  cholesterol may form stones. 

2. Excess bilirubin in bile. Bilirubin is a chemical that’s produced  when the body breaks down red blood cells. Certain conditions cause the liver to make too much bilirubin, including liver cirrhosis, biliary  tract infections and certain blood disorders. The excess bilirubin  contributes to gallstone formation. 

3. Improper gallbladder emptying. If gallbladder doesn’t empty  completely or often enough, bile may become very concentrated,  contributing to the formation of gallstones (homeopathic medicine for kidney stone ) . 

Risk factors

1. Risk is high in females.

2. Obesity  

3. Sedentary lifestyle 4. Pregnancy

5. High-fat diet 

6. Low-fiber diet 

7. Family history of  gallstones 

8. Diabetes 


9. Blood disorders, such as  sickle cell anemia or  leukemia 

10. Medications that contain  estrogens, such as oral  contraceptives or  

hormone therapy drugs 

11. Liver disease. 

The majority of people with gallstones never know they have them and have no symptoms. These are called “silent gallstones”. 

Gallstone attacks often occur after eating a meal. Symptoms are 

∙ Pain in the upper abdomen and upper back. The pain may last for several hours (Biliary colic). 

∙ Nausea and Vomiting 

∙ Bloating of abdomen 

∙ Belchings 

∙ Other gastrointestinal problems, including bloating, indigestion and heartburn, and gas 

For a small number of people, gallstones can cause more serious problems  if they obstruct the flow of bile for longer periods or move into other  organs (such as the pancreas or small bowel). 

∙ Fever 

∙ More persistent abdominal pain 

∙ Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice) ∙ Itching of the skin 

∙ Diarrhea 

∙ Confusion of mind 

∙ Loss of appetite 


Ultrasound: It’s usually all that’s needed to locate gallstones.  MRCP: Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a  type of MRI that specifically visualizes the bile ducts. It’s non-invasive  and creates very clear images of the biliary system, including the common  bile duct.

ERCP: ERCP stands for Endoscopic retrograde cholangio pancreaticography. It uses a combination of X-rays and endoscopy,  which means passing a tiny camera on the end of a long tube down the  throat and into the upper GI tract.It can also be used to remove stones from  the ducts if they are stuck there.  

Homeopathic Management 

Homeopathic medicines are useful for alleviating the pain of biliary  colic as well as for the long-term management of gallstones.  Homeopathic constitutional medicines promote the bodily mechanisms  to correct the metabolic errors in cholesterol and bilirubin metabolism.  Thus, it prevents the progress of disease and helps in dissolving the  preformed stones.
