Exact cause cannot be identified without investigations but one thing is for sure that he needs to doctor in ER because this can be serious.

It's better that he don't take anything now and see doctor because pain killers taken on own can mask the underlying problem.

He needs to get an ultrasound and or CT scan with blood tests for pancreas and liver.
