Hello.
Thank you for your response.
Your father seems to have an acute abdomen and because he does not have any localizing symptoms, a specific diagnosis cannot be arrived at this point.
The cause of his pain could be a metabolic derangement, an infection etc.
He requires a physical examination and/ or tests to come to a diagnosis.
So I would suggest that you take him to the ER for further management.
Please make sure he does not eat or drink until he has been examined by a doctor and causes requiring surgical intervention are ruled out.
I hope this was helpful.
I will keep this consult open so that you can get back anytime.
Wishing your dad a speedy recovery,
Kind regards.
