Recently I found out I have gallstones. I have chest pain, back pain, arm pain, leg pain (all on the right side of my body). I am losing fine motor skills in my right hand including the ability to write. Could this problem be attributed to the gallstones? My symptoms have gradually progressed since March 2011. I am a 39 year old women.

Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX
These symptoms are not related to gallstones.
These are signs of nervous (neurological) problem for which a neurology consult is advisable.
Chest pain, if on exetion, needs to be evaluated to look for reduced blood flow to the heart.
