About Abdominal Pain

At University Urgent Care in Fort Worth, TX, we serve the Frisco Heights, Tanglewood, Paschal, and TCU neighborhoods with superior care. Our dedicated and highly trained staff are equipped with all of the latest lab equipment and tools necessary to properly diagnose a painful abdominal issue. Abdominal pain ranging from mild to severe is a common complaint caused by a variety of conditions, affecting different people for a number of reasons. Abdominal pain can result from mild heartburn and indigestion to more severe conditions, like gallstones and appendicitis. If you begin to experience abdominal pain that does not subside with rest or over-the-counter medications, we recommend you seek medical treatment at our Fort Worth area facility.

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

How do we determine the underlying cause for abdominal pain?

Anytime you feel abdominal pain and are unsure what has caused it, we believe that you should seek medical advice. Our urgent care medical team is extremely experienced with a broad number of abdominal conditions and is equipped to make a diagnosis and treatment plan in a timely manner. After an initial discussion and examination, we will likely draw blood to be sent to our CLIA/COLA-certified onsite laboratory.
