Pain in the lower abdomen. Gall bladder problem?

I'm having right side lower sharp pains. They come and go through out the day. They are so bad that they make me stop whatever I'm doing & be still, for if I move the pain gets worst. The pain subsides after a few mintues. And I also feel like a squeezing sensation as well at times in that area. Can it be my gallbladder?

Thank you for the query.

Yes, it can be your gallbladder indeed. Especially if the pain is in the upper right abdomen and radiates to the back. Nausea should be also present. The pain should be related to the meals.
Other possible reasons of your pain is rib nerve irritation due to its compression or inflammation in around. Such pain is usually sharp, well localized, aggravates when moving the chest. Such nerve problem can be caused by spine disc herniation for example.

I suggest you to visit your doctor, have abdominal ultrasound, blood work and liver tests. If nothing will be found, you should visit orthopedist and consider muscular or nerves related reasons of your pain. Spine MRI might be helpful.

In a meanwhile you may try Diclophenac 50 mg twice a day (should be prescribed by your doctor, should be taken with Omeprasole 20 mg once a day).

Hope this will help.
