Maybe you should get a second opinion from a gastroenterologist - an x/ray and blood tests for liverfunctions and pancreas enzymes may be useful as well as a gastroscopy to evaluate the inside of the stomach and upper small intestine. You may even have a stone stuck in the pancreatic tube that is causing the cramping!
