My husband is 35 years old. He is suffering from abdominal pain since last four weeks. When he gets pain it lasts for an hour. His hands and feet get cold. He had an endoscopy and colonoscopy done. The report says body and antral type gastric mucosa with mild chronic active gastritis composed of scattered lymphocytes and plasma cells in the lamina propria. There were minor changes suggestive of a PPI effect on acid secreting tubes. H.pylori not detected. There is no intestinal metaplasia, dysplasia or malignancy. His blood test report says lipase level 82 U/L. What do you suggest from the reports?
