My SIL currently has gallbladder stones but hers felt more like indigestion or heart burn.   She is getting her gallbladder removed which is a minor surgery but a 6 week recovery time. 

Definitely see a doctor.

I had gallstones when I was 8. I dont remember where it hurt though.

Definitely go see a doctor!

You have two options: 1) See a specialist now to get it checked out; or 2) wait until you are hit with excrusciating pain and have to go to the ER and then wait for surgery.  If you have medical insurance and time to go to the doctor I recommend that path.  Kidney stones and gallbladder stones have a way of getting worse overnight.

I had gallbladder issues a couple of years ago and the pain was similar.  Sometimes it’d be really bad, sometimes it’d be mild.  I’d definitely get it checked out.  I ended up having all normal test results, but when they took it out, it was full of scar tissue.  

@Swizzle:  6 weeks??  That’s crazy!  Did they do it laparoscopically?  That’s how mine was done and I only had a week recovery (the doctor said up to 2 weeks total might be needed).

I wouldn’t be surprised if you are having gallbladder issues. I had many gallstones and have since had my gallbladder out. I would recomend seeing a doctor, because once it gets bad it is the worst pain I have ever had!

Good luck 🙂

I waited for a long time with similar pain and about 6 months to a year of it dropping me on the floor at work and home and my SO begging to take me to the hospital before going to the doctor.

Don’t do that. Go to the doctor and the specialist, get the nuclear testing and find out what’s up.

I had similar pain for over a year.  Every time they checked my gall bladder it came back fine.  I even did the 2 hour $5,000 test.  Long story short, I ended up in the ER in July.  I had an inflamed pancreas.  That was a several day hospital stay.
