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.

Been having severe low abdominal pain,but how is it possable to put on up to 5+ lbs in a day sometimes wihout eating and im not drinkin 5+lbs,????????

No: The observations and math calculations don't sound correct. First, there is no source of increased weight unless a person eats or drinks (or gets IV fluids). Secondly, almost never does a normal person not eat or drink in a full 24-hour day, unless she is very ill. In any case, "severe abdominal pain" needs an evaluation by a doctor to check for appendicitis, diverticulitis, or other bad problems. ...Read more
