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.

I have been suffering for 2 month, dr said its twisted bowel and give me pills for relief of stomach ache, doesn't work, i think its too late?

Need Definitive Dx: "twisted bowel" usually refers to a small bowel obstruction, a diagnosis that can only be made by history (vomiting, pain, no flatus or bm) exam(distention), and x-ray; with few exceptions, this requires hospitalization & possible surgery. If this does not go along with your clinical picture, i would search for an alternate diagnosis--perhaps a second opinion would be a good idea? ...Read more

Intestinal problem: The belching is probably due to inadequate acid in the stomach that gives a gaseous digestion and that causes belching that burns.
