Things to Know About Your Gallbladder


2. Signs of a Gallbladder Problem

Like all organs, things can go wrong, and you might not even pay attention to the fact you have the organ until it starts causing health problems. In the case of the gallbladder, problems will usually surface as pain that’s “mild to excruciating” in your abdomen that’s present occasionally or almost constantly, notes EveryDayHealth.com.

Other signs you may be having a gallbladder issue include upset stomach, vomiting, fever, chills, pain in the chest, darker urine or “clay-colored” stool, adds the source.
