Your abdomen contains many organs, and as a result, pain can occur for many different reasons, some related to gastroenterology and some not. Some of the most common causes include:
food allergies or sensitivities
liver or kidney diseases
gallbladder disease or gallstones
inflammatory bowel disease
irritable bowel syndrome
tumors or blockages
gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
Sometimes, pain in the abdomen can arise as a result of eating foods that cause gas or from a mild stomach virus, and a visit to the doctor's office may not be necessary. But when pain is recurrent or persists for more than a day or two, if pain is severe, if it's accompanied by bloody stools, vomiting or fever, you should call the office to schedule an evaluation to ensure your symptoms are not part of a larger and more serious medical condition.
The first step is to take a complete personal and family medical history to look for clues to the cause of your symptoms. A physical exam and a review of your symptoms – their severity, whether the pain is a dull ache or a sharp pain, and when you first noticed them – can also be helpful. Blood tests, stool samples, endoscopy or colonoscopy, and diagnostic imaging may also be ordered.
Depending on the underlying cause of your pain, your treatment could include lifestyle and dietary changes, medication or surgery for more serious issues like hernias, gallstones or bowel blockages. Before any treatment is prescribed, you'll have a comprehensive exam to ensure your treatment is the most appropriate and most effective for your needs.
We currently participate with the following health care plans. For more information, please call the office.
