Gall bladder: Occasionally there is sludge in the gall bladder which causes symptoms and isn't noticeable on ultrasound,etc. Other possibilities include pathology of the bile ducts or dysfunction of the gall bladder. If you experience upper abdominal discomfort after eating, fatty or greasy foods, consult a gastroenterologist for more testing. You may be referred to an abdominal surgeon for an opinion,also.
