Hei, The symptoms of gallstones vary depending on the location, size, and number of stones, but generally include the following:

1.Upper abdominal pain: The pain is usually located in the right upper abdomen or upper abdomen, and sometimes the pain may radiate to the shoulder blades, right chest or back. The pain may worsen after eating greasy food.

2.Nausea and vomiting: Gallstones can cause obstruction of the bile duct, preventing digestive juices from being properly excreted, leading to nausea and vomiting.

3.Abdominal distension: Gallstones cause bile to accumulate, which can lead to abdominal distension and sometimes digestive system symptoms such as diarrhea and constipation.

4.Jaundice: If the bile duct is obstructed by stones, bile cannot be excreted, increasing serum bilirubin levels and causing jaundice, which manifests as yellowing of the skin, lips, and oral cavity.

5.Fever: Sometimes gallstones can cause fever, with a body temperature higher than 37.5 degrees Celsius, accompanied by systemic symptoms such as chills and headache.

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is recommended to seek medical attention for examination and diagnosis as soon as possible.
