Asked for female, 39 years old from Bangalore
Abdominal pain can have innumerable causes. If she is having pain for 3 days, then it should be properly investigated. I will recommend you to at least see a pediatrician so that you don't miss any thing important. I have enumerated below some common questions that we as a doctor will like to know about to come to a better conclusion about a problem. Try to mention these when you report abdominal pain.
1. The patient will need to tell, what part of the abdomen hurts: whether it is the whole abdomen or only the lower or upper part of the abdomen?
2. Relation of food intake with the pain: does the pain or burning occurs after meal intake or does taking a meal resolves the pain? Sometimes the food intake will have no relation to the pain, so you should mention it so.
3. Fever, nausea, vomiting: any feeling of vomiting (nausea), actual vomiting or fever should be mentioned.
4. Any jaundice, change in bowel habits (diarrhea, constipation, change in color or consistency of stool) should be reported.
5. Medication history: if you are taking any medications for the apin or for any other illness. Then will these should be mentioned.
6. Any previous surgeries or medical conditions have to be informed about
7. Any known drug allergies are very important to know.
8. Any urinary complaint: burning during urination, change in colour of urine, urgency or crying during urination.
9. Lastly, if any investigations have been done: any blood test, ultrasound, ct scan report should be mentioned too.
