Gastroenteritis: If these symptoms have been recent, it probably is viral gastroenteritis. Keep yourself hydrated and it should hopefully get better. If it is persistent or has been going on for a while, it could be gastritis. Please do not hesitate to contact me if it goes on more than a week. Hope you feel better soon!

Hello, I'm 15 weeks pregnant and have had stomach ache (not lower abdominal pain) could this be my organs being pushed upwards due to my growing baby?

Hard to say: Pregnant women often experience a variety of discomforts. They also experience periodic digestive disturbances. They are also prone to bladder infections. When pregnant women experience pain it is important to have it evaluated in person with your doctor to determine if a clear cause can be identified.

I have lower abdominal pain. I have had a cold and have beeN coughing. I also had pain on my right side. Scared I have cancer?

Cough: Coughing can cause chest and abdominal pain especially if it is Hard coughing. If someone has a cold then these can accompany it. No worry about cancer if these symptoms appeared acutely and accompanied the cold. I would give it a week and see if they improve when the cold improves. After that, if no improvement then seeking expert help is advised.

A week after my period I started getting lower abdominal pain and some pain in my lower back. It is made worse when coughing?

Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment.

My lower abdominal pain got worse, moving towards the right. I can't sleep, est, walk, caugh, without it hurting. Been going on for a week. Help?

Get checked: Sharp abdominal pain may be related to ovarian cyst (several types) or function. If it moves to the right lower quadrant, it could be appendicitis. Have your family physician examine you, and determine if ct scan is necessary. Do not wait too long, or you risk a rupture of the appendix, with severe infection (sepsis).

I'm a male and I get lower abdominal pain after many times of sex or masturbations which last for few hours and gets better, anything to worry about?

I'm a male and I get lower abdominal pain after many times of sex or masturbations which last for few hours and gets better, anything to worry about?

No, but...: I would like to admire and praise your keen observation as described; that is a mindful connection of your body to deliver the commonsensical message, i.e., do not overuse. In process of sex or masturbation, the muscles & joints of whole body are involved in tense contraction, esp. Those of lower abdomen and the pelvis. This expected aftereffect is like soreness in the calf after long running.
