    The most common cause of an inflamed gall bladder is gall stones obstructing the gallbladder and this progressively causes distension and inflammation of the gall bladder. 

    Of course there can be a variety of other causes. You would usally have had an ultrasound which often sheds light on this. 

    Discussing this with an upper gastrointestinal surgeon would be the next step. Often once the attack of pain subsides or improves , patients are tempted to not pursue it any further. The problem is if you have had this attacke once. You could have it again and the nex attack to be worse with other associated complications such as cholangitis or pancreatitis.

    Kind regards
