Abdominal pain in most situations is not harmful, on the contrary, in some cases it can be a sign of a serious illness. If you can pinpoint the exact location of the abdominal pain,
you can actually diagnose what disease you are suffering from. This is still not enough to confirm your predictions; it is important that you consult your doctor to resolve this issue.
Severe stomach pain in almost all situations means that you have a serious illness. Even if the stomach pain is not severe, but lasts for a long time, you need to pay attention to it, because you may be suffering from a chronic disease that requires immediate treatment!
It is understandable that you have stomach pain from time to time, but when the same type of abdominal pain lasts for more than two weeks, you should immediately consult a doctor. If this is not the case, a routine examination is recommended to ensure that mild abdominal pain is not related to a serious medical condition. Abdominal pain (if it is a sign of a serious illness in the body) can also be accompanied by other unpleasant side effects such as blood in the stool, diarrhea, vomiting, or prolonged swelling.
FIND OUT THE REASON WHY YOUR STOMACH HURTS
The image below is like a “map” of your stomach, and depending on the different areas of your stomach, you can easily tell what’s wrong:
- Zone #1 indicates a high risk of gallstone formation. In this situation, pancreatitis or gastric ulcer cannot be ruled out either.
- Epigastric hernia, pancreatitis, gallstones, indigestion, heartburn or stomach ulcers are the main risks if you feel pain in the number 2 area.
- Stomach area number 3 is associated with people suffering from blockage of the bile ducts, problems with the pancreas, duodenal ulcers and stomach ulcers.
- You almost certainly have kidney stones if you feel pain in area number 4. Lumbar hernia, constipation, and urinary tract infection are three other risks that, unfortunately, you cannot rule out in this situation.
- Zone number 5 means umbilical hernia, Crohn’s disease, inflammation of the colon, early stage appendicitis, gastric or pancreatic ulcer.
- Pain in area 6 indicates diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, constipation and kidney problems.
- When you choose pain in the area number 7, it may mean that you have pelvic problems, appendicitis or constipation.
- Area #8 indicates inflammatory bowel disease, appendicitis, and urinary tract inflammation.
- Finally, you could be suffering from an inguinal hernia, gynecological problems or diverticular disease if you constantly feel pain in the area of your abdomen #9.
It is very important that you go through these 9 areas of the stomach and think about them when the stomach pain lasts too long or the pain is severe. Seeking a doctor as soon as possible is good in this case, because you have a great chance of saving your life from the worst.
