It is conceivable that biliary dyskinesia may cause mid epigastric pain through biliary reflux, however other causes, including gi and/or non gi related cannot be ruled out specifically for left sided abdominal pain. You best reference remains your gastroenterologist in trying to sort them out, keeping ( and revising with your gi) a log of circumstances affecting the pain should help.
