In brief: GB may be cause

I presume no gall stones because of negative ultrasound exam. However gall bladder dysfunction does not necessarily require presence of gall stones.
HIDA exam with cck will evaluate gb function. Dyskinesia of gall bladder can cause symptoms without presence of gall stones. Sometimes abnormalities of liver and pancreas have to be excluded. Probably need further workup for other causes.
