What can cause 10+ mos chronic abdominal pain? Blood tests, barium swallow, gastroscopy, gallbladder all normal. No h. pylori. No diarrhea or vomiting

Several ideas: When a patient has persistent abdominal pain despite negative tests it suggests that either the patient has a less common condition that hasn't been considered or tested for OR that the symptoms aren't due to a physical illness.

Can the urea breath test for h-pylori cause diahrrea. I had to drink a citrus type drink. Not sure what it had in it.

Can the urea breath test for h-pylori cause diahrrea. I had to drink a citrus type drink. Not sure what it had in it.

Unlikely: For the swallow urea labelled with either radioactive carbon-14 or non-radioactive carbon-13. Subsequently the detection of isotope-labelled carbon dioxide in exhaled breath due to splitting of urea indicates that urease is present in the stomach, and therefore that h. Pylori bacteria are present. This should not produce diarrhea. ...Read more
