What Causes Right Sided Chest Pain?


Causes of chest pains on the right side include gallbladder disease or gallstones. One of the major clues that an individual is suffering from gallbladder disease or gallstones is pain in the right shoulder blade. This pain starts under the shoulder blade and spread out. The liver is found just below the rib cage therefore when it is injured, the pain will also be felt just under the right side.
