Individuals describe the pain of a gallbladder attack differently, but many of them agree that it is excruciating. Some find the pain is a cross between kidney stones and labor, claiming it begins on the right side of the body and radiates into the abdomen.

Pain may also radiate into the back, chest, or shoulders. Some folks have no chest or abdominal pain and only feel tension in the upper body, around the shoulder blades.
