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

What could cause me to have gas, bloating, stomach aches, and constipation?

What could cause me to have gas, bloating, stomach aches, and constipation?

Possibly: Excess fiber and not enough fluids. Remember, anything with caffeine or alcohol dehydrates and therefore creates an imbalance of fiber and fluids. Drink 80-100 ounces caffeine free/alcohol free fluid daily and eat a high fiber diet. If you are eating properly you do not need fiber supplements as this may cause an excess fiber and can lead to gas pains, cramping and constipation. ...Read more

Soft mushy stool burning anus gas bloating and some lower stomach pain while pressing on lower tummy green/brown in color some floating grease residue?

SoundsLikeARealGas..: First of all don't go near an open flame.

This could all be something that blows over in another day or two and you could wait if you want to, but if it's still as awful as it sounds, why take a chance? You are passing fats and bile. ...Read more

My eight year old daughter has been having stomach pain for one month. Today she threw up. She's had gas, bloating, nasia and acid reflux. Can virus last this long? Any way to cure virus?

My eight year old daughter has been having stomach pain for one month. Today she threw up. She's had gas, bloating, nasia and acid reflux.  Can virus last this long?  Any way to cure virus?

Unlikely virus: One month of abdominal symptoms is a little longer than one would expect from a virus alone. Abdominal discomfort can be from a lot of causes like constipation, stomach infection with H. Pylori, acid reflux, irritable bowel, celiac disease, or IBD. Try her on a natural organic diet rich in fiber and fluids. Also try probiotics. If not helping in a few days, see a specialist. ...Read more
