sons stomach pains

Hello..My name is Chris...I have a 15 yr old son who has been having stomach problems for at least 6 mo..  He has diareaha everyday..and pains in his abdomin (abdomen)...The other day he called me from school doubled up in pain.. I took him to the doctor and they took blood test and a stool sample....Nothing...I still want to know what is going on with him.  They put him on Prevacid...its only been a couple days but he still has this problem. I am worried about him..please give me some advice what I should do.

Hi,
Chronic diarrhea could be due to malabsorption syndromes, irritable bowel syndrome and even due to infections outside the gut.
A complete evaluation by a gastroenterologist has to be done.
