Do you know how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a gallbladder attack? A blocked bile duct can cause intense chest pain and heartburn, forcing bile up into your chest. May victims mistake the feeling for a heart attack. A gallbladder attack may include a full or bloated feeling in the stomach and abdomen. You may have a fever or chills and digestive issues like nausea, stomach pain, and gas. Watch out for pain that centers around the upper-right part of your stomach or right shoulder blade. Dark brown urine and jaundiced (yellow) skin and eyes are also common symptoms of gallbladder problems.
Take care of your health and be careful about ignoring those little warning signs. It’s better to do a little preventive maintenance before your body’s “check engine light” starts flashing.
