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. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

After eating mcdonalds, I have severe lower abdominal pain. I figured it was gas and I have had a bowel movement, but it hurts to stand/move. Help!

Abdominal Pain: Could be several things in your age group. It's possibly unrelated to the mcdonalds food specifically. Appendicitis, ovarian cyst, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, viral colitis are among a few. Difficult to tell with short history. If you develop fevers, chills and persistent pain, you should go to the er. Health tip: don't eat mcdonalds....Ever! :). ...Read more

Foul smelling gas, lower abdominal pain and cramps during bowel movement, bloating, rectal bleeding. Approx 3 months with symptoms. 27 yr old female?

Foul smelling gas, lower abdominal pain and cramps during bowel movement, bloating,  rectal bleeding. Approx 3 months with symptoms. 27 yr old female?

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

Lower abdominal pain when bowel movement is trying to be passed. Those muscles hurt. Constant stomach gurgling. Diarrhea. Tightness in upper abdomen?

Lower abdominal pain when bowel movement is trying to be passed. Those muscles hurt. Constant stomach gurgling. Diarrhea. Tightness in upper abdomen?

If..: If symptoms have been present only for a few days this can be caused by a virus most of the time. In this case drinking plenty of fluids,rest and taking over the counter antidiarrheal meds and analgesics helps with symptoms. If this has been going on for more than a week or so then it is time to get checked. Make an appointment with your doctor if this is the case. ...Read more

My 14 year old son has sudden lower abdominal pain . No fever, no vomiting and  regular bowel movement . Also urination is normal .?

Abdominal pain: Sorry that your son is not feeling well. Abdominal pain without other symptoms can be a sign of many problems. You mention he has no vomiting but is he having any nausea? Has he been eating? If his pain is not improving or he develops any other symptoms he should be seen by his pediatrician. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
