What causes burning sensations in lower abdomen in men. My husband has it and it comes and goes?

No short answer: A number of possibillities, if he does much lifting he may be straining the muscles. He may have a prostate infection (that's often back pain though). He could have diverticulosis (pockets in the intestine) and they may get obstructed and/or infected at times(more often left side).

Assuming your doctor did thorough interview & exam, if stomach acid seems to be most likely cause, then high dose omeprazole (Prilosec) can help determine if acid is to blame. If symptoms persist, then other causes should be investigated. Acidity usually affects only upper, central abdomen. ...Read more

3 yrs heavy drinking, 1 yr smoking, bloodtest shows kidney/liver function ok. Dull pain in lower right back, burning in abdomen.
Chronic pancreatitis?

Impossible to say: If you had blood tests because of these symptoms, i would hope that they also did tests for pancreatic damage, particularly a lipase (or an older test, amylase). Are you still drinking, despite the pain? If so, i would be very concerned. Easiest way to find if they are related is to stop and see what happens. Gastritis or even a peptic ulcer is a more common problem, and alcohol makes it worse. ...Read more
