At some point in our lives, we experience mild to severe abdominal pain. While some pains are not serious and just go away on their own, others are bothersome.

What is abdominal pain?

Abdominal pain can be sharp, dull, achy, and cramp-like, which may be mild to severe.

What are the symptoms of abdominal pain?

The symptoms depend on the possible cause of the abdominal pain. But the most common symptom is the pain itself.

What causes abdominal pain?

Lower Abdomen Pain: Possible Causes

Severe abdominal pain in the lower part may indicate appendicitis or intestinal obstruction. For women, it can be a symptom of ectopic pregnancy. Other possible causes include kidney stones, infection, or gallbladder stones. However, in most cases, especially if the pain is not that severe or if it is not frequent, the causes may be stress, constipation, diarrhea, or stomach flu.

Upper Abdomen Pain: Possible Causes

Pain in the upper abdomen could be caused by gastritis, which is the inflammation of the stomach lining. Other causes include acid reflux, injury, pneumonia, bloating, hepatitis, and gallstones. However, the best way to determine the cause is to have your pain diagnosed by a professional.

How is abdominal pain treated?

There are various medications and treatments available for abdominal pain. However, treating the pain or taking meds for the pain without consulting a doctor or without a proper diagnosis can be dangerous. Abdomen pain is treated based on the underlying cause and the accompanying symptoms.
