For both types of ulcers epigastric pain is a common symptom.
Gallstones or gallbladder stones are also known as cholelithiasis. They originate in the gallbladder when concretions form in the bile stored in the gall bladder. During the digestive process, the gall bladder stores bile (a fluid produced by the liver), which is released into the small intestine every time the food enters it. Bile is a combination of bile acids and other biliary salts.
