Gallstones symptoms are typically the following:
1. Steady, severe pain on the upper abdomen area
Fifteen years before I was diagnosed to have gallstones, I
already felt pain whenever I eat fast. The pain also occurs
when I don't eat for a while (4-5 hours) and then eat like a
Blame it on my quest for a thin body. I would starve myself.
Sometimes, I would just eat three pcs. of Skyflakes crackers when I feel hungry. And then go for another hour or two before eating a heavy, high-protein meal.
Add to that is my diet of meat, soda, minimal vegetables and
fruits, cakes and chocolates. I didn't know I was already a candidate for gallstones surgery.
Anyway, as years pass by, the pain just gets worse until I had
to be hospitalized. The pain is centered on the upper abdomen
area, right above the belly button. That area gets hard and you
could feel and hear gas bursting. You could literally feel your
The pain is excruciating I could not utter a word. When I was
hospitalized in 2006 because of the severe pain. I was only 29 years old. I was holding my abdomen while going out of my house to look for someone to bring me to the hospital. I guess the look in my face said it all: "bring me to the hospital now!"
So if you have any of these pain that I just described, you
could have symptoms of gallstones.
I couldn't really remember what happens BEFORE I vomit.
According to women's health websites, the vomiting usually
happens after a fatty meal. Well, if every meal I eat is fatty,
how would I know which one triggered the vomiting?
Anyway, what I remember is the vomiting. It occurred less often
than the pain on the upper abdomen, but it was worse. It was a
horrendous ordeal since you know you have to vomit but it takes
too long for the vomit to spill out. So in the process you don't breathe for a few seconds and so you fell like you're going to die.
After vomiting, you feel like you're given a second life to
live. Really. This is one gallstones symptom you don't want to experience ever in your life!
3. Abdominal bloating/Gas
Another gallstone symptom is abdominal bloating. This goes hand
in hand with gas and belching.
When you have gallstones, your stomach always feel bloated. One
mistake of eating a fatty food like chocolate or coffee, you're
sure to burp and fart and have the usual symptoms of indigestion.
If you burp often, then it might be a symptom of a gallbladder problem.
More serious gallstones symptoms that require immediate medical attention are the following:
- Low-grade fever
- Yellowish color of the skin or eyes (jaundice)
Luckily, I didn't get any of these advanced gallstones symptoms
that would have required an emergency gallstone surgery.
Nevertheless, I had my gallstones removed through open surgery
months after I was diagnosed. Aside from the severe pain, I was
advised by my surgeon (who also went gallstone surgery) not to
wait until I get jaundice before I decide to have surgery.
Jaundice or yellowing of the skin and eyes is already a symptom that the gallbladder is blocked and the liver is seriously damaged.
And I didn't want that to happen!
