    One thing I have learned reading all the posts is that "there is no normal" when it comes to symptoms.  I had central nausea for several months, only 3 episodes of violent vomiting and NONE of my symptoms appeared food related.  Spicy food didn't make it worse and bland, low fat food didn't make it better.  Finally the lab work found my enzymes way off (elevated) and then I had a CT scan and it did show gallstones.  I had surgery and after 10 days of pain, I can pretty much do and eat what I want.... but the CT scan showed some suspicious nodules in my lung, and a repeat CT scan showed a stone in my common bile duct that was not there pre-op on the ultrasound or original CT scan- but again, no "normal" symptoms.  I feel I am doing well post-op and am glad the gallbladder is out as the doctor said it was very inflamed and had likely been causing problems for a long time.  I have an endoscopy scheduled to address the runaway stone....  Not sure I answered your questions except my main symptom was upper center nausea.  Good Luck!

    Yes them are symptoms of a bad gallbladder. Hida Scan will definitely let you know. Most likely your gallbladder has to come out because the gallstones can cause blockage and you definitely don't won't that. Good luck and everything will be ok!!
