Hello,

I believe that your husband has two separate conditions.

The first one is that he probably has a peptic ulcer. This will not show up in a CT scan. But it causes abdominal pain, heartburn, indigestion and abdominal bloating. He needs tests like a gastroesophagoscopy and a barium meal Xray to diagnose if he does have an ulcer.

Another condition he could be suffering from is be a herniated spinal disc. This will press on the nerves supplying the lower part of the body causing lower back pain, pain in his legs and numbness or pain in his hips. An MRI of his spine will help in a diagnosis.

If he is borderline diabetic, then he needs to consult an endocrinologist to plan out his diet.

Overall, I think you need to ask your doctor for these tests or consult a different doctor.

 

I hope this helps.
