Constant discomfort below right rib cage

I have had this for about a month and a half now. Ultra sounds, CT scan, blood tests show nothing.  I dont really have an appetite, never really feel hungry.  I have an uncomfortable feeling under my right rib cage (upper right quadrant of abdomen). Its pretty constant. Sometimes its better, sometimes its worse. It can tend to get worse after i eat. Seems that twice after eating pizza late at night, I wake up and the discomfort is a lot worse.  Greasy food may make this feeling worse??
There is no actual pain to where i want to take any sort of pain medicine. Just discomfort to severe discomfort.  Bowel movements seem to be pretty normal.

There is no radiating pain to my back.  The first time i saw my GI, he said that it could be constipation by looking at my ct scan?  That doesnt seem to be the case.  He wants to do a colonoscopy, but I dont think that is where the discomfort is coming from.

Could it be gallbladder issues?
Liver issues?

Please, I will take any advice!!! HELP! =(
