Hi Diane,

If your husbands pain is in a very specific spot and not spread over a general area then a simple test for your husband to do first is “Carnett’s test” or Carnett’s sign. If you Google “Carnetts test”, you’ll find plenty of links.
Here is one that might pop up.

It’s a very simple test to detect if the pain is coming from the abdominal wall (ACNES) or from something inside his abdomen instead.

We were looking at this video yesterday. I realize by researching that the Carnetts test is what he needs, yes, but how do you get a doctor to do it? They don't want you telling them what to do.....I will take any advice given
