Since having my gallbladder removed and after going back to work in the past couple weeks, I sit alot. I have been experiencing discomfort in my left side and pain in my shoulder, sometimes both of them. It feel like gas pain. My doctor did blood work and everything came back good. I'v had the full gamma of ultra sounds etc. and everything looked good. Why am I getting the pain in my shoulders?
Pain in your shoulders is probably not related to the gallbladder removal. Pain in the left shoulder could be due to the joint itself or inflammation of the surrounding muscles or to coronary disease (transmitted pain). You can request an X-ray of the shoulder and ECG of the heart to help diagnose the pain.
