Another opinion: If you've had all those studies you need to look at gut health, food allergens. Go to a4m.Com and use directory function to find a local functional medicine doctor to help you test your gut with specialized test like cdsa from genova or similar lab to evaluate gut health and correct the underlying problem. Stop exposing yourself to radiation and spending $ for unneccessary tests.

Abdominal pain: Is the pain after eating? Has it responded to any medications? Are any of your blood tests abnormal? Liver function tests done? During the hida scan, did they calculate your gallbladder ejection fraction? Perhaps you ought to consider a second opinion.
