Abdominal Pain - When Should You Not Ignore It & Visit A Doctor?

Abdominal Pain - When Should You Not Ignore It & Visit A Doctor?

Abdominal pain also referred to as stomach ache mainly appears in the pelvic and chest regions. The pain can be dull, crampy, sharp or recurrent. It occurs mainly due to a disease or inflammation that affects the abdominal organs. It is very important to seek the assistance of a doctor, especially if the pain is severe and is associated with pain in the chest and trauma or injury. It is not necessary that the pain in the lower abdomen be a cause of alarm, but it is essential to know the cause of the pain.

Symptoms of Abdominal Pain

  • Belly ache is not something one should get worried about, but if the pain radiates downwards from the chest it could be a sign of heart attack. If chest pain radiate to left arm or back then think of cardiac and rarely pancreatitis ( especially for radiation to back).
  • In case the symptom is accompanied by lightheadness or shortness of breath, it is very important that the doctor is contacted immediately.
  • To avoid serious medical conditions, it is best to avoid pain killers as the symptoms would get hidden and the cause of pain would be difficult to identify.

What are the Main Causes of Abdominal Pain?

  • The major organs of the abdomen include the stomach, gall bladder, small and large intestines, kidneys, liver, pancreas, appendix and spleen.
  • Significant abdominal pain is caused mainly due to bacterial, parasitic and viral infections that affect the abdomen.
  • The abdominal pain could be caused due to inflammation, intestinal disorders and blockages.
  • The other common reasons that can produce pain in the lower right abdomen include diarrhea, constipation, stress, vomiting, stomach flu, and acid reflux.
  • In the case of acid reflux the contents of the stomach go back into the esophagus and cause symptoms such as heartburn.

Common Causes of Pain in the Abdominal Region
The most common cause of abdominal pain is constipation, which is caused by difficulty in the digestive tract to push the waste out of the body. Severe pain in the lower abdominal area can rupture the organs and result in appendix. Infection in the kidney or occurrence of stones in the gallbladder can also cause pain in the abdominal region. Pain in the abdomen can also be caused by different types of cancer.

Some of the causes of abdominal pain are life threatening and therefore it is important to consult a doctor if the pain persists or lasts for a few days. It has been observed that even a heart attack can cause pain in the upper abdominal region or even cause back pain. Immediate medical attention should be sought in cases where the patient has fever, severe pain, weight loss, persistent vomiting and nausea, swelling of the abdomen and severe tenderness on touching the abdomen..

Bloating - How Best It Can be Treated?

Bloating - How Best It Can be Treated?

The only thing that can ruin a great meal is the feel of a bloated tummy afterwards! Usually any abnormal swelling, or increase in diameter of the abdominal area is termed as bloating. The condition has become very common and is experienced by people around the world. Poor diets, sedentary lifestyle, high levels of stress and need for daily medications seem to be making people more prone to this epidemic. It can sometimes also be a result of an underlying health issue that you might be unaware of. The good thing is that there are signs of it which can be watched out for.

What to Keep an Eye Out For: To start off, there is the sign which is considered to be rather obvious by many- flatulence. If a person wants to get rid of flatulence for an extended period, he or she should consider this to be a warning.

Bloating itself can be a sign for other problems which are deeper. The prime example of this happens to be coeliac disease. A bloating of the stomach which is accompanied by pain and a puzzling loss of weight could be signs of this disease.

If a fever seems to keep recurring without a cause which is explainable, it could be a sign of bloating. As a matter of fact, this sign along with bloating also does signal some infection, which should be looked at immediately by a medical professional. Also, too much stress on a person could be a sign of impending bloating issues.

Getting Rid of Bloating: In order to cure bloating which is caused by flatulence, an easy and elementary solution is to eat your food slowly and to chew properly. In serious case, seeking adequate medical help is important.

When a person finds that he or she seems to be suffering from bloating very often, it is a good idea to maintain a food diary. This will help find whether there are certain trigger foods which cause bloating. The pattern can be discussed with your doctor and concrete steps can be taken towards a complete solution.

Simple lifestyle changes beyond the diet can also make a difference. These include correction of sleeping and eating habits of a person. You are also required to be very regular with this.

Bloating always has some signs which are associated with its causes so it makes good sense to be aware of the same as the saying goes - A stitch in time saves nine! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gastroenterologist.

we need to treat root cause of acidity. As you told that acid is coming up to teeth, this can cause dental erosion. Get your upper GO endoscopy and 24 hr Ph metery done. If diagnosis maid get it treated. Avoid fatty meals, smoking, chocolate, tea, coffee and maintain normal weight.

Dear lybrate-user, as we need to avoid drugs during pregnancy, try to change your feeding pattern. Avoid lot of spicy, citrus food, milk and fruits. Take small frequent normal diet. You can take antacids if burning sensation occurs. However if symptoms are really bothering you then consult Gastroenterologist.

My baby is 3.5 mnth old he is having loose motions and little bit fever from 4-5 days. What could be the reason?
Hello lybrate-user, first of all confirm that fever is present or not. Also loose motion can be due to recent change in dietary pattern or infection. Try exclusive breast feeding and if not possible sterlization of feeding utensils is very important. If fever and loose motion persists contact paediatrician immediatly.

Hello lybrate-user, GERD is very common problem not a days but its symptoms mimics many other disease. Its diagnosed is made after UGI endoscopy, Esopahgeal manometry and 24 hr Ph metry. Once diagnosis is made PPI are given which may be required life long. However now a days antireflux endoscopy managements are available which are day care procedure and donot require any open surgery. Patient can be discharged on same day and requiremement of PPI decrease markedly and sometime they are stopped. So, surgery is not required in all cased. If you wan you can contact us for same.
