The gall bladder is a small, pear-shaped organ that is located near the liver. Its purpose is to store and release bile into the small intestine. Bile is used by the human body to aid in the digestion of fats.
There are many different problems and health conditions that are associated with the gall bladder such as gallstones, inflammation of the gall bladder, colic and many other gall bladder problems. It is important to be aware of the different gall bladder symptoms so that if you ever develop them yourself you will know to get help.
Gallstones are the most common problem associated with the gall bladder, and they are capable of causing jaundice and colic. Stones often go unnoticed for extended periods of time and can be potentially dangerous if left untreated. Gall stones can reduce and even stop the flow of bile into the digestive track thus causing digestive problems and pain.
There are a few gall bladder symptoms that are especially common such as chest pain in the right side may occur, as may nausea or queasiness, vomiting, gas, and belching. You may not be able to walk without bending over, usually due to intense pain, and sometimes the pain will radiate right through to the back shoulder blade on the right side or in the middle.
Gall bladder symptoms are often quite painful, and so it is therefore important to know what can be done to relieve the pain, even temporarily until you find a more long term solution. The first thing you should do is change your diet. You want to refrain from eating greasy fatty foods and instead include more fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet.
