Belly Pain (Definition)

Belly pain is also known as Abdominal pain. 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.

Having low abdominal pain from right to left but mostly in the center and 90% of the pain is with movement pain comes and goes what can cause this?

More details needed.: We don't know enough to say what is going on. How long has this been going on? Have you hurt yourself or changed your activities or exercise routine? Do you have any other symptoms, like fever, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea? Generally speaking, pain only with movement can indicate a strain or sprain "pulled" muscle, but that's not always so. So it would be wise to see a doctor to evaluate. ...Read more

Lower left abdominal pain, comes and goes, GP said muscle related. The pain moves around and can feel the muscles pulling if I stretch. Have had a sore lower back for a long time aswell. Deff muscle?

General advice: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, and, pain near the surface, associated with moving muscles, painful when just the muscle is poked...... is usually from a muscle. You'd be surprised how very many people are admitted to cardiology units for this. ...Read more
