Hi Tarzanna

Thank you for your post!

Gallstones may cause pain in the upper abdomen. This is sometimes called an attack because it begins suddenly, often after a fatty meal. The pain is severe and may last for 30 minutes or several hours.

Other symptoms include:

Intermittent pain on the right, below the ribcage
Bloating, nausea, and vomiting
Belching, gas, and indigestion
If you have the following symptoms, see your doctor right away:

Abdominal pain
Low-grade fever
Jaundice (yellowish color of the skin or whites of the eyes)
Clay-colored stools


Hope this helps,
