Hi. It could be gallbladder stones. Stones typically cause all you are
describing, specially after you eat (starts about 15 to 20 minutes after you
eat). Symptoms are worse if you eat fatty foods (dairy, fried foods, butter).
Usually, stones are seen with an ultrasound, but sometimes you need a special
scan (I think you had it)to see abnormalities in the function of the
gallbladder. I had a huge gallbladder stone and had surgery last year. I Wish
you luck. Rosalva.
