In brief: Abd pain

Has he seen a GI before? Could be gastritis.
Does he take a lot of advil/motrin? Has he been tested for ulcers, either through stool tests or endoscopy? Or been tested for celiac disease? Or any bloodwork up done? Is he coughing? You also never know about a lower lobe pneumonia if this is more acute onset.
