Abdominal pain can strike at any time, and sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether or not it is an emergency. This is because abdominal pain can occur as a result of numerous causes – including indigestion, intestinal gas, food poisoning, menstrual cramps, heartburn, gallstones, pancreatitis, [1] inhibited blood supply to the colon (also known as ischemia), stomach cancer, [2] kidney stones, inflammatory bowel disease, umbilical hernia, appendicitis or a urinary tract infection.

If abdominal pain is mild and does not inhibit a person’s ability to function, or does not otherwise compromise quality of life, people generally choose to carry on, opt for an over-the-counter or home remedy, or schedule a non-urgent appointment with their medical practitioner. Sometimes, however, it is not easy to decipher whether or not your abdominal pain requires immediate medical attention. Abdominal pain can sometimes indicate serious illness and thus should not be ignored.



If your abdominal pain is severe or persists more than 24 hours, it is typically recommended by professionals that you see a doctor or go to the ER right away. You could very well be dealing with something as simple as cramps or minor food poisoning, but it would be beneficial to have a second opinion to rule out life-threatening illness. Pay close attention also to accompanying symptoms (for example fever, painful urination or constipation) [3] and bring them to the attention of the physician. You should also call a doctor or get to a hospital immediately if your abdominal pain is accompanied by bloody diarrhea, bloody vomit, black stools, or fever above 101ºF / 38.3ºC.

A severe pain in the abdomen could mean appendicitis, which can be a life threatening problem. However, appendicitis is often difficult to diagnose in the early stages – and by the time it has become severe, it can be very dangerous. For example, the younger brother of the author of this article was diagnosed with the stomach flu by his doctor. The doctor sent him home, where he stayed drinking chicken soup and tea, thinking all he needed was rest and home remedies to recover. However, his condition worsened. When the pain became so severe that he was rushed to the Emergency Room, he received a far more extreme diagnosis: His appendix had ruptured and he needed an urgent laparoscopic appendectomy to save his life.

Although there is often “overlap” between the areas of the abdomen that may be in pain due to a particular cause, this general chart may be of value in a preliminary assessment. However, we do stress that (as with the rest of this website) this is not medical advice, and that appropriate professional medical care should be sought, especially in cases of greater severity.

Further reading: During our research we also found a more thorough and detailed list of abdominal pain symptoms, which we think is great as it has more comprehensive descriptions, together with lists of potential accompanying symptoms and suggested courses of action.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
