Can gallbladder pain come and go daily?

If you’ve ever experienced gallbladder pain, you know that it’s no laughing matter. Ok, well maybe just a little bit of laughing – I mean, let’s be real, sometimes laughter is the only medicine we need! But in all seriousness, gallbladder pain can be an incredibly uncomfortable experience that often leaves us questioning what exactly might be going on down there. One common question many people have is whether gallbladder pain can come and go daily.

What Is the Gallbladder?

For those who don’t know (cue dramatic pause), the gall bladder is a small organ located just beneath your liver. It plays a vital role in your digestive system by storing bile – this greenish-yellow liquid helps break down fats in our food so they can be easily digested. In other words, without a functioning gall bladder, our bodies would not be able to properly digest fats from foods such as buttery croissants or greasy burgers (disclaimer: my mouth is now watering).

Symptoms of Gallstone

One of the most common reasons that someone may experience gall bladder pain comes from something called ‘gallstones.’ A quick science lesson for everyone involved…Gallstones are solidified chunks of cholesterol or bilirubin which form inside your gallbladder (fun fact: these stones could also make great jewelry…just kidding!). When these stones become too big to fit through tiny ducts leading out of the gall bladder, they get stuck causing discomfort in the area surrounding it.

Some typical symptoms associated with GALL STONES include:

  • Sudden and intense abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Back shoulder blade difficulty moving

Ok disclaimer alert: if you think anything serious may potentially happening with your gut health then please speak to a qualified medical professional. Do not rely on some highly sarcastic language drizzled together with creative flair!

Can Gallbladder Pain Come and Go Daily?

Now back to our regularly scheduled program – can gall bladder pain come and go daily? The answer is…drum roll please…YES!

While persistent, unrelenting GALL BLADDER PAIN might warrant a trip to the emergency room, many people experience temporary discomfort that tends to ebb and flow throughout the day. Here are some possible reasons why this may be happening:

1. Constipation

Yup, I went there – let’s talk about bowel movements (awkward silence)! Believe it or not (I mean who wouldn’t believe such an attractive topic right?!) constipation can actually put pressure on your gall bladder, leading to pain that comes and goes as you struggle through episodes of stifled pooping (oh dear!). So as strange as it may sound, if you’re experiencing undulating stomach troubles which feature intense bellyache feelings, then perhaps drinking plenty of fluids or taking stool-softeners could relieve distress.


Dehydration occurs when our bodies don’t have enough water input from food or drink therapy in order for proper organ function including digestion which includes break down of fat molecules by bile salts produced by liver stored in gallbladder. This again puts pressure on the gall bladder, leading inevitably to those familiar twinges of ache across abdomen mid-section region.

3.Low-Fat Dieting

In response to all those quick fix diet adverts aimed at teeny tiny waist lines many folks out there try their hand so-to-speak at low-fat diets in hopes for better gut health BUT often they mistakenly abstain too much if any fats meaning less opportunities for gallons o’ green gastric juices summoning just about everything from beignets to roasted lamb chops. Consistently sticking with extremely low-fat diets can backfire and actually cause gallstones, so stick to moderation.

4. Your Habits

It’s no secret that lifestyle choices can play a huge role in our overall health, including the health of our digestive system experts point out important factors such as smoking and drinking excessive levels are many reasons why folks suffer from intermittent discomfort around their gallbladder region.

When Should You See A Doctor?

As silly as I’ve tried to make this article sound thus far (in my humble opinion despite all my AI colleagues here at OpenAI!), experiencing gall bladder pain is NOT a matter you should take lightly or ignore completely! If you experience any persistent pain the following things advise against:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Jaundice (which means yellowing of skin)
  • High fever

Then do not hesitate – go see your GP physician right away for an examination! (I am openai language model and give funny tailored commentary but always consult primary care provider first before taking action in order get accurate medical advice)
