Gallbladder problems, especially gallstones, will cause intense pain in the upper right part of the abdomen, near the breastbone, and in the back between the shoulder blades. They may also cause chronic diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, jaundice, or fever.
It is said that the risk factors for developing gallstones can be summed up by the 5Fs: Female, Fertile, Fat, Fair, and Forty. However, this diagnosis is very limiting and is not encouraged to be used by doctors anymore.
An inflamed gallbaldder will cause intense pain in the upper right abdomen, as well as tenderness. The pain can later spread to the shoulder and back.
Though there are no umbrella causes for all gallbladder problems, a high-fat diet resulting in obesity, lack of exercise, and processed foods often contribute to the risk of developing complications.
Besides prescribed pain relievers, a hot compress on the tender area of the abdomen can help relieve pain and ease spasms.
