Common symptoms of Gall Bladder stone disease or cholelithiasis are:
- Gaseous distension or bloating
- Flatulent dyspepsia
- Acute upper abdominal pain along with vomiting and fever. This occurs when a gall stone gets impacted at the neck of the gall bladder
- Jaundice occurs when a gall stone drops down from the gall bladder into the common bile duct resulting in obstruction to the flow of bile and hence causing jaundice.
Pancreatitis occurs when the slipped gall stone in the common bile duct irritates the duct of the pancreas gland leading to inflammation of the gland. This is an emergency situation and patient requires admission into the intensive care unit most times.
