Sudden sharp pains causing difficulty in walking, breathing, have gallstones, gall sludge. Treatment advice?

I was diagnosed 2 months ago with gallstones and gall sludge . Today I got a sudden sharp pain similar to how I would expect being shot would feel. I could not breathe , walk, or really move for a brief moment. Now my pain is slighty worse then my normal gallbladder attacks. I don t have insurance so I don t want to go to the ER unless it is a must. What is your advice?

Thanks for posting your query

The Gallstones by them self do not cause bad pain like the renal stones

It is only when the gallbladder is inflammed or obstructed due to a stone lodging in the neck that is pains very bad

I would suggest you go to the ER as soon as possible, and if you can bear get a Complete blood count done, if the WBC count is raised definitely go to the ER

Hope this helps
