Complaints of acute abdominal (abdominal) pain describe medical conditions ranging from mild to emergency conditions. Evaluation of symptoms of abdominal pain requires information about the history of symptoms felt, physical examination, laboratory examination, and imaging examination. Treatment can vary depending on the diagnosis of the underlying disease.
The quality of pain needs to be assessed whether it is continuous or disappearing. Pain that is lost or colicky can be suspected disorders of the bile ducts, digestive tract and urinary tract. Then the location of pain becomes preliminary information which is also important to estimate the underlying cause of pain and becomes a guide for further examination. Abdominal pain can be felt on the right, left, center, or bottom.
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. Lower abdominal pain can indicate food digestive disorders, excessive gas in the elderly, hernias, or in women can be a symptom of endometriosis, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, or pelvic inflammatory disease.
Whereas complaints of right abdominal pain most often indicate appendicitis, inflammation of the large intestine, ureteric stones, gastroenteritis, or diverculitis.
Investigations that may be needed include routine blood tests, routine urine, abdominal x-ray, CT scan, or MRI according to the clinical suspicion of the patient.
Beware if you experience persistent pain, severe vomiting, fever, diarrhea, or blood in the urine or feces, then immediately do an examination with a doctor for examination.
That's all, hope you can help
