Extreme pain in the middle of your torso, also in the back sometimes, especially after eating roughage or fatty food.

There are some gallstones that don't cause any pain. This is called silent gallstone. Usually not really a threat and are left their if they are not causing pain. If you are having pain, contact your family doctor and she/he will recomend getting an ultrasound. Ultrasounds are the only way to find out if you have gallstones.
