That your GI states that your abdominal pain is “something that they have seen many times before” leads me to suspect that your GI has identified yours as “functional abdominal pain syndrome” (FAPS) also known as “centrally mediated pain syndrome” (CAPS).
The pain associated with centrally mediated pain syndrome is real. It is not a psychosomatic disorder.
The underlying premise is hypersensitivity of sensory nerve ending imbedded in the wall of the abdomen as well as imbedded in the mucosal layering of the gastrointestinal tract (anywhere along its course, from the esophagus to the rectum). This is similar to other subtypes of sensory neuropathy (ex. diabetic neuropathy, chemotherapy neuropathy from platinum-based reagents).
Google “functional abdominal pain syndrome” (specifically) or “neuropathic stomach pain” (generally) to see if there are similarities in the clinical literature to what you are experiencing.
Pituitary failure, wide-spread endocrine dysfunction
Mixed connective tissue disorder
Extensive intestinal perforation with sepsis, permanent ileostomy
Avascular necrosis of both hips and jaw
