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
- 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:
- Cancer of the stomach or colon
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Ruptured ectopic pregnancy
- Ischemic bowel
- Perforated stomach or intestine
