Abdominal pain, constipation, nausea with weight loss. Cause?

Resolved Question:

I believe my husband been misdiagnosed. He suffer from upper abdominal pain, chronic constipation throughout the day and night, nausea, abdominal swelling and pain but weight loss. he has unusual frequent dark urination. First they thought it was just acid reflex and gave him famtodine. then second time they thought it was a stomach virus and gave him tramadol then third time they gave him muscle relaxant and said he pulled a abdominal muscle and that's why he is hurting. What is wrong with him. He had no bowel movement for over a week. Prior to the first er visit he was pooping green stools for a couple days.

I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you .
It looks like your husband is having functional dyspepsia and functional constipation. But few tests are to be done before calling it functional.
The following tests are to be done -
1. Complete blood count
2. Blood glucose
3. Thyroid function test
4. Ultrasound scan of the abdomen
5. Upper GI Endoscopy
6. Test for H.pylori
7. Stool occult blood test
8. Colon transit study.
You can discuss with his doctor about getting these tests done.
Meanwhile he can take nexium and miralax for symptom relief.
I hope that answers your query.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
