Discomfort after eating, no diagnosis

5 week ago every night I went to bed I got lower left chest discomfort then after that for a week I had the discomfort for 2 days straight, I went to the doctor and he had me do a ph test for reflux which was normal, I then made the connection that this discomfort was food related and was the worst 1 to 2 hours after eating. He then had me do a chest xray and ultrasound which were normal, he also prescribed zantac that I took at nights, I then did a ct scan which was normal. Then I started to have yellow residue on the toilet paper when I wiped but still for the most part normal looking stool. I then saw a gastro specialist and got an upper endoscopy which looked normal. The pain the is in my lower left chest and goes around to my left shoulder blade area. I had a couple blood test and one said I had slightly high bilirubin levels and I've had a little bit of yellow in the corners of my eyes. I've stuck to low fat bland food for the past 3 weeks. The specialist is still working with me but the past 5 weeks since it started have been rough. Any thoughts if what I should do to get a diagnosis or what it could be. This may not be related but fyi 2 months ago I had what the doctor thought was epidymymitus that I took cypro for and got better but I had an allergic reaction to the cypro. I have also had rad right chest pains and other stomach pains through this time but they're not consistent. Thanks for any thoughts you may have.

You need to tell your GP to write you a letter to see specialist. Because it sounds like you have a flair up with  your Liver and if you have yellow in the corners of your eyes could be serious. So it could be an idea to take yourself to Hospital so that the Doctors can do tests on your liver function and so forth.
