Undiagnosed Right Side Abdominal Pain

Ok- I am a 38 female. I have had mild pain that I could live with in the upper right side of stomach near the rib cage for about 5-6 days, I have had gas for the last few days to a week and sulfur burps for most of it, I have been bloated, have had heartburn, but the pain in my right side pain was tolerable. I started Prilosec about 4 days ago and that took care of the heartburn and the sulfur still have gas, bloating, and pain. Now on Wednesday night I ate a large steak and was woken with severe pain on the right side under the rib cage twords my back around 4am. The pain was so bad I had trouble walking, sitting, driving, it would come and go, like spasms and felt like someone was stabbing me. It literally stopped me from functioning normally. I tried to go to work and made it in. The pain was so bad I went to the ER and they did blood work, urine, cat scan, and a ultrasound. All were clear? I don’t know what to say the pain is unbearable they said they weren’t sure what the cause was and to do a gallbladder diet and sent me home. I am so frustrated!!!!! Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? I don’t have insurance and I never go to the ER I never miss work I recently had pneumonia and didn’t even go to the ER for that and I went to work until they sent me home and said I couldn’t return without a medical release from a doctor so I went to a walk in clinic and was diagnosed with pneumonia. My point is I don’t go to the doctor unless I need to this pain is dibilitating and I really to help finding out what this is and how to keep from getting it again!!! Thank You!!!!!
