- Sudden and intense pain in the upper right part of your abdomen. (Location of the gallbladder.)
- Pain between your shoulder blades.
- Intense pain below your breastbone.
- Pain in the right shoulder.
- Nausea and/or Vomiting along with any of the above symptoms.
- Digestive problems like bloating, heartburn, and acidity.

The pain caused by stones is intense and can last from a few minutes to a few hours. Normal painkiller might not help and therefore it is recommended to take the patient to your nearest hospital at the earliest.
