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.

Painful stomach aches, many bowel movements &cramping the past 3 days. I have a cough too but no nausea or vomiting. Is it a stomach bug of some sort?

Painful stomach aches, many bowel movements &cramping the past 3 days. I have a cough too but no nausea or vomiting. Is it a stomach bug of some sort?

Stomach bug: try the BRAT diet. You can eat banana rice applesauce toast. See if you can hold down liquids first. Advance slowly. Sometimes it can last a while. So long as liquids are ok then you'll avoid dehydration. Over time if you do not feel any improvement then see your doctor. The cough could be the flu so if you are having fevers then see your doctor early. New treatment is antiviral medication ...Read more

There is a wide differential for stomachaches in a 19 yo woman. Consult with your doctor and consider whether or not you have been using excessive amounts of NSAIDs for any reason. ...Read more
