Don't Ignore the Acute Abdominal Pain

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Don't Ignore the Acute Abdominal Pain

Everyone can suffer from pain in the stomach, at one time or the other and we usually ignore it. But when the pain is sudden and severe abdominal pain then it is termed as acute pain and this should not be ignored.

Often the following can be expected with acute pain:

  1. Acute abdomen pain is usually synonymous with rapid onset of the symptoms which might indicate life threatening intra-abdominal pathology.
  2. Pain is just a feature and not necessary that it is present at all times. An acute abdomen which is pain free usually occurs in children and women who are in their third trimester of pregnancy.
  3. The differential diagnosis is difficult and wide especially in primary care. This is because the different organs within their peritoneal cavity might have different areas of referred pains.
  4. Abdominal pain usually happens to be in the top three symptoms when patients present their state in the emergency and accident departments. But only few of these have acute abdominal pain.
  5. Management of the abdominal pain should be the primary focus and an assessment should be done to reach the differential diagnosis so that care can be given accordingly.
  6. The clinical evaluation regarding abdomen pain can change quickly. Any diagnosis which had been made can change and both doctor and patient should not be hesitant and seek other treatment.

Conditions which might cause acute abdomen pain are:

  1. Meckel's diverticulitis or Acute appendicitis
  2. Acute cholecystitis
  3. Ectopic pregnancy
  4. Acute pancreatitis.
  5. Peptic ulcer disease
  6. Diverticulitis.
  7. Intestinal obstruction, including paralytic ileus (adynamic obstruction)
  8. Pelvic inflammatory disease.
  9. Gastrointestinal (GI) haemorrhage
  10. Gastroenteritis.
  11. Acute intestinal ischaemia/infarction or vasculitis.
  12. Acute urinary retention
  13. Renal colic or renal tract pain
  14. Testicular torsion
  15. Abdominal aortic aneurysm
  16. Non surgical diseases like pericarditis, sickle cell crisis, acute intermittent porphyria, HIV-associated lymphadenopathy, bowel disease, typhoid, opiate withdrawal, enteritis, pneumonia, myocardial infarction and hepatitis.
  17. Rare causes might include thromboemboli, phytobezoar, and phytobezoar

Diagnosis of abdominal pains:

  1. Patients can be ordered to get their blood tests done. Also if need be then imaging can also be referred to them.
  2. Following tests can be done to rule out the condition causing the abdominal pain:
  3. Blood Tests: these include FBC, LFTs, glucose, amylase, clotting, calcium and arterial blood gas for pancreatitis
  4. Crossmatch or group and save
  5. Pregnancy test in women of childbearing age
  6. Blood cultures
  7. Peritoneal lavage in case of an abdominal trauma
  8. Urine analysis
  9. X ray of the abdomen, ultrasound, CT scan
  10. ECG and cardiac enzymes
  11. Laparoscopy should be a routine procedure

Hi, I have pain in my stomach badly. What should i do?

Hi, I have pain in my stomach badly. What should i do?
There are a various causes for stomach problems, treatment depends on the location, severity and type of pain. Laboratory tests such as the complete blood count (cbc), liver enzymes, pancreatic enzymes (amylase and lipase), urinalysis are frequently performed in the evaluation of abdominal pain. If you have h. Pylori infection for which I can prescribe a 14 day treatment plan which will eliminate it. Untreated infection causes ulcers in stomach and may finally lead to cancer. If your pain is occurring once in a year and not regular then such types of pain could be amoebic infection, worm infestation or premenstrual cramps. If pain is occurring frequently then get ultrasound abdomen done.

Fasting blood sugar more than 126mg% means you have confirmed diabetes - since you are not on any medication probably you are aware of the fact-continue nutritional balanced diet and exercise. Get your hba1c done every 4 monthly and try to maintain below 5.7%

Doc, you said ear had 3 parts, how will I know if my ears is affected by 1, 2 or 3? I'using hearing aid now but the sound is not good and I cannot identify the voice, I been with my audiologist many times to fine tune my hearing aids but still the same. What should I do?

Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Audiologist, Kolkata
Hello, after audiometry test the audiologist will either mark or show pictures of ear to compare your hearing status, and tell you which part of your ear is affected. Nxt part is about your hearing aid, get your audiometry test again and adjust your aid accordingly, if the problem is not resolved then it is either your sensorineural loss or the aid is not suitable for your loss.

I have been diagnosed with moderate conductive hearing loss. The doctor has advised that I need a procedure - to be exact, stapedectomy. My hearing loss started after my pregnancy and I understand that it may be due to my genetics as well. My question is, how safe is this procedure and will my normal life change afterwards? I am a health freak and I love gymming, aerobics and constantly move around. Will my life change?

Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Audiologist, Hyderabad
You can lead a normal life after stapedectomy. Hearing improvement depends on the amount of boneconduction affected and intactness of cochlear haircells. So donot worry about surgery or its side affects.
