In brief: Colic
The most common symptoms for sphincter of oddi dysfunction is biliary colic - usually episodes of right upper belly pain which come and go.
This condition is almost always diagnosed after the gallbladder has been removed. You will need to see a gastroenterologist who specializes in this area for a true diagnosis.

In brief: Abdominal pain
The most common symptom is abdominal pain.
Other less common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, and diarrhea. These symptoms may come and go and often vary in intensity. Sphincter of oddi dysfunctions are usually from a backup of the digestive juices or pancreatitis.

But also note that the diagnosis of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction is typically one of exclusion. That means there are other diagnoses that are more common for the type of symptoms encountered.
