What causes stabbing pain in abdomen, lower back pain and menstrual cramps?
Stone in bile ducts can be the reason.
Thank you for the query.
Similar to gallstones pain can be caused by a stone in bile ducts. You may have some nausea, bitter taste, lack of appetite with this issue. Urine can get darker.
Pain in this area can be also caused by urinary tract infection or stones. It usually radiates to the lower abdomen. Frequent urinating, burning while urinating can be also present.
If the pain gets worse after physical activity, spine disc problem can be the case.
I suggest you to consult your doctor and have some tests done. Abdominal ultrasound, blood work (liver tests, bilirubin level, GGTP level), urine analysis should be done.
If spine problem seems possible, you should consult orthopedist.
Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
It is possible to have stones without gallbladder.
Please note that stones can appear in bile ducts as well. Removing gallbladder, you only get rid of stones. But you do not get rid of stones creation tendency. So stones can appear in bile ducts, as there is no gallbladder.
So this is possible and it happens. Please follow as advised above.
