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.

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

Having sudden abdominal pain after straining during a bowel movement; what could it be?

Many causes: Excessive straining may just cause pain from overstretching/overpushing of the bowels. It may also be that you stressed your abdominal muscles. Sometimes, if you are known to have a hernia (umbilical or groin), you may push it out and it may get trapped causing severe pain. This is an emergency and needs to be dealt with in er. Some patients especially elderly may end up with spine fractures. ...Read more

Please get help...: Gi bleeding is never normal, but when prolonged for months associated with lower abdominal distress as you describe, then colitis (colon inflammation) must be ruled out. Possibilities at your age most likely include: 1) inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or crohn's); 2) infection, maybe chronic or recurrent. Don't delay further--get evaluated by your doctor or GI specialist. ...Read more
