Abdominal Pains: Acute abdominal pains can be from a large number of different diseases. Some of these are treated with medicines others may require procedures or surgery. Also sometime abdominal pains can be from other parts of the body. I strongly encourage you to go to your doctor or the ER for an evaluation. They can order blood tests and x-rays to start to find the answer of why you are having pains.
