Urgent Care – Minor Stomach Pain

Abdominal pain conditions

There are a number of pain-causing abdominal issues which are not of a severe nature, but may still require medical attention. In addition, with any amount of severe abdominal pain, it is important to rule out the possibility of more serious medical conditions. To do so, our staff will run the necessary tests and assess your symptoms. Some common but minor conditions which can cause abdominal pain are:

Urinary tract infections
Stomach viruses
Flu
Gas and constipation
Food sensitivities and allergies
Food poisoning
Heartburn, indigestion, or gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)

When severe abdominal pain is a concern and potentially minor options have been ruled out, it is important that more serious conditions are considered so that the proper treatment plan can be discussed and prepared for. Examples of more serious abdominal pain conditions include:

Appendicitis
Pancreatitis
Cancer of the stomach or colon
Diverticulitis
Endometriosis
Abdominal aortic aneurysm
Ruptured ectopic pregnancy
Ischemic bowel
Perforated stomach or intestine
