Do you still have your gallbladder?

You did not say what you have eaten or were doing when you get the pain. I am with the other poster in the question of do you still have your gall bladder? The pain you are describing matches the pain I had when I would have a gall bladder attack. Now if you were exercising and have the pain like a "stitch" in the side then that is from your tissues not getting enough oxygen while exerting yourself. It will go away with drawing in breath a little deeper.

First thing that ran through mine mind is gallbladder. I had similar pain when mine first began to "act up". Then it became more central (near the pouch) when I would eat a few bites, then came the nausea, etc. Before I had mine removed, it got to the point it woudl hurt, I would break out in a cold sweat and be nauseous even without eating. To be on the safe side, because there are so many things it could be, check with your doctor.

sounds like what I had going on... oneday it got soo bad thought I was dying and went to ER only to be seen after the attack was over. After a few test by my own doctor it turned out to be the gallbladder not functioning right, it wasnt stones, it just wasnt working at full capacity, only 30%,...had it removed laproscopically and the pain is gone...simple procedure up in one day ...in/out surgery. Goodluck have it checked out before the pains get worse.

Lisa - what came of your pain?  I am 20 wks post op and have started having a similar pain. First thought it was something I ate but that was not it. My surgeon's office said it may be from scar tissue and to eat soft foods and keep track.  The pain now does come when I eat  just off and on during the day.  Hate to make appt. with dr. and find out it is nothing but just does not seem right.
