Pain on side, back, abdomen, sick. Collapsed gallbladder, gallstones on scan. On analgesia. Consult doctor?

Hi i have had what i think is biliary colic since 2am sunday morning, yesterday the pain was so bad i had to go back to bed, taking analgesia regularly but its not helping. Feeling sick as well on and off.
I had a scan a few weeks ago which showed that my gallbladder had collapsed and i have multiple gallstones.
Today when i got up i thought that i had pulled muscles in my side, back and abdomen due to the pain yesterday. But am wondering if its colic still as the pain is in the same places. Should I see my gp tomorrow?

Thank you

Hi and welcome to HCM.
This sounds like biliary colic, but also there can be asociated panceratitis or hepatic distension pain. i dont consider this is an emergency, but you should consider cholecystectomy as soon as possible.These stones can cause intensive pain, cholecystitis or pancreatits so be aware of it. If you notice dark urine,jaundice, pain in the back fever and vomiting you should go to ER. WIsh you good health.
