10 Causes of Gallbladder Pain

Cause #2: Acute Cholecystitis

Cholecystitis is the medical term used for gallbladder inflammation, and it can be a cause of significant pain. There are two main types of cholecystitis: acute and acalculous.

Acute cholecystitis is almost always a result of gallstones and the related complications caused by these stones. The pain usually emerges when one of these stones gets lodged somewhere in the gallbladder. This causes some degree of inflammation, which contributes to pain and other symptoms of digestive upset.
