Does not have to do with gallbladder but when I had kidney stones I never had any of the traditional symptoms of pain in the kidneys. Instead it caused me indigestion and got where I could not go to the bathroom. After a week when I would eat it just felt like it was backing up all the way from the bottom end up to my throat. Never had any of the traditional pain till I had the stones blasted and started passing them. Took quite while before I got diagnosed properly because of the lack of traditional symptoms.
