Right Side Pain

I have been to the ER and to lots of doctor appointments for this and it keeps getting worse. Now if I eat anything my middle right ab is very sharp pains.  I live on egg whites (the only thing that doesn't seem to hurt my stomach).  I tried eating some cheese dip a month ago and woke up in extreme pain on my right side that spread across my stomach, threw up and had to go to the ER. The dr swore it was my gallbladder but all tests (blood, ultrasound and HIDA scan) were normal.  I tried eating 1 cookie 2 weeks ago with my egg whites and woke up with the same pain just not as severe but I didn't throw up this time.  Now I hurt all day long (right middle side).  I'm exhausted, my entire stomach is VERY tender to where I can't carry my daughter or hug anyone tightly. I just finished a breath test to check for small intestine bacterial overgrowth so I'm waiting on those results. Does anyone have any suggestions, my doctor seems pretty confused since all tests (CT scan, colonoscopy, endoscopy, ultrasound, etc) all come back normal.  Driving a car is painful, anytime I have to sit upright.  I always have to lean to the left or it hurts.

Also I started getting the worse headache over my right eye while I was in the ER a month ago and I still get it throughout the day. Same spot and very painful but it comes and goes.

My aunt had same issue. It could be a diseased gallbladder. It looked normal on all the tests and functioned normal but caused pain on right side even when she ate. Could be a liver problem too. Blood tests, with liver function panel. Hope this was somewhat helpful. She didn't have the headache thing though. That could be an entirely different issue.
