Good evening, thanks for the question
Abdominal pain or abdominal pain that is acute or sudden can describe a variety of medical conditions ranging from mild to emergency conditions. Evaluation of abdominal pain symptoms requires information about the specific symptoms felt by the patient, physical examination, laboratory tests, and imaging tests. Pain location is an important initial information to estimate the underlying cause of pain and become a guide for further examination.
Pain in the left abdomen can indicate disorders in the large intestine such as colitis, diverticulosis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, or disorders of the kidney such as kidney stones or kidney inflammation. In complaints of right abdominal pain most often caused by disorders originating from the liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, or pancreas.
In addition there is also a type of abdominal pain that arises is called colic. Colic pain is sharp and localized which can occur suddenly and disappear. These complaints can indeed be repeated in a long time. Colic pain generally originates from organs that have cavities including the digestive tract and urinary tract.
Information about the signs and symptoms and physical examination later will greatly help the doctor to estimate the cause of abdominal pain at this time. Furthermore, further examination can be done according to medical suspicion, for example abdominal x-ray, CT scan, BNO-IVP, and so forth.
Furthermore treatment can be adjusted according to the underlying cause. If the cause is a urinary tract stone then the stone needs to be evacuated, if the cause is an infection in the intestinal mucosa, the infection needs to be treated with medication, and so forth.
It is better not to take medicine without being free without doctor's recommendation. Carry out further consultations with your doctor if the current complaint does not go away, especially if you have a history of certain diseases in the digestive tract, as well as surgery. If the diagnosis is clear then the treatment can be more directed and complaints will be resolved.
That's all, hope you can help.
