Abdominal Pain Q&A

What causes abdominal pain?

Abdominal pain is one of the most common symptoms in many gastroenterological conditions and also features in other non-related conditions. Some of the possible causes include:

• Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS): abdominal pain with diarrhea or constipation
• Crohn’s disease: inflammation in any part of the gastrointestinal tract
• Ulcerative colitis: inflammation and ulceration in the large intestine
• Celiac disease: disease causing serious gluten reactions
• Diverticulitis: inflammation of tiny pouches within the colon
• Gastritis: stomach lining inflammation
• Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): chronic acid reflux
• Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO): excessive small intestine bacteria
• Hernia: part of the intestine protrudes through an abdominal muscle
• Stomach ulcer: open sore within the stomach lining
• Appendicitis: appendix inflammation
• Liver disease: hepatitis or cirrhosis

Abdominal pain can occur in your upper belly, mid-stomach area, or closer to the pelvic area. The pain’s location may provide clues about the cause. For example, IBS often causes cramp-like pain, while pain centered in just one part of your abdomen might be related to a stomach ulcer. A few of the non-gastroenterological causes of abdominal pain include endometriosis, kidney stones, and urinary tract infections. The pain can vary in location. For example, kidney stones can cause colicky abdominal pain, which comes in waves, but the pain location may vary as the stone moves.


When do I need help with abdominal pain?

Occasional abdominal pain isn’t unusual, but if you have recurrent and/or particularly severe pain with no obvious cause, it’s time to call Newtown Gastroenterology for help. Although abdominal pain usually has treatable underlying causes, in some cases, ignoring the pain could lead to a medical crisis.
