Abdominal pain is one of the most common issue that may impact more than 90% of the population. The intensity of the pain may frighten us, but it is not necessarily because of something serious. Although, lingering symptoms can be a sign of chronic disease that should be treated.
If some type of pain lasts more than two weeks (long-term bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, blood in the stool, etc) you need to consult your doctor for a full diagnosis. The location, chronology, severity, aggravating and alleviating factors, and related symptoms helps your health practitioner predict the exact diagnosis.
Abdominal pain can be any kind of unpleasantness felt in the chest area and groin as well. Since this is an extensive area of the body, you need to know the exact location of the pain so you can easier find the cause. The evaluation of abdominal pain requires an understanding of the possible mechanisms responsible for pain, a broad differential of common causes, and noticing the typical patterns and clinical presentations.
