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.

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.

My 9 yrs daughter has abdominal pain almost every morning, before/during/after bowel movement, while having breakfast, sometimes, at dinner time. Why?

55 possible reasons!: However, most common reasons are usually benign. I agree with the other doctors: you need to pay a visit to your doc, and more history needs to be obtained. Make sure stool is not hard (should be like peanut butter in consistency). Make sure eating is not stressful and forceful. Dont ask much about pain, but be very observant, if clear signs of persistent pain then see your doc even sooner. ...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?

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
