Have you looked at your test results for yourself? if not i would ask for a copy of them. has it been the same doctor that has done all of the test?

It's not ruled out until you've had a HIDA scan. And even then I had three before mine came out conclusive!

Upper-GI pain might also be caused by gas. Ever tried anti-gas pills before every meal? What about antacids? Acid reflux can also cause pain (although I'm not sure if it's as bad as what you have--at least not without leaving evidence for the endoscopy to find).

Motility disorder is when your GI tract doesn't move at the proper speed. For some people it might move to fast (they almost always have diarrhea problems). For others it moves too slowly; they almost always have constipation and gas issues.

My mother's cousin's motility was slow and it got so bad that her stomach shut down and they just did gastric bypass on her. But that's an extreme case. My mother has also had slow motility for years and hers has not gotten worse.
