Ive been having left upper ab pain and pain directly into my back in the center and left as well. Accompanied with nausea vomiting 3-4 times a week and constant burping and regurgitation. Stool has been lighter than normal as well. Vitamin d is low as well even though i take 5000iu a day. This has been happening for almost 2 years. Ive had ct scans and ultrasounds that were clear and incidentally found mild fatty liver. Also had a upper endoscopy and colonoscopy which came out good aside from barretts esophagus. They think its my gallbladder but nothing shows up on scans. Im getting a hida scan in one week because the dr says some people have left pain instead of right with gall bladder issues. Is this correct? Has anyone had a hida scan that showed problems after blood tests and ct scans come back negative? Could i have a chronic gallbladder problem for 2 years?

It took a Hida Scan to find that my gallbladder was not work working properly. The upper barium swallow test showed no stones. Good luck with your test & I hope you can get to the root of the problem.

Im hoping and praying the hida scan shows its bad. Tired of living like this. Theres no question in my mind that some people at work or even family think im a hypochondriac. I had a string of sinus problems and 3 surgeries as well between 2015-2017. The gastro drs and sinus drs have all said that the reflux and burping up food and drink could very well have caused the sinus problems.

The hida scan showed no obstructions and a ejection fraction of 87%. The dr said this was perfectly normal. Upon searching normal results ive found that normal is between 35%-65% and that 87% is hyperactive. Not a lot of data on it because it seems its rare but there are people saying that thr high end of the scale is just as bad.

When I had my scan the stuff I had to drink brought on an attack. I was not feeling well at all when I left there. I learned later from my dr that happens when the gallbladder is not working right. The only thing I can think of is to get another opinion.

Take care.
