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.
I want to get a Dietary for Gastritis problem. Not for my problem actually but for my sister in law who is severely suffering from Gastritis. She is 45 years old.
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:
- Abdominal pain along with any sign of dehydration or fever or is unable to pass stools.
- Abdominal pain associated with tenderness in the abdomen, painful and frequent urinations or persistent loose motions or bloody/ tarry stools.
- Severe or recurrent abdominal pain.
Determining the cause of abdominal pain and treating it.
- Detailed medical history and thorough physical examination would be performed. Further tests like USG, Endoscopy etc may be needed to reach a diagnosis.
- 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.

Hello Doctors, Mai daily baar baar stool krne jata hu ek baar me nahi atti latering. Thodi thodi aati aur patli aati hai. Please advise.
Hi Doctor ,I need to know about a gastric ulcer. I am suffering with this problem for 2 years. I got a Endoscopy report which showing that, a small gastric ulcer.
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?
Apanasana (knees pulled to chest)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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.
