Abdominal Pain Q & A


What is abdominal pain?

Abdominal pain refers to any discomfort located between your chest and groin. Stomachache, tummy ache, gut ache, and bellyache are other terms you may use to describe your abdominal pain.

What happens during an abdominal pain evaluation?

The specifics of your abdominal pain evaluation at New York Medical Vascular Care may depend on your symptoms, medical history, and overall health and wellness. New York Medical Vascular Care has provided medical care for more than 20 years, and you can expect a comprehensive, patient-focused exam.

During your evaluation, your provider reviews your symptoms, medical history, and the types of medications and supplements you take. They conduct a physical exam and may request diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out a suspected cause of your abdominal pain, such as:

  • Blood work
  • Urinalysis
  • Stool analysis
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • Upper endoscopy

Based on the information gathered during your exam, your provider develops your personalized treatment plan, which may include disease-specific medication, lifestyle changes, or a referral to a specialist for further evaluation and treatment.

With localized pain, your abdominal discomfort occurs in a specific location in your abdominal area. This type of pain may indicate a problem with an abdominal organ.

Common causes of localized pain include appendicitis, kidney stones, and gallbladder disease.

Colicky Pain

If your pain comes and goes, then you have colicky pain. Kidney stones and gallstones cause this type of abdominal pain.
