Hi, I've been having upper right quadrant pain for nearly 5 months now. It comes and it goes, but at times it's nearly enough to bring me to my knees. My doctor performed an ultrasound, EGD, blood tests, and a few others, and everything came back normal. In an attempt to stop the pain, they removed my gallbladder. It seemed to help a little, but the pain is still there. I'm not nauseous, I have normal bowel movements, I haven't suffered a lack of appetite, or any fever or chills. I don't drink excessively (maybe one drink a week, if that).
Hard to say, maybe suggest a MRI/Scan with contrast to see if they find something. Do you remember any possible accident or injury u may have had and blew it off around the time the pain started. Sometimes the dumbest thing like tying shoes and you feel a "twinge" in your back. You chalk it up to being nothing and 6mo later you find out that you have a slipped disc or something. Good luck...

I am also having similar pain. Did you figure out what is happening.
Here is my situation.
All my life I was very active in eating all sort of vegetables. I am now 67 yrs. Recently I started to get abdomen pain , quite often, if I eat a moderate amount of some vegetables and meat products. This does not happen everyday..
SYMPTOMS.: When I get pain, usually, its localized at upper right quadrant or in the center of abdomen. Usually, it will be severe for up to 24 hours.
Some times, I got extremely episodic body shakes experiencing chills, and temperature to 100 F. This happens in summer or winter. When I get these chills, and if I take 500 mg of acetaminophen (Tylenol), they will subside when I sleep with 2-3 blankets. I have to take Tylenol a couple of times during night and day until my body temperature comes to normal and pains ceases.
FOODS THAT GIVE THIS PROBLEMS;
Vegetables, Non-steamed or cooked., Cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, corn, Brussels sprouts, some beans, stored red peppers
Avocado; Always gives abdomen aches if I cut and store in refrigerator for even one day. So now a days I completely avoid it.
Other vegetables cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, celery, bananas, cucumber, radish, red broccoli usually are not, when I clean them in warm water three times. By washing I hope any residual pesticides and other chemicals will be remove more than 95%.. I am not sure weather this cleaning process will remove any attached bacteria and fungus. But if I eat a salad containing same vegetables in restaurants, I get abdominal pain at least 10% of times. I use lot of 1% Milk.
MEATS: Meats occasionally cause this problem. I have a summer home in upstate NY . I always get these symptoms unless the food containing meat products are boiled in water. Sandwiches made with chicken and fork will always cause this problem in that city.
Note: My gall bladder was removed 25 years ago, and I had endoscopy three years ago. The doctor told me at that time of gall bladder removal, that it was infected so they have to remove when they did appendix operation. A few weeks before that procedure at that time, I got chills and shakes and subsided by Tylenol. Also I am carrier of a variant gene in MEFV( I do not have abbreviation of this) that is an unknown significance for Familial Mediterranean fever. One of the result of that carrier is abdominal pain along with so many other problems. But I do not have other problems, like head ache, repeated fevers etc.,
I had, blood. Ultra sound, MRI (with 1.5 Telsa power) and several gastroenterologist examinations. They could not identify any organic problem with any internal organs.
Please respond if your experience is anything similar to this, and how you are coping..
