Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

I'm having some sharp abdominal pain that comes and goes... I just found out that im pregnant. Are these signs of miscarriage?

Probably not: If you aren't having any bleeding it is unlikely that this is a sign of a miscarriage.Severe pain that lasts is very worrisome and should be evaluated immediately but sharp twinges can just be the stretching uterus. The cause can vary with the different stages of pregnancy. When in doubt, call your OB. Best wishes ...Read more

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, i would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

Need opinion. Chronic nausea every morning for 2 weeks, lasts until evening, accompanied with some abdominal pain and back ache. Miscarriage 6 wks ago?

Not sure of question: I can't tell whether you are not sure that you had a miscarriage 6 weeks ago or whether you are asking whether or not a miscarriage from 6 weeks ago could STILL be causing these symptoms now. You state that you are NOT pregnant meaning you have taken a recent HPT. Is that right? Under circumstances I believe your best option to ferret things out is to your OB/GYN doctor. ...Read more

See your gyn ASAP: U need to make sure u do not have an ectopic preg in the tube or an ovaian cyst on that side or possibly an appendix problem, hopefully u will end up with a successful normal preg this time but if u do not u need an extensive workup because if u have 3 in a row u have a very high chance of having a 4th without a proper workup. ...Read more
