    Good luck with that, hida scans aren't all that helpful either.

    I had a similar issue that's been going on for years and the so called Dr's still have no clue what is going on or simply don't give a sh!t?

    Hida scan didn't tell a whole lot or the Dr's read it wrong, as I had pain during the test they said that's a sign of a bad gallbladder, but supposedly the test said it was good enough? Not great, but good enough...what?!

    Sure sounds like it could be your gallbladder though , but hope they don't tell you it's a gallbladder attack with no explanation as what and why.
