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

Constant abdominal pain relief when passing stool. Mucus in stool and loose stool. Physical exam, blood and stool test were negative. Is it IBS or IBD?

Constant abdominal pain relief when passing stool. Mucus in stool and loose stool. Physical exam, blood and stool test were negative. Is it IBS or IBD?

Either or other: Your symptoms are consistent with both irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease among others. I am not sure what physical exam means and it is very important HOW the stool blood test is done to be accurate. Start taking a daily fiber supplement and drink plenty of fluid. If symptoms persist you need to see a GI specialist and have at least a sigmoidoscopy or "short scope". ...Read more

For past 5 months had abdominal pain(improved after bowel movement), mucus in stool, loose stools. Physician refused referral thinking is hypochondria?

For past 5 months had abdominal pain(improved after bowel movement), mucus in stool, loose stools. Physician refused referral thinking is hypochondria?

Maybe IBS?: If the symptoms have been long term, they may be representative of irritable bowel syndrome. However, other problems must be ruled out before that diagnosis can be determined. If you have not already, I would increase the amount of fiber in your diet. If this does not help, I would return to your doctor, to see what the next step in the work up is. Good luck. ...Read more
