Gallstones are small stones that form in the gallbladder and are thought to develop due to an imbalance of chemicals in bile inside the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a small organ found underneath and attached to the liver. Its main purpose is to store and concentrate bile, which is required to digest fats. Following a meal, the gallbladder releases bile into the digestive system to aid digestion.

Non-Emergency Chest Pain. Dr Kamal Chitkara answers the FAQs

Symptoms of heart disease are often ignored because of the common misconception of cardiac symptoms. The best example of this is ‘chest pain’, the most well-known symptom of heart disease. If chest pain is due to coronary artery disease (Angina), the vast majority of patients do not regard their chest symptom as sufficiently severe. Patients usually believe heart related chest pains should be severe, debilitating and recurrent. None of these features are necessarily true, but can sometimes serve to reassure patients who often may be in denial, often describing their heart symptoms as ‘indigestion’ or ‘heartburn’.
