Potential Causes Of Abdominal Pain


Abdominal pain does not have a single cause. Many diseases can cause acute and chronic abdominal pain as one of the main symptoms.

Abdominal pain diseases most feared by people are;

  1. Appendicitis
  2. Gallstones
  3. Ulcers
  4. Food infections
  5. Disorders associated with pregnancy

In the presence of abdominal pain doctors will study the cause. The most serious conditions that can be detected by doctors include:

  2. Myocardial infarction
  3. Pancreatic and biliary tract diseases

Although the pain may become more intense in the abdominal area, it may not be originated in the abdomen. Some diseases that cause abdominal pain can come from other organs which could include:

  1. Heart attacks (ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction)
  2. Some diseases in the pelvis (peritonitis)
  3. Pneumonia gynecological problems that affect the ovaries or uterus

As we have seen, the abdominal pain may have multiple causes. Some of them may not originate from the abdominal cavity. The doctor will examine the cause of pain to reach an accurate diagnosis. Abdominal pain often relieves itself in a few hours or days. Other times it is necessary to perform a series of studies and begin appropriate treatment.
