Find a new doctor. If you have a problem, whether it is stress or a broken gallbladder, and they're not offering a solution then you need to find someone better. At the very least, it seems to me that someone with these symptoms and no gallstones should be offered a HIDA test.

It is worth mentioning that gallbladder pain is not typically responsive to over the counter painkillers. That is by no means proof of a gallbladder issue, but pain that clears up with Paracetamol would suggest looking elsewhere.
