What's Wrong with my Dad??? Please Help.

My Dad has seen several specialists who keep sending him back and forth and don't seem to care to get a diagnosis, they keep running the same tests with the same normal findings (I am thinking they are running the wrong tests).  My Dad has had lower abdominal pain for almost a year now, at least that is what it started as.  This was followed by the onset of hot flashes, fatigue, headache and leg pain.  He is getting pretty frustrated, needless to say.  He first went to his family Doctor who said there was nothing he could do.  He went to a digestive specialist who ran him through a gammet of tests and just found some bacteria in his stomach that is pretty common, but treated him with antibiotics and told him to take Prilosec for possible IBS.  He was then sent to a Urologist and a Cardiologist who had all normal findings.  The Cardiologist has since referred him back to the digestive specialist who I am sure will be happy to run all of the expensive tests over again just to get the same results a third time.  If anyone has had these types of symptoms or similar situation, please reply.  Or, if you can just give me some advice or lead us in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post.
