Chest Pain

Gallbladder attacks can cause chest pain that has a pressure or squeezing quality. If a gallstone becomes lodged in the bile duct, you may experience pain in the front of the chest. Usually there is also pain in the right upper section of the abdomen and often this pain continues to the back of the chest. If the stone passes on its own, the pain will resolve. Often it will return on another day, especially after a fatty meal.
