Is Your Back Pain Just Muscle Fatigue Or Gallstone-Related?
Not all back pain can be a result of muscle fatigue and soreness due to physical exhaustion or spinal misalignments. In many instances, liver and gallbladder disorders can be accompanied by back pain. This is otherwise known as referred gallstone pain. Because the liver is situated in the mid abdominal region and because gallstones begin forming in the liver and the liver occupies such a large surface area, gallbladder, and liver problems can often be confused and be misdiagnosed as lower back pain. Women tend to experience back pain more often than men.
“Referred Gallstone Pain” Defined
An individual undergoing a heart attack may often feel an ache in the left arm. There is nothing really wrong with the arm, the individual is just experiencing a case of referred pain from the heart. The same with some cases of back pain; individuals may just be experiencing a case of referred gallstone pain. Referred pain is a term used when pain radiates from a distant and seemingly unrelated organ to another area of the body.
Referred pain due to gallstone (s) is not necessarily exclusive to back pain. Shoulder pain may also be related to referred pain from the gallbladder. This type of pain may often radiate to the right shoulder blade or in between the shoulder blades at the same time as sharp pain is felt in the right abdominal region over the gallbladder. Referred gallstone pain often wraps itself around the right rib cage and to the shoulder area. Referred gallstone pain is a classic gallbladder symptom.
Determine if your condition is caused by gallstone congestion
There are other Indicators that aid in determining if gallstones are present. These indicators can help narrow down the source of the problem when the symptoms being experienced seem elusive. These markers can be cataloged into the following classes:
Although having a few of these markers is not enough to preclude gallstones as the source of your symptoms if enough of these are being experienced, then it’s a good chance that the gallstones in the gallbladder, liver or bile ducts, are likely the cause.

Not Every Gallbladder Case Requires Surgery
Every year close to 700,000 people suffering from gall bladder symptoms and pain undergo gall bladder surgery even when a great majority of those patients do not require it. That is right: not all cases of abdominal pain require gall bladder surgery, even when the pain is experienced in the gallbladder region.
“Gallbladder Symptoms” Could Be Delusive
A recent study published in the British Journal of General Practice concluded that up to 63% of the patients that partook of in the study that reported symptoms of upper abdominal and biliary pain and elected to keep their gallstone (s) showed considerable pain relief even up to after a year after having declined surgery.(2) Of those that chose to undergo gall bladder removal, a significant number of them were forced to return to the hospital within a year with the same symptoms and gallstone pain as before their surgery. The conclusion of this study is that not all symptoms of upper abdominal and biliary pain are the result of gall bladder stones.
Pain Returns After the Surgery in 50% of Patients
Other recent studies have concluded that gallbladder symptoms and gallstone pain can return in up to 50% of patients that elect to have gall bladder surgery. The studies indicate that the intensity of post surgical gall bladder symptoms and pain can sometimes be higher and with far more frequent episodes than before the surgery. These symptoms range “from mild ill defined digestive symptoms to severe attacks of abdominal pain and jaundice,” irritable bowel syndrome, colicky lower-abdomen pain, upper abdominal pain, flatulence, diarrhea, esophagitis, gastritis, trouble digesting fats, excessive weight gain, obesity, and weight loss.(3)(4)(5)
Gallbladder surgery cannot prevent gallstones from resurfacing again because gallstones start forming in the liver. Neither can removal of the gallbladder prevent the toxins that have accumulated in and precipitated as gallstones from impairing your body over time.
You should cleanse your body on a regular basis and avoid symptoms. Conducting gradual and regular detoxification (detox) of your eliminating organs including your liver and gallbladder will not only remove the cause of many symptoms, but will help purge gallstones and other toxic deposits from accumulating in the liver, gallbladder and other detoxification pathways.
You might want to consider the Pulverexx ProtocolTM as one of your alternatives for helping relieve pain and gallbladder symptoms as well as for ridding your body of accumulated toxins and crystallized gallstone deposits. The program helps purge stagnant bile and sludge that can lead to infection or be the leading cause of a multitude of digestive symptoms.
Dissolve Gallstones With The Pulverexx Protocol™
The Pulverexx ProtocolTM is a program that dissolves both types of gallstones: cholesterol-based, as well as calcified or pigmented gallstones. It is a non-invasive option for gallbladder pain relief and prolonged liver and gallbladder health. The treatment helps to eliminate buildup and toxins by excreting them naturally from the gallbladder and liver. When toxic gallstones, stagnant bile and sludge are eliminated, pain goes away.
