Exam needed: Persistent abdominal pain especially with associated tenderness warrants an examination by a physician or a surgeon. Possibilities include appendicitis, diverticulitis of the colon, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney stone, urinary bladder or prostate infection. Nexium wouldn't cause this discomfort. Evaluation in the emergency room would be best where prompt testing and examination can be offered

See your doctor: Nexiam is an excellent medication used for upper abdominal pain and heartburn. For your symptoms at least an urine test should be done to exclude an urinary tract infection.
