Hi just wondered if anyone has attacks of stabbing or prickly type pains between shoulder blades as had these last couple of days and suffer indigestion and sure i have something not right with my gall bladder as i sometimes get pains under right side of ribs, bloating and burping and occasional nausea.

    Hello

    Have you been diagnosed with gallstones? If not, this definitely sounds like it. When I had a medium to bad attack I always got pains in my shoulder blades, generally the right hand side. Your gallbladder is located just under your ribs on the right hand side too. I'd recommend going to a doctor if you haven't been diagnosed yet x

      Hi Hannah, i had ultrasound but they could not see any stones but i have read they dont always show or can be sludge in gall bladder.  I will have to see what doctor suggests if they continue thanks.

      That really does sound like gallstones, would definitely express your concerns with your doctor. Good luck x

      Thanks Lisa, sometimes its a throbbing ache to right side and sometimes its like a stitch. It seems to have settled at moment but it does seem to come and go x

    Hi Frances exactly same pains,as you stitch and throbbing. My ultrasound showed no stones either but i saw a consultant last week who says they don't necessarily show and he has referred me for another type of scan as well as an Endoscopy.
