Many people have suffered through debilitating abdominal pain for many reasons. The root of this abdominal pain is hard to distinguish because it largely depends on what organ in the abdomen is causing it. Remember, there are a lot of organs in the torso – so the discomfort you’re feeling may not be a simply stomach ache. Thankfully, our Doktor ng Bayan Dr. Willie Ong has listed these answers to help you locate the origin of your abdominal pain.
Take time to read his important explanation to figure out the reason for the abdominal pain.
1. Digestive Disorders
The most common possibility of abdominal pain might be an ulcer, a hyperacidity, and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
2. Gallbladder Stones
The gallbladder is located under the liver. The common symptom of the gallbladder stones is characterized by stomach pain. Eating oily foods trigger the abdominal pain caused by the gallbladder stones.
3. Acute Pancreatitis
The pancreas can be found at the back of the abdomen, behind the stomach. Acute pancreatitis gives a severe abdominal pain. The common cause of acute pancreatitis is too much food intake and alcohol drinking.
4. Female Reproductive System
Women who are suffering from an ovarian cyst may experience pain in the lower abdomen. Also, the Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) contributes to abdominal pain.
5. Urinary System Disorders
If you’re experiencing a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) or kidney stones then you can expect abdominal pain to follow. Always drink a lot of water in order to flush out the stones and infection.
Colic is characterized by a fluctuating pain brought by intestinal gas. Colic occurs when there’s too much food intake or diarrhea.
Although it’s rare to consider this deadly disease, there’s always a possibility that it might be cancer that gives abdominal pain.
In the end, Dr. Willing Ong emphasizes the importance of visiting a gastroenterologist in order to diagnose what causes the abdominal pain.
