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.

Is it normal to be bloated and feel a lot of abdominal pain during radiation therapy?

Yes: If treating in the abdomen with radiation, the intestines and stomach are rather sensitive. We see nausea, diarrhea, bloating and all of this can lead to feeling pain and discomfort. The level of this is patient dependent. Some feel very little while someone else gets the full enteritis that can even be seen on ct scans. We use various medications to treat these symptoms to complete treatment. ...Read more

I am 42 y i did tah bso for endo 4.I am on anti estrogen therapy now I am having severe lower abdominal pain.Is it possible that endometriosis is back?

Possibly : I imagine that you had similar pains before surgery. It is unlikely to have endometriosis recur after the ovaries are removed unless they are giving you estrogen replacement. Endometriosis can cause scarring and adhesions along with the surgery, and some of these pains may have to do with old scarring but can be due to recurrence of endometriosis. ...Read more

Can hormonal pills affects your stomach? Such as abdominal pain. Stomach cramps and diarrehea? What is the best cure of this?

Yes: Hormone pills can definitely affect your digestive tract. If you just started them, these side effects typically get better with time. You wouldn't want to miss a real stomach infection, however, so if you have a fever or the pain and diarrhea continue for more than 24 hours, you may want to see a doctor. If you have a fever, definitely see a doctor or urgent care. ...Read more
