Many Possibilities: Sorting thru the cause of abdominal pain is like solving a mystery: we compile many "clues" (symptoms, examination findings, lab results, radiologic tests) to narrow down the possibilities. This requires face-to-face evaluation. That said, problems of the gallbladder, pancreas, liver, stomach, colon, kidneys, bladder, uterus, ovaries may all cause abdominal pain. Good luck!

Many: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment.
