Oh man! That poor kid. My son has had similar symptoms for 2 weeks, 4 Dr.'s visits, CT scan, ultrasound and no answers. For him I think that it is an impacted colon and an allergy to shellfish. 

After 3 years without answers you must be so frustrated!

I hope I'm not suggesting anything completely inane. I'm sure after 3 years you've tried a lot of things.

Do you keep a log of what he ingests and when and track his pain level at various times of the day?

Have you tried an allergy panel or tried eliminating any foods?

 In conjunction with what you are doing with your Dr. and specialist have you thought about seeking alternative medicine? I've found 2 Dr.'s in my area that have both a western medical degree and the a form of alternative medicine education. One is educated in traditional chinese medicine and the other I don't remember exactly plain. I found them to be a very valuable resource since I'm confident that what they do or suggest will not interfere or harm any Dr. treatment. 

Good luck on your hunt for answers and hugs to you and your son!

How old is he? Have they checked out his appendix?

How old is he? 

Have you tried an elimination diet?  That sounds so frustrating not to be able to figure out the problem.  I hope the doctors figure it out!

Have you tried a diet low in fat and red meat and high in fiber?  Also, there is some relief with pancrease, which helps to digest fats for those who have trouble with pancreatitis.
