    Megkate3 posted:
    Hi all! Quick question . . . yesterday I had a very sharp pain on my right side pretty high up. It was almost into my back. It is kind of a dull pain today. Any ideas on what that is? I've been trying to pay attention to things being of figuring out when I'm O'ing so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

    Hmmmm.. I have this sometimes.. Not too sure what it is, but I thought I could Bump this up for an answer!

    I don't know what it is...but wanted to add that I was having twinge like pains in the exact spot you mention...almost like in the kidney area?? Nothing like that make me cry out in pain but enough to be like 'whoa, what was that???'

    Just wanted to let you know that although I dont have the answer...I am WITH ya!
    Megkate3 responded:
    Thanks ladies! I feel better knowing I'm not experiencing weird things alone. I never thought about kidneys . . . but it feels fine now, so I guess whatever it was is over.

    I know that my mom gets Gallbladder attacks...a lot of the time the pain is high up and also in back. It is pretty bad though it sorta puts her down for awhile so I'm not sure if yours was that bad or not? I get similiar pain but mine is on my left side? Anyway just thought it could be a possibility but don't worry too much because your gallbladder can be removed if it ever needed to be.

    Could it have been O pains? I know sometimes I get pains in my side when during O. It usually only last a day, maybe two; but it's never enough to make me worry. It's more like a dull stabbing pain...I guess.

    .....gee, I'm not that big of a help....Lol.

    Gallbladder stones are different in dimensions so are seen to be as smallish as sand-like materials and as massive as golf game balls. These kinds of build up are either constructed from calcific and bilirubin or blood cholesterol. Nearly 80% of the gall stones are discovered to be produced from bad cholesterol. Occurrence of gallbladder stones wouldn't continually develop signs, but yet, this can take place if the rocks block up the circulation of bile. Scroll right down to discover more regarding gall stones as well as other gall bladder problems.
