Abdominal Pain- Dubai General Surgery Clinic

 Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain the feeling of pain in the region between the chest and the pelvis. Pain impulses will be carried to the brain by specific nerve fibers. Pain is clearly a sign of a problem. Pain can be divided into Acute (sudden and can be severe), or chronic extending for a longer period of time with variable intensity. Pain also could be psychogenic, which is physical pain caused by emotional or mental issues. For example, headache, back pain, or even stomach pain.

Abdominal Pain can be cramping, stabbing, dull, achy, sharp, intermittent, or persistent.

 A pain scale is done to evaluate the intensity. Nevertheless, this pain scale chart depends on the self-evaluation of a patient. However, it helps to appreciate and improve the quality of handling the pain.

 The pain scale chart is from 0 to 10:

  • 0 - No pain
  • 1 to 3 - Mild pain
  • 4 to 6 - Moderate to severe
  • 7 to 10 - Severe to worst pain.

The major organs that are located in the abdominal cavity which can be a source of pain are the liver, gallbladder, stomach, spleen, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, appendix, kidneys, uterus, ovaries, and part of the urinary bladder.bookanappointment (1)

The localization of the pain may help us to find out the reason for it. We can divide the abdomen into four quadrants: the right upper, the left upper, the right lower, and the left lower quadrant.

 Geographic abdominal pain can be for example:

Upper abdomen: Gallstones, hepatitis, pneumonia, heart attack, pancreatitis or duodenal ulcer, kidney infection, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Center of the abdomen: Gastroenteritis, hernia due to obstruction, or traumatic injury.

Lower abdomen: Constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, appendicitis, hernias, cancer, or nephrolithiasis.

Mild pain may go away without any intervention but if persists or it becomes moderate to severe you should immediately seek medical help.

Symptoms associated with abdominal pain are

Neglecting the pain can deteriorate the case, which is why it is necessary to consult healthcare expertise in order to diagnose, find out the cause, and treat it if needed.

Depending on the case, diagnosis starts with a physical examination followed by an ultrasound of the abdomen. If further investigations are needed, this may include a blood test, urine, stool analysis, and imaging tests (X-ray, MRI, CT scan, endoscopies such as gastroscopy for the esophagus and stomach, and colonoscopy for the large bowel). 

Your health is very important. Any delay from diagnosis to treatment is associated with a worse outcome. If you need any help or support, you can contact us at any time.
