Hi ladies, 

Some one told me you can also get gallbladder pain without even having gallstones, just wondering if anyone has had this issue.

    Yes its common in Peri and menopause.. also seen people comment who have the same pain who have already had there gall bladder removed.  I had it for about 3 months and it was really sore right side under ribs... did settle down by itself but it does flare up from time to time but not as bad and usually only last few days - week.

    I heard that too. With so many symptoms matching op the gallbladder symptoms I was convinced that something was the matter with my gall bladder. I had two thorough scans abroad and all came clear. I was a bit dissapointed. If I had known the problem then I would have found a solution. Now I am convinced that it is all to do with menapause!

    The underlying pain could be coming from your fibroids or cysts as was the case with me. I swore I had gallstones, had my doctor do a scan, of course, my gallbladder was fine but since she had a complete scan done of my upper and lower abdomen, it showed my fibroids were inflamed. Therfore, this was causing my supposed gallbladder pain. She said the pain isn't localized when you have fibroid or cyst pain, that it can occur in weak areas of the body, and it can also give you back pain and shoulder pain as well. Thus the saga of the perimenopause life continues with ever so mysterious side effects.
