how long has it been off feed and how much are you feeding.  Try just feeding hay for a day then give back grain.

I'm not sure what the climate is but I would feed him at a earlier/later time when it's cooler sometimes it's just heat

Get some buttermilk down in his stomach.  Same principle as beer and probiotics.  Seems to coat the stomach to ease any pains.  Try it.  it will work.  This is what my dad used in the 50's before probiatic paste came along .  Still works.  Hope you already have him eating.  Good luck.   Sometimes the old ideas works better.  Sosmetimes not.
