What are the symptoms of gall stones?

I have gallstones which have just started causing me pain but my problem is that i feel numbness in my left abdoman under my left rib. It also goes around to my back area. There is no rash. Is this related to the gallstones or something else. What could be causing this numbness that comes and goes?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have history of gall stone. Your pain and numbness may be due to that. You should go for ultrasound abdomen to know the exact size and site as well as thickness of gall bladder wall. Treatment depends on size of stone and whether you have cholecystitis or not.

For abdominal pain you can take buscofan or dicyclomine. If you have large stone then surgery is required. Consult your doctor and plan accordingly.

Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
