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

My 5yr old has had sporadic diarrhea/low grade fever off/on over 4weeks. Now she has fatigue, no appetite, pale stool, mild abdominal pain.

Not sure yet: I strongly suggest you have your child see his/her pediatrician. What you describe could be as simple as a prolonged gastroenteritis (i.e. Stomach bug) but the duration makes me worry that it may be something else. I can't be more specific without an exam and a lot more questions. Be sure to write down the frequency of stools, their color/consistency, and any other symptoms (nausea/vomiting, etc. ...Read more

See your Dr!: Some changes in stool color are normal, due to variations in diet, however if you are also having abdominal pain, you should see your Dr. Sometimes gallbladder disease can cause stools to be a light white-clay color from lack of bile, whereas too much bile can make the stools green! Pain is located on the rt side, but it is worth ruling out. A good exam and labwork should help determine the prob. ...Read more

Non-cardiac pyrosis?: For food-associated epigastric pain, reduce consumption of spicy, greasy food, mints, chocolate, tomato-based products, caffeinated & fizzy drinks, & eating before bedtime. Lose weight as warranted. Elevate head of bed on blocks. Stop smoking, alcohol, nonprescribed NSAID's. Consider a 2-4 week trial of over-the-counter PPI's (Prilosec, Nexium, (esomeprazole) etc). & still no relief, don't delay medical eval pls ...Read more

See your physician: It's somewhat worrisome that you are having pain for such a long period of time. The pain from a typical viral gastroenteritis usually won't last 3 weeks and usually presents with acute diarrhea. The presence of pain is more significant than the green color(which often indicates that food is passing thru your intestines faster than usual). You must see a physician for a proper diagnosis and Rx. ...Read more

My daughter is 16 and has never gotten her period? Is there anything wrong with that. She gets pale, vomits, gets abdominal pain, symptoms of cramps

Needs a full eval: Failure to have menses by 16 is abnormal. If you add this to periods of abdominal pain & the otherwise developed young woman may have a problem that needs medical attention.Sometimes the vaginal opening is covered by a full membrane rather than a partly open hymen.This can prevent menstrual flow & lead to the symptoms you describe. ...Read more
