Stomach pain & motion issues

I'll try to keep it as short as possible. For the past 15-18 days my dad (69 years) is having stomach pain after urination & motion, some times high, others mildly.

Medication doesn't seem to help a lot, as the pain stopped for few days in between & again started. Our assumption was he was having these issues due to overheat. Its over 38 degrees regularly for the past 1-2 months over here.

We have done abdomen scan to check prostate status, it was fine. Checked thryoid, kidney, lungs tests. Only thing we found was, he has mild hypo throid, other than that he has no other abnormal report in any of the reports. So he's taking 25mg at the moment.

We're currently puzzled on what else did we miss. He's in constant discomfort. He gets burning sensation near his parts after urination & motion. Post that, he gets stomach pain, it usually goes away in 30 mins. I would really appreciate some insight on this, on what more could be done. We've so far consulted Family Physician, Liver & Gut specialist, Endochrinologist & also Rheumatologist. Every one says his reports are fine, he needs to take lots of water to get the heat out of the body, he's already doing that - having more than 4-5 litres a day.

I'm not sure if this the rite group, apologies if I have posted it in the wrong group.

    I would assume that they have checked his gall bladder and appendix.  these two organs can cause a lot of pain especially the gall bladder.

      Excuse my ignorance but don't the ball gladder & appendix results show up in Abdomen scan ? As if it doesn't none of the docs have suggested any tests relating to them probably so far.

      ** apologies for the multiple replies, I'm still figuring out how this forum operates.

    Ask for an abdominal ultrasound.  The thyroid controls much of the body’s functions, so if it is off balance it can cause all sorts of problems.  It is important for him to have his levels checked regularly to see if he needs his medication increased. 25mgs seems a low dose.  Check with your doctor to see if it needs adjusting.  Hypo thyroid can cause sensitivities to temperature and can cause you to feel cold when it is actually warm for everyone else.

      Yes we did an abdomen scan, nothing came out of it. Actually endochrinologist suggested 25mg, as he didn't have thryoid until now & its not too high for his age limit it seems (we did an test on last tuesday).  Family physician wanted him to start 12.5mg actually before consulting endo. On another note, I myself am an hypo throid patient for the past 1 year so I know how the body feels, I take 175mg on weekdays & 125mg on weekends.

      Has he had a urine test since he has pain after urination?  Maybe a colonoscopy will need to be done as well to find the reason why he has pain after passing motions. Hope you find a diagnosis.

      Thanks for the replies friends, appreciate it smile

      @Lester: Yes, he's now on an 1400 calorie diet for the past few weeks but he's not able to take even 1000 calories at times because of the stomach pain.
