Stomach pain is a very common reason for people to visit a doctor. When a patient complains about stomach pain, they are often referring to pain from the abdominal area. This may not be directly related to the stomach. It could be coming from another organ or another part of the digestive tract.

What causes a painful stomach?

There are many causes of a painful stomach. It may have been something you ate that gave you gas or possibly made you constipated. It may be caused by an ulcer or an excessive build-up of acid in the stomach. It could be something else that is causing a digestive disorder. It could also be caused by a functional or structural problem.

What type of doctor should I see for stomach pain?

Sometimes medical concerns require special attention from a doctor who has more knowledge in that specific area. If your issues are related to your stomach or other parts of your digestive system or gastrointestinal tract, you will probably need someone who has more experience than your primary care doctor does. A gastroenterologist has more years of medical training and experience dealing with diseases that are related to the digestive tract. Seeing a doctor who specializes in issues of the gastrointestinal tract can lead to much more effective treatment. Effective detection and treatment can lead to fewer complications and a more rapid recovery. It can also lead to fewer complications when receiving treatment.

What can I do to relieve stomach pain?

There are several things you can do at home to try to relieve stomach pain. Try drinking clear fluids, water is especially good. It is good to stay away from alcohol if your stomach is causing pain. Also avoid lying down, lying down makes it easier for acid to move backward causing heartburn.

When should I go to the doctor for abdominal pain?

Usually, abdominal pain will only last for a short period of time. Often, it isn’t severe and will resolve itself when digestion starts to normalize or with very little or simple treatment that can be done at home. Over-the-counter items, such as antacids or other types of medication may be sufficient to solve the issue.

It is recommended to contact a healthcare provider if:

● you have a dull pain lasts for more than a week
● the pain is significant for more than 24 hours or if it worsens or occurs frequently
● you are losing weight and can’t explain why
● you have diarrhea that lasts for more than five days
● you have a fever with your pain or painful urinating

In more extreme cases, emergency care may be required. Go to emergency if:

● you have persistent nausea and vomiting or pain when you vomit blood
● there is pain while not being able to have a bowel movement
● you have continued bleeding from your bowels
● you have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing while having gastric pain
● you have sudden and severe pain, swelling of the abdomen, or severe tenderness.
