A few months ago, I developed a mild pain in the upper left abdomen right below the ribs. It would come and go or sometimes stay persistent. After a couple of months, the pain started radiating to the back. I do not seem to have any other symptoms. I do not know the cause of this pain.

Abdominal Pain - Know the Causes Behind It!

Abdominal Pain - Know the Causes Behind It!

There is hardly any individual across the world, who has not experienced abdominal pain. In most instances, these aches are not very serious and can be diagnosed and treated by addressing the underlying condition. It is very crucial to recognize the symptoms which are severe and know when an individual should seek medical assistance. 

Most common causes of abdominal pain: 

Some of the most common causes of abdominal pain include indigestion, infection, menstrual cramps. It may also be due to food poisoning and allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, gas formation and bloating, lactose intolerance, pelvic inflammatory disease or ulcers and hernia, gallstones and kidney stones, urinary tract infection, Crohn’s Disease or gastroesophageal reflux disease. 

Some patients have abdominal pain but the source of pain lies in the spine. These patients are often seen by multiple doctors and have undergone many tests but their diagnosis is never established. These patients should visit a pain specialist to reach a diagnosis and treatment plan. They have conditions like neuropathies or facet joint arthritis which cause abdominal pain due to a condition known as referred pain. 

Symptoms of abdominal pain that are cause for concern: 

  1. Abdominal pain along with any sign of dehydration or fever or is unable to pass stools.
  2. Abdominal pain associated with tenderness in the abdomen, painful and frequent urinations or persistent loose motions or bloody/ tarry stools. 
  3. Severe or recurrent abdominal pain.

Determining the cause of abdominal pain and treating it.

  1. Detailed medical history and thorough physical examination would be performed. Further tests like USG, Endoscopy etc may be needed to reach a diagnosis. 
  2. The treatment of abdominal pain is entirely dependent on the cause of the pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Dear lybrate user depending upon the medicines for long time surely not good for your health. Try to correct your digestive system with proper diet and lifestyle. Avoid the causes for gastric problems and take the necessary precautions. Long time popping omez d will disturb other organs in the body. -take avipattikar choorna 1tsp with warm water regularly before meals. -taking lemon water after every meals will accelarate your digestive system.

I am 25. I had been suffering from Irritating Bowel Syndrome since 3 years. It causes lot of trouble for the past 12 months. I wake up 8 am drink 3 glass of water then go to potty. It takes 40 minutes in the toilet. This time it is a mixture of stool: a small amount of hard stool with liquid / or shapeless soft stool with liquid. But a large amount of stool comes out in spite of eating few things. Then at 9 am take my breakfast 1 cup of tea and 3 roti. Then immediately in 2 minutes I again go to potty and jelly stool comes out in maximum cases. I am having a different kind of stool (thin, hard, or soft and liquid). I am having harder or looser stools than normal. I am suffering for a long time. Does it infect my bowel? Or Inflammation of the bowel movement? I am afraid of diarrhea. Does it lead to that? I do not know what happened. But I had a severe abdomen pain for the past 3 months. My whole stomach is paining. I can not move, can not work, can not bend at all. I can not sleep properly because of pain in the intestines. I have other issues like too much masturbation (thrice a day), night fall (3 days a week), early ejaculation, pain in the anus while ejaculating, late urine etc. I had been suffering frequent urination 15 times a day since 10 years. What should I do right now? 2 days ago I consult a Urologist. My blood test, urine test, ultrasound of the abdomen, x ray reports are ok. After seeing my reports the doctor refused to accept that I had any pain in my stomach. So he told not to worry. Prescribed medicines :- COLOSPA retard (200 mg) and FLOSLO 5. But I am still worried about my pain. Yesterday I was walking and it pained a lot. I am having stool problem for a long time and I have not done any stool test. Do I have any bacteria in my stool?

Yoga Poses To Get Rid Of Gas

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Yoga Poses To Get Rid Of Gas

Apanasana (knees pulled to chest)

Process
Lie flat on your back and relax your body. Place your hands on the knees and inhale. Pull the knees on the chest while exhaling. Rock the knees side to side for improved stretch. Inhale and exhale 5-10 times and then release the knees. Repeat thrice.


Setu bandha Sarvangasana (bridge pose)

Process

Lie on your back and bend knees. Place your arms down and flatten your feet on the floor. Incline your hips which will stretch your chest. You can press one hip and pause the pose for 5 breaths. Switch it to the other side. Place your hands below the body as you incline the back. You could also clasp the hands together and intertwine the fingers.

Paschimottanasana (seated dorward bend pose)


Process

Sit on the floor and stretch your legs in front. Keep your back straight and slowly hinge ahead to touch your feet. This will lift your hips and lower the torso. Pause for 5-10 breaths.

