RUQ pain, waiting for tests/results, help!

I've had RUQ pain x 9 days, have had: bloodwork, sonogram, cat scan, HIDA w/cck and tomorrow I have endoscopy. I just got notes from my dr saying everything so far has come back normal. The pain ranges from sharp pinches to dull aches that radiate to my back-my diet is down to crackers, jello, ginger ale and lean cuisines. I've never had any stomach problems before-appendix already removed. Looking at some other posts I see I'm not alone in having this w/normal lab results and I've only been dealing w/this for a little over a week and I'm already upset and frustrated. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel; and worse-are we looking in the wrong direction since everything is normal? Could it not be my gall bladder at all but something else?

Went to regular dr for follow up and unfortunately was told we have to wait for endoscopy results before going any further. Still in pain, still upset and frustrated..:(

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If the gall bladder pathology has been ruled out, the other causes could be gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and GERD. Disorders of the liver and colon could also cause pain. Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

I have similar pains, been getting tests for various causes since last July.  So far they said I have mild Angina, then I didn't, got scan they found a sizable gall stone and lots of warts on my liver the arrest is 7.5 cm!, they said they would remove the gallbladder, went again last week hoping for a date for operation and told pains not consistent with gall bladder!.. Now got to wait again for camera tests. I'm in pain every day sometimes bad pain. Today had 180 mg pain relief but nothing touchs if. I feel very frustrated at having to wait so long for different tests. I feel as if things are getting so much worse nd they are dragging their feet.  Don't know what to do or who to tell.
