    Ask for an abdominal ultrasound of your gallbladder and a HIDA scan which measures how well your gallbladder is working.  This will tell you if you have gallbladder problems.  Another possibility is IBS if your gallbladder is normal.  Have you been tested for gastritis?  It is possible to have gastritis and IBS.

    Gallbladder attacks will typically happen after eating fatty foods. The only way to know for sure is thru a ultrasound. I went for 6 months of hell before going to a special list who ordered the testing. Went to ER a few times spent a lot of money (CT scans blood work) ultrasound is the only real test.

    Get a MRI and and CT. I think it's Sounds like you are having gallbladder issues. I went through same as you . blood test show nothing. So don't let the Drs tell you other words. Hang in there ok. Good Luck. I feel for you.😎

      CTs and MRIs are very accurate and do pick up tumours.  People get sick very quickly with pancreatic cancer.  It is very rare in people of your age.  Since your tests came back clear, accept the results and don't worry.  Keep going back to your doctor and ask for an abdominal ultrasound of your gallbladder and a HIDA scan to check gallbladder function.

      Are you taking any medications or supplements?  Sometimes they can change the colour and constistancy of your stools.  Have you had an endoscopy to look for gastritis?

      If the supplements don’t work, come off them to see if the colour and frequency of your stools improves. Hopefully, an endoscopy will reveal something.  Some people say their stools change with gastritis.
