In brief: Abdominal pain

A lot of problems and only 400 characters for an answer. You need evaluation for H Pylori infection, medication to control gastric acid, a HIDA scan to assess gallbladder function with or without CCK if you have gallstones or not.
You also need evaluation for kidney stones as this can commonly result in pain radiating down the flanks. You also need to be assessed for spine problems
