Severe Abdominal Pain for Six Weeks

tessacat1217 posted:
My friend is a 34-year-old male who has had severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting for about six weeks now. It does get worse when he eats, but it never gets better. He's lost almost 20 pounds because he can't keep anything in him. He has gone to the doctors several times, but they aren't finding any answers. They've done a colonoscopy, two barium scans, a gallbladder scan, and upper GI scope, and bloodwork to check for a gluten allergy, as well as check his liver and pancratic function. Every test has come back "normal." He is in agonizing pain, cannot sleep because of it, and can't really eat. He hasn't been able to work in a month because of the diarrhea and the pain. His pain is on the left side, right about belly button level. I need any suggestions for things for the doctors to look for that they haven't already.

has your friend had any problems before these symptons started? Did they check for kidney stones?
