Yes: Often, gallstones don't give specific "symptoms". Many people may experience bloating, dyspepsia, nausea, "heartburn", or other non-specific abdominal complaints. An abdominal ultrasound is the best initial study for diagnosis.

But remeber if the u/s does not show gallstones still may be gallbladder dysfunction and recommend a HIDA scan.
