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.
