In brief: Find the cause first

There are so many different diseases that can cause abdominal pain.
Accordingly, in order to treat the pain, we first have to make a diagnosis. Your first stop should be to your primary care physician's office. They will take a detailed history and examination to help narrow down the causes. Testing will usually follow, which may include labs, ultrasound, ct, and/or endoscopy.
