I've been having sharp pain under my right rib for about a month and a half. I went to the ER after getting a slight fever and an ultrasound was done and showed nothing. Was sent home with no answer. I also have vomiting an nausea. Usually feel worse after eating anything! Went to GP and simply said it was Acid Reflux even though I don't have any symptoms of acid reflux. I demanded a referral to see a GI and will be seen next week. Has anyone gone through all the test and found a diagnosis? I know the gallbladder can disfunction but I'd like to hear similar stories and what the outcome was.

    Thankfully we have two hospital systems where I live. I saw a GI that was connected to the other one, not the one I went to the ER for. The GI immediately suggested a HIDA scan without me asking. I have that scheduled 8 days from now. I hope it's my gallbladder and I can get it removed and feel better!
