Gallbladder (Gallstones) symptoms

Hello, I am having all of the symptoms of gallstones. My ultrasound showed a 2.5cm stone in my gallbladder . I have had the stone for about ten years and I am now going to see the surgeon and get it removed. I have nausea, headaches, pain in my stomach and chest and upper. back. I am just curious I also have smelly urine and tiredness with body aches. I need to know if the last three symptoms are common with gallbladder issues and stones ?

thanks for choosing health care magic.Abdominal pain in right upper quadrant,vomiting and associated fever and discomfort points towards problem with gall bladder.when you are already having gall stones the diagnosis always can be made.Take liquids orally avoid high fat diet and see a surgeon who will recommend some blood tests and ultrasound for supporting the diagnosis.

Thank you. I had a colonoscopy yesterday without sedation. The said the abdominal pain I was feeling was due to unexcelled gas. I was vomiting. It felt like a gallbladder attack, which I have had many times before. Could a colonoscopy bring on symptoms from the gallstones? I had an ultrasound for my gallbladder two weeks ago which only stated that I have gallstones. No inflammation etc. I have had no trouble for 2 years. Now, all day, I have this dull pain in my upper right and is exactly like a kind of pain I experienced when I was having gallbladder attacks. I am diligent with my diet.

Central upper abdominal pain that radiates to the back, 10 on a scale of 1 to 10, wakes me up in the middle of the night, at that time it s about a 6/10 and gradually gets worse. Causes sweating, weakness, violent vomiting for several hours at a time. PCP and ER said it s just heartburn, but no burning sensation noted, no prior hx of heartburn or morning sickness. 28 weeks pregnant, age 23, 5 ft 4 in tall, weight 170 lbs. Family hx of gallbladder problems (maternal grandmother had gallbladder removed several years ago). Could it be gallstones misdiagnosed as heartburn? OTC heartburn meds have no effect on the attacks. Have had 3 attacks in the last month.

I have been diagnosed with Gastritis and esophagitis. I was also diagnosed with gallstones. Are all these related? That is, is it possible that the gallstones could be the underlying cause for the gastritis and esophagitis? Dr. has recommended gallbladder removal. I m wondering if that will relieve symptoms from gastritis and esophagitis.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