While your try to reach your feet, try to stretch as much as possible. If you do not reach your feet due to lower flexibility, you could keep practising it regularly for a healthier body.

Marjaryasana and bitilasana (cat and cow)

Process

Place your hand and knees on the floor so that your back is flat up. Inhale and make sure that your abs are engaged. Exhale by dropping your head. Round up the spine which gets you to the cat pose. While you inhale, arch the back and hold your head and hips up. This is the cow pose.

Repeat both the poses alternatively. While you inhale, you could be on the cow pose and while your exhale you should be the cat pose. Repeat 5-10 times.

Balasana (child's pose)

Process

Sit on your knees but spread the legs so that there is adequate gap in-between. Now lean forward and stretch arms in front. Make sure your back is straight and your forehead on the floor.

If you want the pose to be a little easier you keep a pillow to rest your head on it.

Staying in constant practice with exercise and yoga is one the best ways to maintain a healthier you. Our body is the only thing we live in and health is our first priority. Take some time out for regular yoga, so that the next time you eat a little extra you're not worried about the repercussions. Our body becomes more flexible with regular yoga and it also improves our mental health.

Sitz bath is a wonderful remedy in relieving the pain. It not only gives a soothing sensation and provides relief from pain but it also helps in keeping the perianal region clean. And you can also talk to your treating doctor.

I am a diabetic type 1.I have read somewhere about pancreas transplant in India. Can you suggest me if it is possible or not. My age is 29.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For treating diabetes pancreas transplant is considered to be a permanent cure. But the this is one of the very difficult procedures, not yet very commonly done. Secondly availability of live pancreas is the most difficult problem. It still a very experimental procedure, may take years to become a reality. There are experiments going on for stem cell generated pancreatic cells formation, but still at lab level. Thanks.

1) oily food & cold drinks can trigger gas problems & discomfort. 2) more gas formation is due to improper digestion. 3) take 2 spoons ghee before meal 2 times 4) use butter milk in meal 5) do pavanmuktasan daily empty stomach & vajrasan after meal. To improve digestive system.

Hi...relax.. Homeopathic remedies are natural and completely safe, with no side effects. They work by balancing the hormone level in the body and shrinking the fibroids. The length of treatment varies from woman to woman and essentially depends on the size and number of fibroids. Homeopathy, being a holistic treatment method, not only aids the treatment of the discomforts caused by uterine fibroids but also has a positive effect on the overall health of the woman. main symptoms of fibroid in uterus include: • Menorrhagia (excessive/prolonged bleeding from uterus), • Metrorrhagia (bleeding from uterus in between menses), • Dysmenorrhoea (Pain in uterus during menses), • Pressure symptoms on urinary bladder causing frequent urination or difficulty in emptying the bladder, • Pressure symptoms on the rectum leading to constipation, • Anemia due to excessive menstrual blood loss, and • Backache. you can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.

gym will not do anything in case of Gall bladder stones, so you can do it, but if stones are multiple and smaller in size they may move further in the biliary tract even in pancreatic ductal system, so get it removed surgically if it so and you have symptoms too.

What are the solutions?
Dear, the main cause of gastric problem are * hurry * worry *curry * firstly take your meals with proper chewing and do not be hurry in taking meals to avoid acidity after meals. * take less spicy food & avoid chilly in meals. * try to avoid stress. If you feel unable to avoid stress & extra thinking then follow meditation techniques. Sit in a calm & well airy room & do long breathing. Concentrate on your breathing. Do it for atleast 3-5 minutes twice a day. You can do anulom - vilom pranayam in the morning. It calm down your mind and lower the gastric irritation. * put 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds (saunff) in a glass of water in night and drink this water in morning everyday to cure gastric problem. * take few leaves of mint (pudina), coriander leaves (dhania), pinch of rock salt & pinch of black pepper. Crush them well and make paste. Take 1 teaspoon this paste (chatni) with meal in morning & evening.

Pl take care of your eating habits. If you feel burning in stomach, then you better is to take fruits and reduce regular meals. Sometimes, simply eating less takes care of stomach trouble. A use ful way is to divide both lunch and dinner into two or three halves each, with interval of two hours between each half, so that through out the day you eat sufficiently but also avoid over loading of food on stomach and thus help to prevent acidity, indigestion etc please make it a point that too bitter, too sour, salty, hot, pungent, dry and burning foods are to be avoided as such foods cause distress, misery and disease. Thus deep frying foods or foods taking lot of oil as in gravy vegetables, salty foods, spicy foods, long preserved, frozen foods, junk foods like pizzas burgers chips are to be avoided. Drink two glasses of warm water on empty stomach every morning about 30 minutes before breakfast. Try it! this works amazingly! in addition, walk fast for 30 minutes every day or engage in some service every day. Please also do meditation regularly and sincerely which has been scientifically proved for overall health. Use parsley and jeera seeds while cooking vegetables.
