Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  These are some of the symptoms of gallbladder attack.

Moderate to severe pain under the right side of the rib cage

Pain may radiate through to the back or to the right shoulder

Severe upper abdominal pain (biliary colic)





Burping or belching

Attacks are often at night

Attacks often occur after overeating

Pain will often but not always follow a meal with fats or grease

Pain may be worse with deep inhalation

Attacks can last from 15 minutes to 15 hours

It may be Gallstones or the pain can be cause by many other conditions. It's best you see a doctor soon.

Here's a link that might be helpful
