Some abdominal pain is simple and progressive and does not need treatment and heals on its own, but sometimes abdominal pain is dangerous and even fatal, and if we do not help the patient within a few hours, his life and health are in danger. ….
Dangerous or serious pain has characteristics that it is important to pay attention to in order to act in a timely manner and see a doctor.
The abdomen is the space between the diaphragm (the lungs below the lungs) and the entrance to the pelvis. Took place. On both sides of the vertebrae and in the back area, the kidneys and urinary tract system and a little lower and in the lower abdomen, uterus, ovaries and appendages are located in females.
Injury and dysfunction in any of these areas can cause pain. Because these organs are stacked together, one of the best early ways to diagnose pain is to pay attention to the signs and symptoms. Abdominal pain is different and is one of the most common reasons for patients to see a doctor.
13 types that need to be followed are:
The source of these pains is outside the abdomen, ie the patient goes to the doctor with abdominal pain and after examinations and tests, it is found out that the pain is related to the infection of the lower lung due to pneumonia or the infection has spread pain to the abdominal cavity . These types of pain are of the referral type.
Severe and breathtaking pain
The debilitating and severe pain that results from a person who is bent over, unable to sleep, or unable to attend work is severe and needs to be investigated.
Short-term abdominal pain is usually not important. For example, excessive gas production in the intestines and its movements may cause pain and usually improve after a short time, but its persistence can be problematic. Severe recurrent and prolonged pain are areas that should be considered.
Pain accompanied by fever
Pain with fever is unusual pain and usually indicates an infection inside the body. Sometimes ulcers of the stomach or duodenum can rupture and cause infection in the abdominal cavity. Intra-abdominal abscesses, inflammation of the gallbladder or pancreas, and affected kidney stones are important causes of fever and pain, all of which are important diseases.
Pain accompanied by jaundice
The presence of pain associated with jaundice requires more careful examination and sometimes hospitalization of the patient. This symptom can be due to the presence of gallstones, shaking and resulting in obstruction of the bile duct. These patients present with severe pain and vomiting and sometimes need surgery as soon as possible.
Pain in the back
Back pain may be confused with back pain or muscle aches, but the accompanying abdominal pain and back pain are sometimes due to inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) or inflammation and duodenal ulcer. These patients should also be screened for heart disease.
Pain accompanied by gastrointestinal bleeding
Abdominal pain and vomiting containing blood may be due to bleeding from the esophagus or stomach. Bleeding is sometimes caused by ulcers in the upper gastrointestinal tract, chronic liver disease, or even gastrointestinal cancers. Sometimes gastrointestinal bleeding manifests itself with black stools, and sometimes in a person with abdominal pain, clear blood is expelled from the anus with or without stools. In all these cases, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
8 pain that is exacerbated by changing position
If, as a result of movement, side-by-side and coughing, abdominal pain is exacerbated, something important has probably happened and the lining of the abdominal cavity is inflamed. This condition is called peritonitis. Peritonitis is a medical emergency and often requires emergency surgery. Such people experience very severe pain during the abdominal examination with the slightest pressure on the abdominal wall. Perforation of the lining of the intestine or stomach and blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the intestines are some of the causes of peritonitis (inflammation of the inner abdominal cavity).
Pain that shoots into the groin
Pain that starts in the lower back and spreads to the groin is usually caused by kidney disease, such as kidney infection and kidney stones. Patients often have other complaints such as heartburn, nausea and vomiting.
Some patients point to a specific spot, such as the navel or side, or a spot below the ribs, and complain of pain in these areas, and no signs of disease are found on examination. These pains are mostly psychological (psychosomatic). At this time, doctors encourage the patient to sleep well, exercise, and control environmental stress, and refer him or her to a psychiatrist if necessary.
Pain caused by activity
This type of abdominal pain should be considered more seriously. If the upper abdominal pain is caused by activity, such as exercise or climbing stairs, especially if it is accompanied by nausea and shortness of breath or sweating, it may be heart pain. Unfortunately, patients with such pain present very late and often attribute the pain to stomach problems.
An important feature of heart pain is that it is exacerbated by activity and improves with rest. Sometimes the pain of a heart attack is not felt at all in the chest or arms and is only felt in the upper abdomen.
It is a viral disease that sometimes begins with relatively severe abdominal pain and is difficult to diagnose at first, but after about a week from the onset of symptoms, blistering lesions appear in the painful area of the abdomen and the diagnosis is definitive. This pain is usually one-sided.
In most women, menstruation begins shortly before menstruation begins. Many women are familiar with this type of pain and experience it every time they menstruate. If each period of pain is abnormal and different from previous periods, the patient should be examined. Ovarian cysts may rupture or even ectopic pregnancies may cause similar pain.
