Tired of the pain

For the past two years I have had mostly non-radiating pressure pain after eating small snack, sometimes after eating too much stabbing pain in my upper abdomen. I feel fatigue and pain after eating, no diarrhea, no constipation, bloating at end of day, area tender to the touch, some queasiness, worse when I breath deep, lightheaded, laying on right side makes it worse, comes on suddenly and increases throughout the day. I have had blood work, cat scan, colonoscopy, endoscopy that all came back relatively normal. Slight abnormalities that were found were low intra-abdominal fat on cat scan which they said made assessment of intra-abdominal structures difficult, alt 34, ggt 46, CRP <1, sucrase 59. I have been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel but the pain I have is right below rib cage slightly off to the right. I am at a lost - any ideas would be helpful!

Sounds like gallbladder problem. I suggest a sonogram to check for stones & blood work for gallbladder inflammation.  I'd see a specialist & also try a very low fat diet to see what happens.

Thanks for the comment. I have been thinking gallbladder too but had an ultrasound and everything was normal! I noticed that high fat diet causing pain can be a symptom but high fat foods don't bother me.
