Stomach pain for over 4 months

I've been seeing a couple of doctors since October 2011. I have been having a lot of stomach pains. I have had a bunch of blood work checking my kidneys, liver, etc. And everything came back normal.

I thought I might be lactose intolerant, but that was ruled out. The doctors tell me it is a lot of stress, but I have been exercising a lot lately (1 hr every day) and trying to keep my mind off things. Before the holidays, I've been on a drastic diet change...no fast food, candy, pop, etc. except for a few special days (holidays, etc) and I've been drinking 100+ oz. of water a day.

I am about 6'2 and 260 pounds, so I am over weight but I have been losing weight and trying to be much more healthy lately.

I had diarrhea pretty often in October-December, but since right before Christmas, I haven't until just recently. I eat a lot of fiber foods, fruit, veggies, etc. I will sometimes have a bowel movement one day, and then not go for 4-5 days. I've been in pain for 4 months now and no one can figure out what is wrong with me.

Re: Stomach pain for over 4 months

Hmm, there are a lot of possibilities.

Where exactly is your pain? Can you describe it? Does it change right after you eat something? Does it get better after a bowel movement?

Fruits and veggies sounds like a good plan, is it helping?

What tests were done?

No, it's still pretty much the same.

I'm trying a cat scan later this month and then if problems still are happening, colonoscopy in June
