Hello everyone,  I have had Crohns for 4 years now, been on Humira most of that time, since January I have had nausea & pain in my right lower abdomen & in my middle to right upper abdomen (kinda where you would have gall bladder symptoms) ...so I go see my GI doctor, he does a small bowel follow thru & a colonoscopy, both come out normal, which is good....but no answer to my pain & nausea..he says its not my crohns & that is under control right now ....any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated???? 
 
thanks kellyconfused

Have someone run a test on your gallbladder. The GI series won't show anything. There are special test for the gallbladder to see if there is blockage. Good luck and feel better.

You can still be having gallbladder issues without stones (which is what an ultrasound looks for). A HIDA scan will show the ejection rate.
