If you suffer from gallbladder disease, you have probably heard of gallbladder back pain, or you may have experienced it. According to what some experts say, there is a connection between gallbladder problems and back pain.
Gallbladder is located beneath your liver, on the right side of your abdomen. Most people who have gallbladder problems have pain in this part of the body, but this pain can spread to other parts, like the right shoulder, for example.
Gallbladder problems usually occur because of gallstones. Gallstones are sometimes very small. Such “silent” stones usually don’t show any symptoms. They do not cause problems, so people do not even know they have gallstones. However, larger stones can cause complications. A gallstone can get stuck in the bile duct and obstruct the bile flow, which can lead to various problems. Some people can have gallbladder problems, even though they don’t have gallstones.
Gallbladder symptoms include:
● Abdominal pain
● Abdominal discomfort
Abdominal pain usually starts after meal, and can last for hours. Jaundice can be defined as yellowing of one’s skin. This symptom is extremely unpleasant. If you experience any of these symptoms, you must visit your doctor as soon as possible.
Sometimes, it is not easy to diagnose gallbladder disorders, because the symptoms are quite non-specific. In fact, many people think it is nothing serious, and they do not pay much attention to the symptoms. It is important to visit your doctor in time. Most gallbladder problems can be successfully treated if diagnosed early. On the other hand, if left untreated, gallbladder disease can result in serious complications, including gallbladder cancer.
Gallbladder Back Pain
Pain in the upper abdomen can be a sign that something is wrong with the gallbladder. A person can also experience back pain. The pain can start in the abdominal area, but it can spread to shoulders and back. It starts after having a large and/or fatty meal.
Gallbladder symptoms can be relieved if you change your eating habits.
● Eat small meals instead of large ones.
● Avoid fatty foods.
● Stop eating junk foods, fried foods, fatty sauces, margarine, butter, fatty meat (oily fish, pork, and beef), sugary foods, and stop consuming alcohol.
● Carbonated beverages should also be avoided.
● Your doctor can give you some natural remedies to relieve the symptoms and prevent more problems.
