Abdominal Pain Diagnosis Chart
Doc said ibs, but not sure if right diagnosis. Often upper abdominal pain sometimes lower, extreme nausea, big loss of appetite, change in bowel habit?
I have upper abdominal pain and am throwing up. Have a past diagnosis of acute pancreatitis. Go to ER or a stomach bug? How long do I wait?
Depends: If you had the type of pancreatitis that landed you in the hospital for several days, that would indicate that you had severe pancreatitis, hence I would not wait very long. If it was managed as an outpatient, then it was less likely to be severe and you might be able to wait longer> this is not an easy one to answer without more info, calling you primary md sooner rather than later is wise.
Many possibilities..: Possible causes of upper abdominal pain include gallbladder disease, ulcer disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, intestinal cancer, etc. I advise you to see your doctor for further evaluation including a thorough medical history, physical examination, blood tests, and possible ultrasound, ct scan, or even upper endoscopy, depending on the above information.See 1 more doctor answer
Watch your diet: Abdominal pain upper right or left could indicate gallbladder disease it depend on if the pain is associated with food it can be caused by constipation as well watch your bowel movement it can be caused by irritable bowel syndrome that can cause bloating and pain secondary to spasm in the intestine triggered by food or stress.
Depends: Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease). You should contact your pcp to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound.
Find cause 1st-C MD: Many different diseases can cause abdominal pain, some mild, others serious. It is impossible to make even an educated guess without better-understanding the type, duration, and frequency of your pain; what brings it on, what relieves it; your age, sex, past history; physical examination findings; results of supportive tests which may include blood tests +/- x-rays. We can only do this in-person.See 1 more doctor answer
Can't help: Unless more detail. If pain is severe go to the emergency department for work-up. If not so severe, see your pcp and in either case provide more details. How long have you had this. Is it made worse or better by anything. Is there any associated symptoms etc.
Yes: Depends on cause. Some things like perforated ulcer and pancreatitis can present this way. Other things like gallbladder attacks or heartburn are common. Can also be unusual sign of heart ischemia -angina- if worse with activity. Need full story and exam to narrow down.See 1 more doctor answer
Many possibilities: Without further information, it is nearly impossible to guess the varieties of causes of upper abdominal pain. Muscle pain or injury, gastritis, stomach ulcer, pancreatitis, gallstones, liver conditions, biliary dyskinesia, food borne illness, etc. Would need to see a doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
See your doctor: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.
Ulcers? Constipation: Ulcers, constipation, pancreatitis, diverticulitis, splenic (rare), gallbladder. When do you get pain? What type? How long does it last? Anything make it better? Anything make it worse? Does food affect the pain? Have you had any surgery? How long has it been there? Have you tried any medications? Did they work? Did you injure yourself? Pulled muscle etc? See a doctor for exam and studies.
Many things: Your description is insufficient to make a diagnostic decision, but includes acid reflux, esophageal spasm, gastritis, gastric or peptic ulcer, pancreatic disease, biliary tract disease, colitis or colon tumor. More details and diagnostic tests are necessary to give you a more detailed answer. All of these possibilities should be ruled out by your physician as soon as possible. Don't delay.
